Full Answer

In addition to smaller measurements, Barbie's limbs are also longer than those of an average woman. Her legs are 50 percent longer than her arms. Her thighs measure 16 inches and her calves measure 11 inches. Her ankle is 6 inches, which would give her a shoe size of 3. These measurements would make it difficult for her to walk.
