Bihari Barbie

The Pioneer reports:
Gone are the days for slender body, waspish-waist, cone-shaped breast and Monalisa serenity modelled Barbie - indisputably the first and biggest choice for kids world over.

Here comes our own desi dude with white velvety classical coiffure, over grown hair-do and his very own Ruben's cherubism - Laluji draped in an over-sized starch white kurta and loosening pyjama, priced at Rs 144.

Laluji in his latest avatar has posed a serious challenge to Barbie in his own courtyard, Bihar but promising to give her a run for money and space wherever he goes in the country or outside.
Eeks. Think of the poor kids who get to play with Laluji instead of Barbie. Actually, if Laluji comes with the right accessories, it could be quite a cool toy. Like what, you ask. Like a battalion of toy cows. Such fun!
