Is Barbie banned at your house?

Posted by   + Show Post

I posted this picture of my newbie on facebook and I got a message pleading that I do my research on barbie.. barbie gives women and men unrealistic expectations of women.... -.-



are you FREKING kidding me?


Barbie never hurt anyone. SHE IS A DOLL. I played with barbie no body issues here. My grandma had a HUGE barbie collection so I got barbie everything as a kid. Did not scar me one bit.  I unfriended them. It was an old acquaintances Mother who sent me the message. I couldn't help but laugh. My daughter is almost 7 weeks old and has 20+ new in box barbies from my grandmothers collection that I saved plus my entire childhood collection ( yep those were saved too).  I am so pumped to be able to look at new barbie stuff too  when the time comes.

I grew up with barbies 0 problems with human expectation.

I mean, if DS wanted one I'd get him one. He has some dolls.

My daughter plays with barbies all the time.  I wonder how you have any fun at all with a barbie in a box.

Well when my daughter is old enough she can open them. My grandma collected them so growing up it was tough not being able to play with all of them. Most of the time grandma bought two though, one for me and one for her room so I had a bunch of opened ones to play with at her house too. Plus I got a ton for every holiday. Barbies EVERYWHERE!
