Bash a Barbie for a Girl Today
‘Babyish’ Barbie under attack from little girls, study shows
My daughter has never been a doll kind of girl but for about 2 years, she had Barbies, some hand-me-downs from friends of an aunt and others bought by her grandmother, but she never liked them as much as blocks or Play-Doh or running. I encouraged her to pop the heads off (and put them back on) and encouraged a jaundiced view of Barbie as a doll and model for life.
