Barbie Bratz Smackdown

Bratz creator and Mattel duke it out in court. What would happen if Bratz and Barbie came to blows?

How can we expect our kids to play nice when the adults are getting into a squabble over dolls? Mattel--maker of Barbie, America's plastic sweetheart--is claiming the creator of Bratz came up with the idea while employed at Barbie headquarters. Arguments are already being heard in federal court and things could get ugly. Who do you think would win in a rumble?

I don’t want my daugter to play with either because it sets a bad example of what people are suppose to look like. Has anyone ever heard of Clark’s dolls? If not you should look it up.

Bratz would whoop Barb’s butt and you know it, Barb has been in the Penthouse too long and wouldn’t even know how to scrap like a street-wize Bratz. That said, I think they’re both a lost cause. I played with Tonka’s and mud as a kid, and my sexual orientation is straight in case you’re a pervert and wondering. I think kids are getting beyond cars and dolls at age 4 and headed into the Cyber-playground. Focus your energies on keeping kids safe from predators online and “trying” to get them into the sun, that last one is a battle though.

I must agree,both do set bad examples, but you need to look beyond that. they are both equaly as fun to blow up with fouth of july fire works or throw in a bond fire. they are both plastic on the inside, like how every one is near same on the inside.

Thank God Barbie won this! Guess street smarts only get you so far, huh Bratz?
First off in comparison to Bratz, Barbie looks like a classy and eloquent lady. Bratz dolls are in reality mini whores harboring the toy shelves. This is not what I would ever want my daughter playing with. They claim Barbie’s body is unrealistic, have you seen a Brat doll? With a huge (and I mean huge) head, lips that look like it’s been under extreme collagen usage, “doe-eyed” look that stretches their eyes way past normalcy, and an incredibly tiny waist (especially in comparison to their approx. shoe size 14 or so) So who’s really urealistic? I’d like to say that no matter what, it’ll take a helluva fight to bring a forty-year-old-and-counting empire down, especially when Mr.Bryant decided to play them and secretly work with MGA while he was still employed at Mattel. Like it was said in court, “there’s a right way and a wrong way to compete. and MGA has crossed that line.” Congrats, Barbie!

Good Afternoon!!! is one of the best informational websites of its kind. I take advantage of reading it every day. All the best.

the name alone doesn’t even sound right do you really think your kid should be encouraged on the thought that being a brat is ok and on top of that at least barbie is all cheezy smiles bratz dont even look nice who wants to play with a doll that looks like she’s pmsing all the time

This is pathetic. Mattel cant except that bratz are better and more fashionable than barbie.! Their Is nothing to blame that bratz are a bad influence. Their just dolls and Mattel is just jelouse and should die and burn in hell. Nobody said that bratz dolls aren’t for little girls. if the parents think that bratz are bad, then they shouldn’t be buying them in the first place!!
