So did you hear about this controversial Barbie doll?
Some Barbie designer (who are these people? Didn't make it in the real life fashion biz?) produced an inked/tattooed Barbie.
Don't be too worried about your impressionable girls getting a hold of one. They sold out quickly. According to reports the doll was produced for the adult collectors. Ok I understand collecting old Barbies but buying new ones as an adult? I have better uses for $50.
Sending the wrong message to young girls? Honestly if you worried about that type of thing why even let any type of Barbie doll in the house. I would be more worried about the "normal" Barbie giving my daughter the desire for a boob job. (IMHO a boob job is even a dumber idea than some ink job)
One possible advantage of this would be the lesson of watching the tattoo wear off with age. Now that lesson would take awhile unless you borrow my portable orbital sander.
Now from my experience with raising daughters (also noticed with granddaughter) the Barbies are most often found naked. At least the tattoo distracts you from the thought she has been running a nudist camp in the toy box.
|athletic Barbie - do you think her hair gets messed up?|
This was fun. I hope you enjoyed the trolls roasting Barbie as much as I did.
Oh, no word from Ken on this latest development.
Oh BTW, Lisleman is still collecting Left-over Laugh posts on his LLL#4. (please tell me why I am writing this in the third person??)
