Zombie Attack Barbie!

From the 1950s onwards girls were encouraged to hone their zombie slaughtering skills in preparation for the inevitable apocalypse. Though young ladies dispose of the undead with ease today, toys such as Mattel’s 1962 ‘Zombie Attack Barbie’ were instrumental in helping to habituate girls to a new social norm where zombie disposal would become a very necessary life skill.

Now a collectors item ‘Zombie Attack Barbie’ played a salient role in ensuring the survival of countless young girls who grew up ready and willing to slaughter the zombie menace. This much loved toy still holds fond memories for so many of the lovely ladies from our Zombie Clearance Squads today.

She’s now ready to defend herself and maybe another person. She’s got GRENADES, and I think she’ll use them. I wish I could get my first and only Barbie, with camo, though it’s pink, bazookas and launcher and A BERET! Pink. Then there’s Ken. A piece of festering, smelly, garbage who’s been waiting to take a bite out of Barbie (and possibly any other woman he could get his greedy, vermin-infected fingers on.

  1. Wow, I wonder if I could bring this doll to, and I use the word loosely life. Just gotta find me a few 12 inch G.I. Joe action figures.

  2. What’s that in the case to the bottom right? Damned if those
    don’t look like nuclear detonators from the movie “Silent Running”
    Watch the last part on Utube and doublecheck me!
    Is the Corvette with Minigun not included? Drat.
