Letter to Mattel Re: Kelly’s Welfare and Whereabouts

It was recently suggested to me that my September investigation into the fate of Barbie’s youngest sister Kelly was lacking in one crucial element: going straight to the source, that being Mattel. As such, I thought it appropriate to pen an aptly deranged-sounding letter to the company and wait for an answer. The letter is as follows.

Mattel Canada Inc.

6155 Freemont Boulevard
Mississauga, Ontario

To Whom It May Concern:
         I am writing to you in the hopes that you might be able to answer a Barbie related question which has preoccupied me for quite some time. When I was a little girl, Barbie had three younger sisters: Skipper, Stacie and Kelly. However, I noticed recently that Kelly no longer exists, and has instead been “replaced” by Chelsea.
         Despite my best internet research, I could find no explanation as to what actually happened to Kelly, and so I thought it best to go straight to the source. Is Kelly okay? Did she move away with Ken when he and Barbie split up? Are she and Chelsea twins who were separated at birth?
Any answer you can offer as to Kelly’s disappearance would be greatly appreciated, as it seems rather odd to me that she should just simply be replaced without any sort of logical explanation.
I hope all is well with her.
Sincere thanks,

Stay tuned, dear readers. Our answer awaits us.
