By Louisa Peacock. After years and years of criticism over Barbie's teeny tiny waist, stupidly long legs and big ish boobs, the plastic doll's maker Mattel has finally responded. How refreshing. It could have come years earlier, but still, how refreshing. For once a big corporate hasn't tried to dodge the obvious elephant in the room about Barbie's 'perfect body' being unachievable for the majority of women. It doesn't actually matter, is the message from Culmone.
Mattel introduces Slumber Party Barbie , with pink satin-like pajamas, a pink robe, pink slippers, and a mirror. The scale is gone, but the diet plan stays. When you rotate her arm, her torso lengthens and her breasts grow. Responding to public outcry, Mattel pulls the doll.
Top definition. Barbie Doll unknown. A girl who thinks she is better than everyone.
After all of the recent controversy over a silly photo that was taken of my friend Barbie and me, I've decided it's time to speak up. We were hanging at Walmart last week when somebody decided to snap our picture. I'm not sure if it was paparazzi or a soccer mom or what—but that photo ended up all over the Internet. Apparently, a lot of people were angry at the fact that I was being sold for almost half the price of Barbie. People wondered if it was some type of statement about the way African-American women are valued in this country as compared to white women.
