Not everyone has the body of Barbie - especially three of her cousins that failed to develop from the neck down and are now sold at Dollar Tree for $1 each.

Rather than becoming sexualized toys, these three brainless choking hazards decided early in life to become glam pincushions for their craftin' friends.

After minimal brain surgery (i.e. using an exacto to remove the scalp close to the hairline), a foam ball (sold 8 to a package for $1) is wrapped with scrap yarn and then hot glued into the braincase to give these gals a purpose in life.

With a cranium packed with foam and yarn, these beauties can no longer be called airheads and instead are eager to handle the most mundane (but essential!) sewing task!

Thanks for the Cheesy feedback!

(My niece doesn't sew but does find hers handy for both voodoo and stress relief at work!)
