When Ree Drummond first saw the doll Barbie had created to depict the Pioneer Woman, she sent it back.
The doll was wearing jeans, sneakers and a t-shirt. Anyone who watches Pioneer Woman on the Food Network knows Ree ALWAYS wears flowing tops while cooking up food for hungry cowboys on the ranch. The red-headed Barbie got a makeover and now wear boots and a loose-fitting floral top.
Sold exclusively at Walmart the Barbie playset includes the doll and dozens of accessories, including a toaster that pops up “toast” and a spinning mixer.
Two other accessory sets that are sold separately include a pasta and barbecue set.
The doll itself doesn’t look a whole lot like The Pioneer Woman. Even Ree acknowledges this. But her favorite item in the playset is a simple, black, cast-iron skillet.
“The cast-iron skillet makes me smile, because you have this bright, colorful kitchen and a black skillet,” she told Delish. “Everything may change, but a cast-iron skillet will never change.”
