Barbies

Hoping to find something fun and creative, I took a walk through the toy section. And you know what I found? A bunch of slutty looking dolls (many of them Barbies) and cheapy, fakey costume jewelry and makeup kits. Barf!

Let’s take a look at a few of the Barbie fashions offered to today’s children:

Everyone knows that Female Doctors wear high heels and summer dresses!

If you buy your kid this sexy fur stole and miniskirt combo, you know what’s next.
