Barbie Gets Old, Complete With Wrinkles and Crow's Feet

‘Barbie has grown old’ was submitted by user "imaniceguy" at the website Incredimazing. Whether this person or another created this photoshopped Barbie doll with wrinkles, crow's feet, silver hair, and bags under the eyes, is unknown. 

The reason I find this Barbie doll who looks like a grandmother so interesting is because it’s something we don’t see everyday. Even on dolls meant to represent a grandma or grandpa, their faces are smooth, and it’s their gray hair and 'elderly' attire that give them an old feel.

I think it would be great if Mattel gave this famous iconic toy an un-makeover. They could call her Baby Boomer Barbie, which would be appropriate considering that she recently celebrated her 50th anniversary.
