I posted this picture of my newbie on facebook and I got a message pleading that I do my research on barbie.. barbie gives women and men unrealistic expectations of women.... -.-
are you FREKING kidding me?
Barbie never hurt anyone. SHE IS A DOLL. I played with barbie no body issues here. My grandma had a HUGE barbie collection so I got barbie everything as a kid. Did not scar me one bit. I unfriended them. It was an old acquaintances Mother who sent me the message. I couldn't help but laugh. My daughter is almost 7 weeks old and has 20+ new in box barbies from my grandmothers collection that I saved plus my entire childhood collection ( yep those were saved too). I am so pumped to be able to look at new barbie stuff too when the time comes.

Barbie is allowed in our home. I have bunches of collector Barbie's myself and even played with her as a child. My grandma would make awesome clothes for her too. I remember even at one time while visiting relatives in N.D. my great-aunt kept the Barbies from when her girls were little. So these dolls went back to the 60's! :)
