What would Barbie's measurements be if she were a real woman ?

I heard the numbers once, but can't find them.

And what is the deal with Joe ?? Is he gay ?

    If scaled into real life proportions, she would be 5 feet, 9 inches, (1.75 m) measuring 36-18-33. According to research by the University Central Hospital in Helsinki, Finland, she would lack the requisite 17 to 22 percent of body fat required to menstruate.

    Barbie is a child's toy. Have you ever seen a real life girl that looks like a ragdoll? or a baby that looks like a cabbage patch kid?

    If barbie were a real person she would have to walk on her hands and knees because of her proportions.....

    Given that her male companion doll, Ken, is slightly taller than the Barbie doll, it would seem reasonable to assume a 'real-life' Barbie would be taller than the average. Given the dolls are American, we could reasonably assume Ken is over 6 ft. Lets us therefore assume Ken to be around 6 ft 6. This would make Barbie around 6 ft herself, which is admittedly tall for a woman, but not unusual for models for instance.

    Approximate measurements taken from a randomly sampled Barbie doll, were 29.5 cm tall, 13.5 cm bust, 8.5 cm waist and 12.5 cm hips. If we assume the 'real-life' Barbie to be 6 ft, then this gives a scale factor of approximately 2.44 inches/cm. This gives bust, waist and hip measurements of approximately 33, 20.75 and 30.5 inches, respectively.
