March 7, 2003 — Here comes Barbie for the blue-hair and walker
The Grandma and Grandpa dolls are the mother and father of
Barbie’s best friend, Midge, who is now pregnant with her second child, toy
manufacturer Mattel has announced.
They have streaks of gray hair and wear sensible clothes –
a wool sweater for granddad and a floral blouse for granny – but at just 111/2
inches tall, they still look pretty perky for their advanced years.
