Wheelchair Becky, Friend of Barbie

Wheelchair Becky, Friend of Barbie | Design for All | Scoop.it
Blast from the past: Share a Smile Becky was a wheelchair-using Barbie brand doll produced by Mattel back in the '90s. 

In a case of toy imitating life, the original doll’s wheelchair didn’t fit through the door of the Barbie Dream House, and her long blond locks were a problem – they easily got caught in her wheelchair wheels. In addition, her initial “Wheelchair Becky” moniker painted her as sort of one-note. So the people at Mattel did some rejigging and reintroduced her as “Share a Smile Becky,” with a smaller wheelchair and shorter hair. The new and improved first issue of the dolls flew off the shelves, selling out in two weeks.

You think Barbie has it hard, trapped in her anatomically impossible body. Spare a thought for "Share a Smile Becky": "In a case of toy imitating life, the original doll’s wheelchair didn’t fit through the door of the Barbie Dream House"
