She’s edgy — with pink hair, sky-high stilettos and a cactus-covered pet named “Bastardino.”

I hear some people are upset about this. I must say I thought it was a lot of fun, particularly with the hair and the cactus-dog.

That's because most people are wound too tight. Your child would have to be of a certain age in order for this to encourage and then therefore cause them to go get a tattoo. And, if they're old enough to go and get a tattoo on their own, then I'd be more concerned that they were still playing with and being influenced by damn Barbie dolls at 16+ years of age.

Personally, I bet this doll is bought by collectors, not kids. It's a limited edition, and probably costs meaningfully more than a regular Barbie.

Parents were upset a couple of years ago when Mattel produced Butterfly Art Barbie. They were pulled off the shelves a few months later. I thought to get one before they disappeared. This doll could vanish in the same way or kids will finally tell parents this doll isnt that big of a deal.

I loved Barbie as a kid.

But of all the things to be upset about Barbie with, tattoos is what gets parents up in arms.

They didn't seem to mind when Barbie said "Math is hard"

Actually they did. The doll was pulled off the shelves in short order.

They were pulled off the shelves because women's activists decided to play a joke on manufacturers and switch the voices for Barbie and GI Joe. People got up in arms when GI Joe said "math is hard." And the point was made..

But even that isn't a complete reason to be "up and arms" about Barbie.

Barbie's got a new body

http://time.com/barbie-new-body-cover-story/

Quote:
Barbie’s got a new body. Three new bodies, actually: petite, tall and curvy, in Mattel’s exhaustively debated lexicon, and beginning Jan. 28 they will be sold alongside the original busty, thin-waisted form on Barbie.com.

It's interesting to watch what Mattel is doing with the Barbie brand. The new inclusive commercial that went viral, and now the introduction of other body types.

While there are things that concern me about Barbie, there are good things about her prevalence and iconic presence in the marketplace as well.

This new Barbie is awesome.

Barbie's first hijab: Meet the new Ibtihaj Muhammad doll

http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/13/news/barbie-hijab-ibtihaj-muhammad/index.html

Quote:
The Shero line, which launched in 2015, includes dolls based on prominent women such as Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas, model Ashley Graham, ballerina Misty Copeland, director Ava DuVernay and actress Zendaya.
In 2016, Barbie rolled out tall, petite and curvy versions of the dolls.

I was wondering why this thread was dug out of mothballs. This Barbie is a nice addition to the Shero line. And yes, I still have the butterfly art Barbie (Christie, actually). In fact, she's right in front of me. (WNBA Christie is to my immediate left.)

I will never buy a tattooed Barbie. I am not a fan of tattoos.
