    The inevitable: Yoga Teacher Barbie

    Barbie dolls: maligned for their tyranny of impossible
    proportions, yet beloved by many, these
    ubiquitous icons of American culture have reflected the popular Zeitgeist for
    decades
    . When first created, the dolls sported demure fashions with their
    eyes glancing sideways in a gesture of deference. In 1971, the eyes were
    adjusted to look forwards, mirroring an increasingly direct female populace. In
    2009, “Totally Tattoos Barbie” launched to the outcry of parents and experts.
    And now, as part of a line of Barbies exclusive to Target stores, Yoga
    Teacher Barbie
    has launched, reflecting the massive recent increase in yoga
    practice in the US population.
