Barbie doll and her boyfriend in the Soviet period

As you can see from the photos, Barbie and her boyfriend are hanging out in a communal apartment sporting garb straight out of 80s Russia. Ken is looking fairly stern, it must be said, as he sits at a table complete with vodka, cigarettes, and a Pravda newspaper…maybe he’s unhappy about living with Barbie’s mum, who is doing the washing up.
