This is Mars Explorer Barbie. She's an astronaut. In pink. With a bubble helmet and trashcan backpack. It looks like she did her makeup too. That's good, it's important to make a good first impression on the nothingness that exists on Mars. LOOK BARBIE -- OVER THERE! *trying to wrestle off pink space boots*
Thanks to Jaclyn, who agrees Mattel should have started with Moon Explorer Barbie and worked their way up from there.
