I wonder if there was such a big hoopla about Barbie and Disney Princesses when I was growing up? I remember spending days with my friend, taking turns on our front porches playing house with our Barbie collections. The top bunk in my bedroom was like a Barbie Utopia. Now there are Bratz dolls, Monster High dolls, Winx dolls, La La Loopsy dolls, and I’ve seen complaints about all of them. How none of them look like real women. I think it’s safe to say that no doll looks like a real woman. Waldorf dolls certainly don’t…they barely have a face at all! I don’t know about you, but I’m not relying on a child’s toy to be my girls’ role model for anything in life.
