  • I dont like Barbies because the heads keep coming off & the clothes are hard to put on. Other then that, I dont really have an "issue" with them. Oh...and I hate those tiny shoes. Keep getting caught in the vacuum.

  • If I wouldn't look like I creep I would probably still be playing with Barbie or at least collecting them. I think I was still doing my babies hair at 15.

  • I never liked Barbie. I'm not sure why, I just didn't. I'm not all "Death to Barbie!" or anything, but it's just not my cup of tea.

  • There have been psychological research studies indicative of the development of body dysmorphic disorder in women. Similar studies have also been conducted recently for men developing body dysmorphic disorder by playing with ultra muscular action figures.

  • I played w/ barbie as a kid. I later had an eating disorder. I seriously doubt its due to barbie! I didnt care what she looked like. I just liked putting clothes on dolls. i also played w/ baby dolls. it didnt make me want to get pregnant as a teen!
