Storyboard Text

  • A barbie doll (with beautiful facial features) is left inside the attic full of cobwebs. She feels lonely and abandoned. She wants to be played with again...
  • The child puts the Barbies in the attic and doesn´t play with them anymore. She puts them away in the attic and leaves them there for good. ¨Bye, bye Barbies!¨
  • ¨Bye, bye Barbies!! I love you and will miss you, one day maybe my children will play with you and I will keep you for always!!¨
  • Mali Bu (the Barbie) in the attic, plays with her little sisters, shops, and hangs out with friends and boyfriend Ken in the dreamhouse!! She always smells the dusty, old furniture, and the stench from rats that roam through the attic at night. She and her family always huddle up for the night in fright that the rat might chose them for a night snack.
  • ¨Shopping, shopping, shopping, shopping, shopping, shopping, shopping, shopping, and more shopping!!¨
  • Exposition
  • She smells the stench of dusty, old, dirty, rough, and moldy smells floating around her as if it were aroma therapy and an epidemic spread. She felt lonely. She felt scared.
  • Conflict/Rising Action
  • 20 years later, Mali Bu and her family are brightened by the attic door opening ,and a little girl with wanting hands, calls out, ¨Mommy!¨ She is adorable, she is amazing. ¨She will play with me again!¨ Mali Bu exclaimed as soon as the little girl left the attic to go tell her mommy.
  • "Mommy, TOYS!!" Chelsea screamed in joy!!
  • Rising Action
  • The child that once held me in her arms every night was now grown up. Her baby looked just like her when she was little. I guess that this will carry on forever, unless, I don´t know. Bye for now, I have to go back to being pla-¨Toys!!¨
