There is something out there that I find rather disturbing. I noticed it about a year ago, and this year I think I know why. They represent all that is evil in this world.
Have you seen these things? Anyone out there with a sister, niece, daughter or granddaughter between the ages of 3-12 have I'm sure. I ordered my youngest niece the winter collection for Christmas from Toys R Us dot com. My beautiful UPS Man delivered them Wednesday.
They are HOTT with 2 T's in the tween set.(If anyone can tell me where that saying came from I will love you forever and a day.) They are "cooler" then Barbie, with hipper clothes and a more current sense of style.
Now I know some people find it totally acceptable to dress their 9 year old child up like a 23 year old club slut, and that's their perogative, even if it is Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! Did I say it was wrong?? Don't even get me started on this topic. I guess now they want their dolls to look like 23 year old club sluts too.
Anyway, even this isn't the lingering why are these dolls familiar looking? They are strange, with oversized heads and little tiny bodies.
Here is Exhibit A:
Now let's take a look see at Exhibit B:
Do you see what I see? Women that have made their self so skinny that their heads look extremely large compared to their bodies.
For fuck's sake, why don't we just give them red Anna bracelets and sign them up for one of those pro anorexia sites when they hit 8?
That, and those dolls just creep me out. I think I'm going to keep them in my shed until Christmas.
