After reading a comment on the post about Riley playing in my wheelchair I started Googling "wheelchair toys". Fun stuff and good articles abounded. While wading through them I remembered that I had written about Share a Smile Becky (I think they should have named her Barbie on wheels).
Turns out after Googling myself and pulling up my old blog that I had posted a link to another blog post on Barbie's differently abled friend.
Enjoy! It still made me laugh until I cried.

Michael: You know, when I wrote the blurbs on the back of the package, they cut out a lot. They thought my ideas were too bold and exciting for little girls. I think my idea that she could actually wheel her way through time in her interstellar beckyship was brilliant. The aliens from planet metaltron wanted to take her prisoner, but their phase beams were deflected by the holographic shields on each side. Unfortunately, at the end it turns out Becky is a double agent working for the aliens and that's why Barbie had to have her assasinated. Of course, it had to be treated carefully so that the aliens wouldn't see it as an act of interstellar war. So that part was written only on the inside of the padding on the seat. 3 years ago
