"My whole life we couldn't afford a Barbie," Oprah said in an interview on "Good Morning America." She said Barbies were a far cry from the type of dolls she had as a child.

"I had actually a corn cob doll," she admitted.

"You go in the cornfield and you take the corn shucks and the golden hair, what was the silk of the corn and that's what we played with," she explained. "I started with a corn cob doll and then to have a full circle that there's a doll made in your image and the image of the character is pretty incredible actually."
