Tokidoki Barbie comes with tattoos, a black top with the Tokidoki logo of heart and cross bones, pink mini-dress and leopard skin leggings, all topped off by a head of pink doll hair and a cutesy pet. Other goodies from the limited Tokidoki Barbie collection includes tops, hoodies, jewelry, totes, and of course skateboard decks.
