Do you let your children play with these dolls?

Posted by   + Show Post

Would you let your sons or daughter play with these types of dolls? 

#barbie brands-barbie

Do you think these types of dolls are hurting our children's self image?

Bratz Dolls

 Do you think the dolls geared towards our children are meant to lead them in the direction of a certain career path?

My Dh HATES barbies- except the one that's tattooed (and a collectors item/ impossible to get). He says they teach girls to be spoiled sluts with eating disorders. O.o a little extreme I think.. haha

We have a son- no dolls yet. He's 11mo and has no interest in them atm

My daughter (now 10) has never been interested in those type of dolls--including Barbies!  She's always preferred baby dolls and has now branched out into American Girl dolls, too.

Quoting VintageWife:

Barbie and GI Joe, yes. The ones in the middle, no.

I like all Barbies including the tattoed. How would tattoos on a person change the slut status? Barbie is a slut until she gets tattoos? Nice to know in case I ever get called one. I'll just show them my tatt and tell them to take it back ;) LOL

Yeah, that kind of made me scratch my head! I was like, what? She has no genitals! How in the world is she a slut?

Hahaha
No, it's more about the teaching of "don't judge tattooed people" like we're all criminals or misfits. Haha!
Dh and I both have a lot of tattoos.

Paranoid mama.  The dolls have been around for ages, some of them for generations. Don't sweat it, your kids  will grow out of wanting to play with them.

They - are- toys.

Well my son is 1 but if he wanted a GI Joe then I wouldhnt have a problem. If I have a daughter I would let her play with the barbie and the bratz, my little sister always wanted me to play bratz with her when she was little, we had fun
