Barbie’s ride gets a major makeover

From the MAKE: Flickr pool

Flickr member mskogly posted this heavily modified, psychedelic freak-out-mobile –

Noah (6) and Leo (4) creates their own art car. The original car is a pink barbie monstrosity (who gives a pink car to a boy?), that could only be improved by gluing a boxload of found trash and marbles on it.

Looks like some real fun was had here – definitely should be more toys out there designed directly by kids. – Toy Art Car Project 2008

    I would like to say that my sons like pink just fine, and it is sad to see people continue to try to enforce gender stereotyping.
