Did Barbie Get Implants?!

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Barbie isn't usually synonymous with modesty; you can typically catch the plastic icon gallivanting around her Dream House in short shorts and tight shirts -- often with her paramour, Ken, in tow. We've come to accept her outrageously proportioned body and irrationally small feet. But now there's a new Barbie in town -- and her plunging neckline has some moms' panties in a twist. 


Each doll in the "Barbie Basic Collection" -- the latest to hit stores -- is dressed in that essential fashion statement, the little black dress. The doll that's creating the stir is the African-American doll in the series. Some moms believe that the busty Barbie has cleavage that mimics that of women with breast implants.

One mom questioned Mattel's new doll on a local news show. "What parent would buy this for their kid?" she asked. "Is that really an appropriate image you want to display for your young daughter?" 

So far, there has not been a recall of the doll, and Mattel has kept silent. But you don't have to! What do YOU think? Should this Barbie cover up?

Re: The person who created the remark that this was an excellent internet site actually needs to have their brain evaluated.

Jesus Christ there is a great deal of spammy feedback on this site. Have you at any time believed about attempting to remove them or installing a wordpress plugin?

Have you considered adding a few social bookmarking links to these blogs. At least for flickr.

I had been wondering if you ever thought of adjusting the page layout of your site? It is well written; I love what youve got to state. But maybe you could include a little more in the way of content so people might connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two photos. Maybe you can space it out better?

Just to let you know your web site appears a little bit different in Firefox on my computer with Linux .

I have got one suggestion for your webpage. It appears like at this time there are a handful of cascading stylesheet problems while opening a number of web pages within google chrome and safari. It is working alright in internet explorer. Perhaps you can double check this.
