LIANE HANSEN, host:

Barbie turns 50 years old in March. So, when Scott fills in for me next Sunday, he'll be bringing an entourage of dolls for a special segment. Barbie has been reinvented so many times - disco, Malibu, astronaut, Star Trek Barbie. We want you to send in photos of your cherished or modified Barbie dolls.

Feel free to pose her wherever you are - whether under the St. Louis Arch, or skiing in Vail, or serving a plate of pot roast at the dinner table. To find out how, visit our blog npr.org/soapbox.
