    I had Barbies as a kid. I loved them. I played with them lots.

    Now, as a mother. I hate them.

    Not only is it the whole impossible body image thing, but also that sure, Barbie can do whatever she wants...when she's covered in pink

    The only one I didn't have out of these is the one on far right.

    I also had Barbie of Barbie and the rockers and one with really long hair. My folks still have them and the car, motorbike, horse, dog ( if memory serves, his name was Prince) and Ken and the clothes and the kids love playing with them despite the fact that I "remodeled" their dresses, gave them nipples and pubic hair and Roxette haircuts! No pristine toys here

    Oh, I so want to track down and re-buy all my old Barbies now!

    I had Loving You Barbie too. One of my favourites!

    My parents never bought me the Barbie townhouse, which I really really wanted. They argued that Barbie couldn't actually stand up inside any of the rooms, and that it was really expensive and very rubbish. They kind of had a point, but I still feel like that would have completed my life...

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

    I had tones of Barbies and their accessories (sports car, caravan, horse) and could never understand why my nana would buy me fake Barbies from Franklins (brand snob at 4 haha, but they were soft plastic which made them weirdly bendy / squishy).

    I understand that people have issues with the whole body image thing, but don't really understand why... The toys people choose to give their children is of course up to them, but I don't understand why people think a thin, tall doll could be any worse than a "fat" baby doll? The girl who's picture is posted a few pages back clearly has other issues and they're being expressed through wanting to look like a plastic toy... Sorry if this sounds judge-y and again, people's kids can play with whatever they want of course but I don't understand the concerns and am hoping someone can explain it to me?

    Girl X - my Dad made me a barbie house. It was amazing and they fitted properly in it!

    Was a tad cramped in there with all my barbies though.

    I am soooo going to call my dad and ask him what on earth he was thinking by not doing precisely this...

    I had the townhouse! I'm sorry to burst any bubbles but it totally rocked. Totally. Rocked.
