Remember that whole mess with the tokidoki Barbie collector doll (for adults) when it hit the media like crazy? The doll was trashed and talked about so much that she made the news and all because she had tattoos!
My view on it was Barbie can be whoever she wants to be, she is a doll and face facts there are women walking round with similar tattoos already in the media (popstars, actresses) who little girls already look up to. It’s much more important to teach manners than to worry about how people look.
Anyway, I was fine with Tokidoki Barbie she’s awesome and very sold out (although you can still find her at super high prices, see Amazon links below). But, what surprises me is that the Monster High Dolls are slipping under the ‘moaning Minnie’ radar. Did you know Operetta, the Monster High doll with the bright red hair and facial scars, has tattoos?
Yeah! She does and no one cares which is great, it’s just a shame that the same wasn’t thought about TokiDoki Barbie. I’m a big fan of the Monster high doll series, it’s a good thing that they are very individual looking, it could teach an important lesson.
