    Default Barbies (the doll), love 'em or hate 'em

    Just out of pure curiosity, what do you all think of barbie dolls.

    I for one can't stand them, never liked them when I was a kid cause I thought they were stupid to play with, don't like them as an adult cause I still think they're stupid to play with and I don't really like the whole image they portray.

    I loved them as a child and still do. DD has the Disney princess ones.

    I can understand why people are against them due to the image they portray though.

    Barbies are awesome. They have been around for a long time and I don't think there is a image thing with them. The newer Barbie wanna be's yes there is. My dd loves her Barbie princesses. She has repunzal and Ariel lol even my DS plays with them.

    I've got no problem with Barbie. I used to play with mine all the time when I was younger.
    I bought dd her first Barbie for her 4 th birthday last month and she loves it.

    When she's conceived as the 'ideal' then yes, there is an image issue with them.

    I'm obsessed with dolls and collect them, but not Barbies.

    Growing up I had one Barbie and she had a pink bob (courtesy of BlissedOut's salon), then I had over 20 mint condition Kelly dolls (Barbie's little sister).

    I *might* let DD have Kelly dolls if they still make them and she asks for Barbies.

    I'm with Waterliily. I have very fond memories of playing Barbies with my sister as a child. We had a very cool barbie house too.

    I do understand why others don't like them though. As an adult I can see that she doesn't exactly portray a healthy image... but as a child it never occurred to me. I just liked to dress her up

    Barbies were by far my favourite thing to play with as a child.

    My friends and I still played with them up until the end of primary school and a few times in secret when we were in year 7!

    I still have a soft spot for Barbie.

    I really enjoyed buying Barbie stuff for my god daughter when she was still young enough to play with them (she outgrew toys at about age 7 ).

    No issues with barbies here. If dd wants them she can have them (she's 2 and has 1 Barbie and the car). I don't really ban things as such though (expect Dora/age inappropriate) I encourage dd to select for her self-with a bit of help of course.

    I freaking loved barbies. I had about 15 of them. I didn't know anything about her so-called 'ideal' body shape, my My Little Ponies probably weren't accurate horse body shapes either, I was 5 so I just cared about the awesome awesome outfits.

    This was my favourite. Come on, what little girl wouldn't think this was the coolest doll EVER.
