Quarantine a lot of people, and even a Barbie doll, if she had sat on it for a couple of months, would have lost its former perfection and gained a few pounds of dolls. Blogger Tonya Ruiz wanted to show what it would look like, so she created special quarantine kits for Barbie. That’s what came out of it:
