Limited-edition Charlotte Barbie dolls

Posted on 6 Apr 2008 by Justin Ruckman

There’s an email going around lately with images and descriptions of supposed limited-edition Charlotte (and North-Carolina-at-large) Barbie Dolls. It’s hilarious, but after a fair amount of searching I can’t find any information as to where the email is from or who created it.

I’m reposting it here. If anyone knows how it should be attributed let me know.

Southpark Barbie

This princess Barbie is sold only at the Southpark Mall. She comes with an assortment of Kate Spade Handbags, a Lexus SUV, a long-haired foreign dog named Honey and a cookie-cutter house. Available with or without tummy tuck and face lift. Workaholic Ken sold only in conjunction with the augmented version.

Huntersville Barbie

Recently moved from California. The modern day homemaker Barbie is available with Ford Windstar Minivan and matching gym outfit. She gets lost easily and has no full-time occupation. Still goes back to California for Drs. appt, shopping, bakery, pizza, weddings, and funerals. Traffic jamming cell phone sold separately.

Ballantyne Barbie

This yuppie Barbie comes with your choice of BMW convertible or Hummer H2. Included are her own Starbucks cup, credit card and country club membership. Also available for this set are Shallow Closeted Ken and Private School Skipper. You won’t be able to afford any of them.

Central Avenue Barbie

This recently paroled Barbie comes with a 9mm handgun, a knife, a Chevy with dark tinted windows, and a Meth Lab Kit. This model is only available after dark and must be paid for in cash (preferably small, untraceable bills), unless you are a cop, then we don’t know what you are talking about.

West Boulevard Barbie

She jus lookin for all three of her baby daddies. Set comes with baby Nieshia and baby Twanna.

NoDa Barbie

This doll is made of actual tofu. She has long straight brown hair, arch-less feet, hairy armpits, no makeup and Birkenstocks with white socks. She prefers that you call her Willow She does not want or need a Ken doll, but if you purchase two NoDa Barbies and the optional Subaru wagon, you get a rainbow flag bumper sticker for free.

Chapel Hill Barbie/Ken

This versatile doll can be easily converted from Barbie to Ken by simply adding or subtracting the multiple snap-on parts.

Concord Barbie

This pale model comes dressed in her own Wrangler jeans two sizes too small, a NASCAR t-shirt and tweety bird tattoo on her shoulder. She has a six-pack of Bud light and a Hank Williams Jr. CD set. She can spit over 5 feet and kick mullet-haired Ken’s butt when she is drunk Purchase her pickup truck separately and get a confederate flag bumper sticker absolutely free.

Monroe Barbie

This tobacco-chewing, brassy-haired Barbie has a pair of her own high-heeled sandals with one broken heel from the time she chased beer-gutted Ken out of Linden Barbie’s house. Her ensemble includes low-rise acid-washed jeans, fake fingernails, and a see-through halter-top. Also available with a mobile home.

Wilkinson Boulevard Barbie

This Barbie now comes with a stroller and infant doll. Optional accessories include a GED and bus pass. Gangsta Ken and his 1979 Caddy were available, but are now very difficult to find since the addition of the infant.

Gastonia Barbie

Look at the picture … need we say more? Pabst Blue Ribbon sold separately.

    I remember seeing it posted on a few weeks ago.

    I read this at about two a.m. and woke my sleeping husband up all the way down the hall — they’re perfect! However — Charlotte gets divided into all these areas — Concord doesn’t, the historic/downtown Concord is totally different from the mismatched paint/primer job, trucker hat, and PBR of the Concord listed! :D

    While this is extremely insensitive on a number of levels, it made me LOL. It’s good to have a healthy sense of humor about ourselves. LOVE IT!

    You know you’ve made it when you’ve been moulded in miniature plastic. But you know what children do with Barbie dolls — it’s a bit scary, actually.
