Wow, what an ugly skank ho.

I feel sorry for you kids, having to live in the future when all those girls grow up to look like that implanted image.

Wait, where is her hard drive?

If you press Bling Barbie's back, she sticks out her ass and rack and you hear an mp3 of "My Humps".

Last fall I worked overnight stocking the shelves at target. The toy section was really intresting, because I got to see what all the kids were into.

Bratz were very popular. The "my scene" barbie dolls are meant to compete with them.

Whoa.

It's almost as if Mattell was watching South Park, saw the "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset" episode and said "Hey! That's a good idea!"

I despair for the future, etc.

I'd prefer Feral Cheryl.

andraste, somehow I just read the phrase "Doofn Til Dawn for Feral Cheryl" on that site. My eyes hurt.

Just woke up to realise that a single link to a Barbie doll at Amazon.com just became best of the web. I think I shall go back to sleep.

As a related aside, is 8 single link posts in a day a new record? Just curious...

Britney should demand her royalties immediately. Turleen indeed...

I blame Paris Hilton.

(although the head to body ratio of this doll more closely resembles Nicole.)

The next person to use the tern "best of the web" for any reason whatsoever gets hit upside the head with a Barbie-Ho, with plenty of bling.

I pray to God that all the parents out there are actually parenting and keeping this crap out of their daughters' hands.

"Whatever , Harvey." for those in the know, best Zellers commercial ever!

So that is why we created "OMG" and "WTF." Makes perfect sense, now.

Meanwhile, our descent to hell is acellerating. Please fasten your seatbelts and return your souls to the full upright and locked position.

God, and only Somnibulist came up with a decent snark. This is a shitty post.

I'm all for raising kids to have a healthy view of sex but what the hell sort of parent buys their kid a toy slut?

Instead of kung-fu grip, the new GI Joe is going to come with Pimp-slap action.

Why does Feral Cheryl give into the social construct of the sumbissive female by shaving? Sellout.

"Bling bling bling" went the Barbie...
"Ka-ching ching ching" went Mattell

Does Skipper come with track marks?

Ooh, wait -- how did they get that USB drive into the doll's body? Because I am so totally making one.
posted by LittleMissCranky at 9:10 AM on October 7, 2005


Feral Cheryl is modelled on the green extremists(...)This 34 cm vinyl doll runs barefoot, dreadlocks her hair with coloured braids and beads, wears simple rainbow clothes, has piercings and a range of tattoos, and even a bit of natural body hair.

I didn't see a mustache or any underarm hair...so? Does that mean what I think it means? She's got pubic hair?

What delmoi said, I happened upon the 'Bratz' toy line a year or two ago and was just sort of generation-gap shocked as to what constituted dolls these days. To continue my utter amazement, apparently Bratz has continued to succeed at an astonishing rate. Girls with thick makeup, materialistic goals (ok.. so Barbie is materialistic too..ahem), and questionable clothing are a big hit with children through this line.

So Mattel, after trying to play the upper hand, has decided to join the fray and impersonate. Shameful, dumb, but hey, the toy maker executives have to get their bonuses!

on preview: Oh if I have a little girl, oh, oh dear. The authoritarian hell I'm going to put on that girl through in the name of proper parenting.
posted by cavalier at 9:34 AM on October 7, 2005


WTF? And I thought the Bratz! were bad. Sheesh!

I'm so glad I don't have any girl-children for other people to buy for. (My daughter is a teenager now. So I have other problems.) (eriko, if you get her one, it better come with a rocket engine....)

Kimberly : "I'm never having kids."

And the doctor telling us it last week that it's a boy is just becoming better news all the time.

Kinda remind me of this. Barbie in a dominatrix outfit (with whip): Recomended age 6+.

"My Bling Bling Barbie” is, her makers say, modelled on what the celebrities are wearing, complete with big earrings, necklaces, bracelets and “shirt skirts”. The more “grown-up” look, aimed at children aged between seven and ten, was on show yesterday in a church in West London, where the Toy Retailers Association also announced its predicted bestsellers for this Christmas. With more than £1 billion spent on presents by Christmas shoppers, manufacturers were at pains to depict their toys as the latest thing.

MBBB was introduced in England at a church? God isn't dead, I guess, he's working for Mattel!
