Ok, let me preface this with I am not an expert on Barbie in any way. I know, shocking. The only time I've bought a Barbie doll was to donate it for kids at Christmas.
But I had NO idea that Barbie had a last name, AND SIBLINGS!!!! I don't know why, but I thought the Barbie world was made up of just Barbie and Ken, and maybe some friends, and their dream house and cars lol.
It seems I'm not the only one that thought that!!
For #SiblingsDay last week, the official Barbie twitter account tweeted out a picture with the caption:
Happy #SiblingsDay, from the Roberts sisters!
And people are losing their minds!!!!!
WHO KNEW BARBIE'S LAST NAME WAS 'ROBERTS'???
