With UKI offering the Uke-A-Doodle up as contest prize, I figured I'd do a little research on it.
Turns out the doodle was part of the foundation on which Mattel was built.

Check out this article from CNN:

Cool. But I refuse to believe that the average American girl owns 10 Barbies. I just don't see that as possible.

Lil Spoon had quite the collection and some of them are packed away in the Barbie roll away case. You'd be surprised at how many family members/friends would give them as gifts. That's where the BAS takes a hold of the lil gals. :biglaugh:

Remember how many average size families we have with 2.x kids, could be a lot of kids with 3-4 and all it takes is one horder with over a 100 to skew the average. Remember the 30 year old virgin and how many dolls he had...

How many Ukulele's do you suppose the average user has on this board? I'd bet at least 3....

Sounds like a good poll thread!

BTW- Talk about skewing averages, I have 6 brothers.
