2Pregnant Barbie

Possibly one of the most bizarre Barbies - ever - there's even a magnetic stomach that you put over the hole, until you are ready to act out scenes of labour or whatever children do with pregnant Barbies. On a similar note, the JumpOff have teamed up with the ‘Want Respect' campaign, aimed at targeting sexually active teens in England and cutting pregnancy rates amongst the young.

After hours of hard work gathering carts at the Honk & Holler and waitressing at the elegant Bowlarama, she still finds time to spend quality time with her kids. With seven children and one on the way, she recently won the Mother of the Year Award from the Pink Flamingo Trailer Park Homeowners Association! This special trophy sits proudly on the kitchen window sill in her luxurious double-wide next to her six first place Little Miss Guzzler Awards from the county fair! Yes, this honey has grown up! She's got a bun in the oven and she's ready to hit the town!

The Edward doll is true to the Twilight saga with his vampire features, like shimmering skin and signature gold-colored eyes. The dolls are sold separately and are currently available at Toys ‘R Us.

11Amy Winehouse Barbie

We've seen celebrity dolls used as narcissist promotional tools, but not often do we see memorabilia that accentuates a star's less appealing attributes. This Amy Winehouse Barbie has a lot of similarity with the real UK crooner, complete with black, messy beehive hair style, tattoos and dramatically winged eye liner which has been smudged by her tears.

12Barbie's wheelchair-bound friend

In May 1997, Mattel introduced Barbie's wheelchair-bound friend Becky. But the initiative came under fire when a teenager with cerebral palsy pointed out that the doll's wheelchair did not fit into the elevator in Barbie's house.
