  • I don't have a little girl yet (hopefully this one is won't find out for 4 more weeks) but when and if I do have one I will let her. I keep walking by the barbie aisle crying (lol i am so emotional right) I just can't wait to have a little girl to play barbies with they have gotten so much better then when we were little lol.

  • She doesn't but I wouldn't stop her from playing with them, since I did growing up. I just wouldn't let her play with Bratz dolls. HELL NO!

  • Sure. My girls have tons of Barbies and Bratz and other dolls. They have so many I can't even count them. My son has been known to play with them, too, when there's nothing else to do. But he usually makes them beat each other up, lol.

  • There's a Children's Museum in our city with this huge temporary exhibit on Barbie. So 6 months ago, I would have said no way, and now both my 3 year-old and (even more so!) my 21 month old LOVE barbies. They also call all mannequins barbies, too, because there are life-sized ones in the exhibit. Anyway, it's one of those battles that didn't seem worthwhile. I'm learning that there are more of those than I thought (Disney princess, too, ugh)... Bratz, on the other hand, no way...
