 I honestly don't care.  My dolls didn't shape my feelings about my body...advertising did.  I would like to see real body types in clothing ads.  Real women are not 6' and 105 lbs.

I think the Barbie is okay...she needs better clothes though...she looks like a tramp.

No not an overweight Barbie and not a super skinny Barbie. Just a regular size Barbie please.

I really hate most of Barbie's clothes. Not because real women shouldn't dress however they want, but because all those skimpy outfits make it seem like there's only one way to be attractive, and that's to reveal as much as possible at all times.

It would be nice to see a Barbie who could at least menstruate if you translated her proportions to human-size. Barbie as she is would die.

I said "other." I think it would be nice if Barbie came in all (realistic) shapes and sizes.

Why would any mother want toy companies to encourage childhood obesity by making an obese barbie?
