"Barbie Strogg" is an unexpected but fabulous surprise.

For generations, boys have been pulling off Barbie's head. I'm sure they'll think twice before messing with this killer version, Barbie Strogg.

I like how the Barbie Strogg comes with blood smeared around her mouth, and machine gun arms. She looks dangerous!

Implications - As pop culture increasingly develops in every direction, the scope and breadth of parody has been keeping pace. This has seen a commensurate increase in products and designs which take familiar icons and reinvent them in new and unexpected ways and the result is a product that has an entirely new appeal. Business leaders can make the most of this trend by looking for inspiration even in previously explored territory and markets. Stats for Mutant Dolls Trending: Older & Mild
