Kardashian Barbie Dolls? Say It Isn’t So!
I had high hopes for Barbie last year – Mattel introduced “Architect Barbie” into their "Barbie I Can Be" line of career-oriented dolls complete with a blueprint bag and hard hat (and um, some killer leather booties – but I digress).
This had me thinking that the line of dolls had come a long way since 1992, when she was programmed to say, “Math class is tough.” I kid you not – Gloria Steinem must have been foaming at the mouth.
But rumor has it that Babs is hitting an all time a low and, wait for it…hitting the shelves in the form of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.
While it hasn’t been confirmed, several news outlets are reporting that the reality stars will be immortalized in plastic (god knows how much plastic they already have in their human forms) in a limited-edition collection.
A source for Us Magazine stated that the dolls "will reflect the girls' measurements and may even come in Kardashian-designed outfits." Ruh-roh.
So what message are we sending to our little ones with these dolls? Make a career out of exploiting yourself, marry rich and quickly, divorce even quicker, make a sex tape, spend daddy’s millions and never, ever leave the house without a full face of makeup and a boob or booty hugging ensemble?
What’s your take on this?
