DD says she wants a Barbie, but they seem to have fixed limbs. Anyone know?
Would your DD prefer the two Frozen dolls or a Barbie? What do you find they play with more?

Do Barbie's arms and legs still move at the joints?

I did a 21st pole dancing birthday cake with a barbie last week. This particular barbie's limbs was hard plastic not that squishy rubbery plastic like they used to be. I tried to bend the knees like all mine did in the 90's no luck. Her arms and legs did move at the shoulders and hips though.

I think you can get cheaper ones (still barbie) that are hard plastic and some clothes are moulded on as a part of her body. If you want to shell out more then you get barbies like we had as kids.
I could be wrong though, dd is too young for barbies and I have only been in that aisle in recent years for my nieces.
As for which I would rather it would depend on the recipient. Is she a huge frozen fan?

I picked up some second hand barbies to 'convert' into weeping angels from doctor who. A couple had arms that were fixed but the rubbery knee joint. One had joined wrists, elbows and knees. It seems different types have different configurations. Can't speak for what to look for new though. Hopefully you can see in the box exactly what type of joints you're looking for. Side note: cutting barbies hair off, hot gluing them into a standing position, spray painting them to look like stone and drawing a scary face on them is a very satisfying thing to do to a barbie doll lol

She said she wanted a Barbie but I can't seem to find a decent one. I remember buying a gorgeous one about 4 years ago for less than $40 but they all seem really cheap now. I think Toys r Us have a few $80 ones that look gorgeous but I'm not buying that one unless it's half price!
