Oh I don't know... barbie parts are pretty cool, too.
I have a funny story about plastic babies. I get them from this store called Greetings that sells cards and jewelry and candles and little toys. Anyway I was in there and saw the bin of plastic babies by the register.
Me: Oh good, I was almost out of these.
Cashier (instantly dreamy/giddy): Oh.... are you expecting?
Me: No, I just need some plastic babies.
Cashier: Are you having a baby shower for someone?
Me: No. I was just out at home, and needed to stock up.
Cashier: Well what do you use them for?
Me: Um... I make pins out of them. I heat up a safety pin and push it through their head.
(I show her the one on my backpack)
Cashier (looking confused, but trying to understand): Is that some kind of fertility fetish?
Me (shocked): God, I hope not!
She finishes ringing up the sale, but is still clearly unhappy about the direction the conversation took. For my part I am now worried that plastic babies might somehow bring on conception....
