Are you hesitant to buy your child a Barbie for fear of reinforcing negative stereotypes about women? Instructables user mikeasaurus had the same concerns, but found a clever way to empower kids by turning the iconic doll into an all-purpose multi-tool.
The hack isn’t terribly difficult to do yourself, especially if you’ve got a workshop full of tools at your disposal.

A strategically cut groove on the side of her body provides access to all the knife’s tools, while magnets hold her two halves together during more traditional playtime.
