I love Barbies. Well, at least I did. I grew up on Barbies. They were cute, they had ambition, they were every little girl's dream. Now they are a nightmare.
What happened to the good wholesome Barbies that we all know and love?
Fashionable, but tasteful
A Role Model, a doll with purpose!
Nowadays, the Barbies are much more revealing, and on the border of promiscuous.
The new Barbie line called "fashion fever"
Notice here how the doll is wearing the shirt off of her shoulders. Now when the child gets the matching kid shirt, how do you think she'll wear it?
Even their faeries (don't get me started how Barbie has drifted into the fantasy realm and hasn't left!) look like they are anorexic!!!!
How in the world are we supposed to build up girls to have good self esteem, a sense of worth, and just plain common sense when they are playing with dolls that wear and look no where near how we'd want our girls to look and wear things (I'd loosely call them clothes) that i at least know MY CHILD IS NO WAY IN THE WORLD GONNA WEAR!
Whoooo! I'm just infuriated over this. Lord, please help our children grow up to be wholesome, righteous, and have a good head on their shoulders.
