Dad Customizes Barbie and Ken Into Labyrinth Dolls for 7 Year-Old Daughter

Most of us have, at some point or another, wanted to own movie-based toys that don’t actually exist yet. The entire reason some companies like Funko even exist is to capitalize on that. But when one seven year-old girl wanted dolls based on the dance scene in Labyrinth, her dad went out and customized them.

Now, typically customs don’t last super-long when played with, and going by what my wife tells me, Barbies can get more abused than Jennifer Connelly in Requiem for a Dream. But as with any toy you give your kids, it’s the joy on their faces when they first get them that counts most, and this girl has a Nerd Father of the Year candidate in her life.

Check out the full creation of the Labyrinth dolls on his imgur page. Then, the next time you have an argument with your parents, you can show them this and tell them they are inadequate.
