GRADUATE SCHOOL BARBIE (TM)
Graduate School Barbie comes in two forms--Delusional Master's Barbie (tm) and Ph.D.
Grad School Barbie comes out of the box with a big grin on her face that turns into a
frown after 2 weeks or her first advisor meeting (whichever comes first).
Adorable black circles under her delightfully bloodshot eyes.
Comes with two outfits--a grubby pair of blue jeans and 5 year old Gap T-shirt, and a
floppy pair of gray sweatpants with a matching T-shirt (official seals for most
universities are available).
Grad School Barbie talks! Just press the button on her left hand and hear her say such
upbeat grad school phrases like, "Yes, Professor, It'll be done by tomorrow"
"I'd love to write it all over again" and "Why didn't I just get a job, I
could have been making $40,000 a year by now if I had just started working with a
Bachelor's. But noooooo, Mom and Dad wanted a masters degree, I wish somebody would drop a
bomb on the school so that I'd have an excuse to stop working on my degree that's sucking
every last drop of life force out of my withered and degraded excuse for a soul..."
(9 V lithium batteries sold separately)
Grad School Barbie is anatomically correct to teach kids about the exciting changes that
come with pursuing a higher education. Removable panels on Barbie's head and torso allow
you to watch as her cerebellum fries to a crispy brown, her heart race 150 beats per
minute, and her stomach lining gradually dissolves into nothing.
Deluxe Barbie comes with specially designed eye ducts. Just add a little water, and
watch Grad School Barbie burst into tears at random intervals. Fun for the whole family!

Grad School Barbie's Fun Fridge (tm). Well stocked with microwave popcorn,
Coca-Cola, Healthy Choice Bologna (99% fat free!),and small bottle of Mattel Brand Rum

GRADUATE ADVISOR KEN--Barbie's mentor and advisor in her quest for
increased education and decreased self esteem. Grad Advisor Ken (tm) comes with a supply
of red pens and a permanent frown. Press the button to hear Grad Advisor Ken deliver such
wisdom to Barbie as "I need an update on your progress" "I don't think
you'll be ready to graduate yet" and "This is no where near ready for
publication." Buy 3 or more dolls, and you can have Barbie's Thesis Committee!
(Palm Pilot and tenure sold separately.)
REAL JOB SKIPPER--When Barbie needs to talk, she knows that she can
always count on her good friend Real Job Skipper (tm), who got a job after getting her
bachelor degree. Press the button to hear Real Job Skipper say, "Sometimes I wish I
went for my masters degree" and "Work is so hard! I had to work a half an hour
of overtime!" Real Job Skipper's Work Wardrobe and Savings account sold separately.
WARNING--Do not place Grad Student Barbie and Real Job Skipper too
close to each other, as there have been several mysterious cases of children leaving the
room and coming back to find Barbie's hands mysteriously fused to Skipper's throat.
