Olympic Special – 2000 Olympic Swimmer

5 Aug

Its come to my attention that the Olympics are on again. And surprise surprise, Team GB are doing pretty well – we tuned in last night just in time to watch Farah win the 10,000 meters, bless him.

I haven’t gone for a 2012 Olympic Barbie (I Can Be Track Star, Tennis Player, Gymnast). I haven’t decided whether or not to bother as I like them but sports dolls aren’t my usual thing. I do have one sports doll, an Olympic Swimmer from 2000. Apparently she really does swim in water when her mechanism is wound up by the key on her back, although I have never tried this. I love her pretty, understated Asha face and her little black bob, but she is irritatingly stiff-limbed. Here she is with one of my son’s Olympic Team GB rubber ducks. You will notice that the duck got her Gold medal, though.
