See What It Looks Like When Barbie Becomes A Hoarder


Now that Barbie is working about 16 jobs at once (everything from princess to zoo doctor!), her life has gotten a little out of control. As a modern woman, it's hard for her to keep things neat and tidy on the home front—and who can blame her? That Malibu Dreamhouse is not gonna clean itself.
