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!

What a great idea! I think my girls would play with them as is, instead of being pin-cushions. Great job!

I love these so much that I ran out to the dollar store and bought 3! My sister and her 2 daughters all sew. My youngest niece is a tattoo artist and has different colored hair each month. She has lots of piercings and tattoos too. The one I made for her, I used rub ons for her "tattoos". Here are my versions...
