French Door Barbie...

Lets look at that beacon of American culture...The Barbie Doll.

As you can see, the Barbie is now packed with a french door refrigerator instead of a side by side. The fine folk at Hasbro have astutely packed the more popular refrigerator.

Here's why French doors are more popular than side by sides:

1. French doors allow for better lateral storage
2. More refrigeration space/less freezer space
3. Refrigerator at waist level...no bending
4. Newer and "cooler"(perception is everything)look


  1. Hi Steve!

    Great catch! To follow fashion trends, who knew I just needed to keep up with Barbie. ;-)

    P.S. - I'm looking at replacing appliances in a rental property and I'm looking at the Bosch 300 series in SS. I thought it would be a nice, relatively inexpensive upgrade. But, I haven't been able to find any reviews on the gas range. I was wondering if you had an opinion on it? Repair history? Quality etc? Or should I opt for Whirlpool Gold Appliances?

    The range is: 300 Series Evolution Gas Range Stainless Steel HGS3053UC.


  2. Jon,

    The Bosch is really Frigidaire with Bosch styling. That being said, I still like the unit in a package. Other brands to consider would be Frigidaire and GE...Not much of a Whirlpool Gold guy, I like their laundry, not their stoves

    Good luck,


  3. Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the advice! I picked up some good deals today on the Bosch 300 series. I didn't know that Frigidaire was making the Bosch gas stoves. I prefer the Bosch styling.


  4. Excellent read. I like your style...have a good one!/Nice blog! Keep it up!
