    Bratz vs. Barbie

    Ok so I have a niece turning 4 next month so I went out shopping for a toy. As I was walking down the Barbie isle (She loves barbie) I was thinking about all the lawsuits and problems Mattel was having a few years ago with Barbies image. Although a successful pilot, teacher, mom, wife, doctor, veterinarian (dont know how to spell, sorry), soldier, secretary, model, ceo and who knows what else, parents were mad that her porportions were too perfect for their little girls (and some boys) to idolize. So mattel changed barbie from a victoria secret model to a small breasted, flat footed normal (almost normal) woman. Having been out of the Barbie market for a while I was surprised at how many new dolls there were. The new Kelly series and my little ponies are back (horraay!!) and a new doll called bratz. The bratz doll was the weirdest I had ever seen, her head is huge in comparison to her body she has an even smaller waist than her wrists and is covered the worst makup, clothing and accessories I had ever seen. Then they also had baby bratz! They looked like baby prostitutes! So far I havnt heard any lawsuits being filed against this doll, but what kind of message does that send to little girls?! A girl so skinny it makes the rest of her look out of proportion? and makup that looks like she should be on a corner? Personally I think Barbie is better and while I dont think a doll should effect a girls personal thoughts of image, how can a doll so disgusting make her feel good about herself? Sorry I know this is an earful but what do you think?

    The Bratz feet always fall off and get lost! And I agree with you about the Bratz babies! That's how alot of people dress now! But I don't why they did that to those dolls. I don't play with Barbies and other dolls anymore. The Barbies seem better because they're feet can't fall off and get lost. I really don't care about them the kids can play with those big-eyed Bratz dolls if they want to or those barbies that have been around for years! It's their choice.

    Bratz vs Barbie? I don't really see this as a reputable debate. No biggie, I am moving it to Cyber Lounge.

    If any other mod sees this as a distinguishable debate; move it. It's fine by me.

    Moving...

    omg! finally I have come across some one who thinks the same!

    I look at these dolls in the store and think well no wonder why kids are growing up faster these days, just look what the media is shoving in there faces. Or maybe there is just a change in society and the way we view things?

    With regards to law suits, just wait for something to happen, parents will be sueing soon XD

    Here is something it's not all about Bratz but I will put the link in and quote the part you should look at.
    Where has Feminism gone-Also has paragragh about Bratz and the hookerness



    Then we have our little girls, whose role models become sexier and wearing less and less clothes every year, and I'm just talking about the Bratz dolls. Don't get me wrong. I'm not against looking sexy. I like looking sexy myself. But there is a world of difference between sexy and being nothing but a sex object. Have we taught our daughters the difference?

    I agree the Bratz are getting even sluttier everytime another one is being made. This is what is being taught to children that this is what they should look like and that is totally the wrong impression that young children should be getting from dolls.

    Get the kid something Dora related. That way they have something within their age range and they may pick up a bit of spanish.

    It'd take the kid away from the Bratz and Barbie problems.

    In my opinion.
    There both really deformed. If you tried to make a "Barbie*” into a real human girl, she wouldn't be able to function properly. She would be overly skinny and the weight of her breasts would make her always topple over. It would be a total catastrophe. Ladies, you do NOT want to be like Barbie.

    As for Bratz, I’m not too familiar with them. I’ve never actually come across one of them, probably because there so new. So all I have to say for them is that they bring lip surgery to a far bigger level. If anyone in reality had those lips, it wouldn't be the same and it would be really disgusting.
