- collectors Product Personality "In 2008 an estimated 750,000 cosmetic procedures, 271,000 of which were surgical, were performed in people aged 20 to 29, according to the ASPS. And 81,900 surgical procedures were performed on children and young adults aged 13 to 19." Real Life Dimensions/Negative Image “Barbie has always represented that a woman has choices. Even in her early years, Barbie did not have to settle for only being Ken’s girlfriend or an inveterate shopper. She had the clothes, for example, to launch a career as a nurse, a stewardess, a nightclub singer. I believe the choices Barbie represents helped the doll catch on initially, not just with daughters - who would one day make up the first major wave of women in management and professionals – but also with mothers”- Ruth Handler, Barbie Developer Youthful Happy Feminine Price Place Promotion Many varieties and product lines
