Barbie dolls have been a childhood favourite for generations of girls who staged elaborate events around her. Now, an Instagram user (@tiff_thebarbie) is re-imagining the life of Tiff, a Barbie doll. But this time around, she is a hipster, millennial mother who battles sleep deprivation, has mother-daughter days, goes camping with family, and potty trains her child.
Sounds unglamorous? It only reflects the real-life trials of modern-day mothers. The Instagram page is hugely popular and boasts of 86.2k followers. Like other millennial mothers on the social media platform, Tiff also made a surprise announcement on May 19 revealing that she is pregnant with her second child, complete with a sonogram-on-her-belly moment and baby bump updates. It was followed by a video revealing the gender of the child.
Don't worry it's just my pregnancy "cravings" 😉 My eating schedule has changed to this 💁🏼 pre-breakfast, breakfast, brunch, pre-lunch, lunch, snack time, snack time, pre-dinner, dinner, dessert, dessert and more dessert 🤤this is how I'm spending the rest in the night btw !! Yumm !! 🤰🏼 🤰🏼 🤰🏼 🤰🏼 🤰🏼 #motherhoodsimplified#aheadofthecurve#uniteininmotherhood#letthekids#momsofinstagram#momlife#cravings#pregnant#pregnancy#babybump#momtobe#pregnantlife#preggoproblems#preggocravings#cheatday#lays#boba#momblogger#babynumber2
The creator prefers to remain anonymous, but explained the reason behind the series: “I wanted to create a picture-perfect life with Barbie. When I started the account I wasn’t planning to give her such a fun life or family, I just kept getting ideas along the way!”
A typical shot takes around half an hour to stage, with another hour devoted to shooting and editing. Her favourite shots are of a visibly pregnant Tiff binge-eating Doritos.
Here are some more photos from the series:
