Genie Barbies, Toys, Costumes and Collectibles
Genie Toys, Collectibles, and Costumes Feed our Imagination and Need for a Magic Friend
Wouldn’t you love to have a magic genie that could grant your every wish? The idea of a magic genie, also called “jinn” has been around for a very long time. The myth has ancient Arabian roots, and jinn have not always been good by any means. They are actually demons, and quite often have worked as tricksters in their relationships to people, or even had malevolent purposes. Jinn can be good, evil or neutral.
Jinn are known for their free will. The idea of a genie in a bottle that you can command came about with the tale of Aladdin, who came upon a genie in a bottle that contained a genie that had been chained somehow into doing the bidding of the owner of the bottle. And for transportation – genies have the magic carpet.
It is the idea of a strong, powerful slave that is appealing to us of course, not realizing that jinn are really imps at their nature. Genie’s are a powerful and popular motif: and it is fun to find genie toys – including Barbies, collectibles and fun Halloween costumes that express the genie we all wish we had at our disposal.
Barbie, and even Ken love to get their genie on! I love that the first Ken will turn from a pirate to a genie.
