She went on Craigslist where, lo and behold, that holy grail of childhood toys was for sale: a pink Barbie Jeep (and at only $60, a steal).

She purchased the toy car, which can go up to 5 miles per hour, and can be seen cruising around town in it, to and from class. It's an interesting way to get around not having her license. Let's just hope that she's not having too much fun to learn her lesson about driving under the influence.
