Ever since “Barbie” came out, there’s been a trend on TikTok of adults filming themselves picking out and buying Barbie dolls . . . for themselves.
It’s basically for emotional support and to fulfill their inner child.
People are also buying them for loved ones who might not have had one as a kid.
According to a psychology professor, this is a GOOD thing and can have positive mental health effects. They say it can prevent depression and build optimism and confidence.
