What Childhood Toy Did You Want But Never Receive?
Nicole Dieker

Totally Hair Barbie. Look how rad she was! If I remember right, though, my parents got me the wrong Barbie (horror of horrors) — which was a big deal, because allllll of my other Barbies were actually knock-off generic brand “fashion dolls.” I had wanted Totally Hair REALLY SPECIFICALLY and getting a REAL Barbie was a BIG DEAL and basically my life was ruuuuuuined.

On the flip side, this seems very Billfold-appropriate, because once I was done wailing (and being told firmly that one does not complain about gifts), Totally Hair Barbie became the first thing I ever specifically saved up for and spent my own money on.
