I am the Worst Auntie on the Planet

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse:




Talking Bratz Dolls

They say "Do you like a special boy right now?"

If anyone ever gives my daughter a toy like this, I hope they don't mind when they find it wrapped in duct tape and hanging outside their front door on fire the next morning.

PS. Tracy, I am eternally sorry that I got Kylie a Princess Bratz Doll for Christmas last year, if you'd like to trade it in this year for a more acceptable toy, I will understand. Ignorance is no excuse.

My apologies,
Carrie

Yikes, toys/dolls teaching our little girls to dress slutty and be gaga over boys. Sad this has become the norm.

Plastic ho's. I am so glad my daughters are past this stage. Whew.

It's only a matter of time before I face this very battle... I am going with the, "No, she's a whore" response.

Lisa said...

Oy! Just... Oy!

Ugh. I posted about this a while ago- there is actually a Bratz doll that comes with a bubble jar- that looks like a BEER BOTTLE. Have you see the Barbies dressed in hooker/stripper bathing suits too? I don't know what these people are thinking. I wrote to Bratz and they didn't respond- probably cuz I asked them why they made whore dolls. LOL.

The little girls in my PRESCHOOL class used to have these. They loved, loved, loved them! The dolls made me want to smash, smash, smash them!

For some reason, I find the most bothersome thing about them, besides the fact that they look like teenage whores, to be their excessive use of Lip Liner. WTF?!?!

Yikes yikes yikes!! I have to say this makes me glad to have boys!!! hang in there, you'll make a feminist out of her yet!! (and I mean that absolutely kindly, as you'd know!!)

Whores, they are damm whores! What ever happened to role models? Positive role models.
They promote; clubbing, liking boys, shopping, drinking, wearing slutty clothes, and worst of all little girls think it's okay to want to be like this.
Paris Hilton must have played with bratz
UGH!!!

Oh MAN I HATE THOSE DOLLS!!!

Maybe Tracy can show Kylie that Bratz Doll as what NOT to become?

I dunno. :)

wow. You really touched a nerve. I can't believe what passes for little girl clothes at Target, either. Do people REALLY want their girls to try to be popular by dressing like that? If nobody buys that stuff..... wonder what would happen?

So glad to see that those very low cut pants are finally going "out"... even the ones with matching thongs. Cant' tell you how many times Dad & I have just laughed at people we see in them. It's either that, or cry.

Wow. They really say that? I can't believe it! OK, I can believe it. I just don't want to.

I am so happy that a parent sees this too! I was so upset when I watched this cartoon. I am very anti BRATZ! This is not what we want our future to be! Woman fought for rights, burned thier bra's so that we could be educated indipendent leaders.
The CEO of the company BRATZ said that thier dolls do not effect what little girls (young women) think or espire to be. That It all comes from the home & from the parents. That Television, Magazines, School, ect. has no consiquence. ARE YOU Serious! And He's still in buisness.
I salute you for seeing what this doll & cartoon is. Thank you for reinsuring me that thier still are educated people out there.
