Did you ever play paper dolls when you were little? I seem to have completely missed that part of girlhood, which may explain my reaction to them now. SQUEEE!
But this Hillary Clinton Presidential Playset gets a double SQUEEE for girl power.
Not only can you give Hilary any one of several outfits or expressions--I'm partial to "BADASS"--the set also includes other friends and enemies for your imagined conversation fun.
I am, of course, partial to RBG.
Hillary: That's a badass lace collar, Ruth.
RBG: Hell yeah, Meryl made it for me. She should win all of her cases, because she's so awesome at "knitting" together good arguments!
Amidst the living paper dolls--RBG, Clarence Thomas, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, and, of course, Bill--there are also some delightful ghosts and backdrops--George Washington, Jackie O, the White House, the Oval Office.
(Hey there, ghost of Jackie O! Let's all four of us go have lunch sometime. Maybe at the White House?)
While these would be a great funny gift for an adult with the right sense of humor, the whole set really has me racking my brains for a politically-interested girl of the right age to stuff it into a stocking for.
But perhaps I should count my blessings on that one--if I knew a kid who might like these, then I might have to give them up!
