He-Man and Barbie vs. Evil Blankies and the Orange Dragon

Addie and I have had a running battle on whether Barbie was able to properly marry her Ken doll before He-Man beat him to it.  Just exactly how this running battle began will be explained another day. A few weeks ago Casey, Addie and Vivi left me in Indiana and traveled to Utah to visit family. A few days after they arrived in Utah, I began getting text messages through my wife’s cellphone from Addie. Having a text message conversation with a seven-year-old can only go so far.  To keep the text conversation interesting, I shifted the focus of the conversation to the battle between He-Man and Barbie and Evil Blankies and the Orange Dragon.

In order to understand the conversation, I must explain the characters in the story. Addie has three minky blankets—one red, one green, and one pink—that she calls blankies. Addie considers these blankies her dearest of friends and she will not go to sleep in Indiana without all of these blankies in her bed with her. Addie’s Barbie dolls are also characters in the story as well as her My Little Pony Dolls. Addie also has three Monster High Dolls that she absolutely loves and that she refuses to let me touch. Finally, as a kid I collected all of the He-Man figures and when I got too old for the figures, they were stored in my parent’s attic. They are now in my house and I have tried many times to convince Addie that they are in fact cool  Our cats, Wink and Percy, will be playing the parts of the dragons.

I can only imagine what Addie was picturing in her head when the story began. Here is a slideshow of what she could have possibly been imagining as the story progressed:

  • Addie’s Barbies 1 of 25
    Addie's Barbies
    Just as in Toy Story, Addie's Barbies come to life while she is away. Here they are sitting around doing what Barbies do.
  • Barbie Ken 2 of 25
    Barbie Ken
    I keep telling Addie that Ken is a bit of a weirdo and that Barbies would be better off with He-Man figures as male friends. Here is Ken playing with a green mouse on a spring.
  • The Gray Dragon 3 of 25
    The Gray Dragon
    "Addie, Barbies were hanging out when the gray dragon, Percy, attacked them without any warning."
  • The Gray Dragon 4 of 25
    The Gray Dragon
    "The gray dragon, Percy, tried to take doctor Barbie hostage after the attack."
  • The Gray Dragon 5 of 25
    The Gray Dragon
    "Doctor Barbie was able to escape while the gray dragon, Percy, tried to groom her."
  • He-Men 6 of 25
    He-Men
    Just as Barbie comes to life and hangs out while Addie is away, the He-Man figures also come to life and stand ready for battle.
  • He-Man 7 of 25
    He-Man
    For purposes of this story, this purple lizard like figure will play the part of He-Man since Addie hid the real He-Man figure to keep me from placing him with her Barbies whenever she is gone.
  • He-Man and Barbie 8 of 25
    He-Man and Barbie
    "He-Man heard about the attack and approached Barbie to form an alliance."
  • He-Man and Barbie 9 of 25
    He-Man and Barbie
    "He-Man agreed to help Barbie defeat the gray dragon, Percy, if the Barbies agreed to marry the He-Man figures."
  • Mr. and Mrs. He-Man 10 of 25
    Mr. and Mrs. He-Man
    "The Barbies agreed to marry the He-Man figures and He-Man will now protect Barbies from the gray dragon."
  • He-Men and Their Noble Steeds 11 of 25
    He-Men and Their Noble Steeds
    "The He-Man figures got their noble steeds, the Pretty Ponies, and road to battle against the gray dragon, Percy."
  • He-Men and Their Noble Steeds 12 of 25
    He-Men and Their Noble Steeds
    In my mind, He-Man had to have given the other He-Man figures the Braveheart speech before going into battle.
  • He-Man and the Gray Dragon 13 of 25
    He-Man and the Gray Dragon
    "The He-Man figures road their noble steeds, the Pretty Ponies, to battle against the gray dragon, Percy, and Percy fled."
  • The Gray Dragon, Percy 14 of 25
    The Gray Dragon, Percy
    "The He-Man figures were able to capture the gray dragon, Percy, and they slew him and threw him in the green garbage can."
  • Evil Blankies 15 of 25
    Evil Blankies
    "While the Barbies and He-Man figures were celebrating, evil blankies sneaked up on them and attacked them from behind."
  • The Orange Dragon, Wink 16 of 25
    The Orange Dragon, Wink
    "While the evil blankies were attacking, the orange dragon, Wink, attacked Ken and the rest of the Barbies."
  • The Orange Dragon, Wink 17 of 25
    The Orange Dragon, Wink
    "The orange dragon, Wink, was able to defeat the He-Man figures."
  • Ken and the Orange Dragon, Wink 18 of 25
    Ken and the Orange Dragon, Wink
    "The Orange Dragon, Wink, killed Ken and buried him in the dragon's litter box."
  • Monster High Dolls 19 of 25
    Monster High Dolls
    "Addie, He-Man needs you to mail him your Monster High Dolls, he said that is their only chance of defeating evil blankies and the orange dragon, Wink."
  • The Orange Dragon, Wink 20 of 25
    The Orange Dragon, Wink
    "Addie, because you refused to mail your Monster High Dolls, evil blankies and the orange dragon, Wink, attacked the Barbies again."
  • Doctor Barbie 21 of 25
    Doctor Barbie
    "The orange dragon, Wink, took Doctor Barbie hostage and is holding her in his litter box. You have to mail your Monster High Dolls to He-Man in order to save Doctor Barbie."
  • Bathtub 22 of 25
    Bathtub
    At this point, Addie dropped my wife's cellphone in the bathtub and all texting ended.
  • He-Man 23 of 25
    He-Man
    No He-Man figures were harmed in the making of this story, except this one.
  • He-Man 24 of 25
    He-Man
    . . . and this one . . .
  • He-Man 25 of 25
    He-Man
    . . . and this one.
