Totally Stylin'

Word on the "Mad Mama Street" is that Mattel has come out with a new more "colorful" Barbie...."Totally Stylin' Tattoos Barbie". She comes complete with her own "tattoo gun" so the kids can tattoo Barbie all up wherever they want. Apparently, this new doll has some outraged while others can't get to the store fast enough! They have flown off the shelves in New York already! Much like the world itself, Barbie has changed quite a bit over the past 50 years....
Barbie has been a Dr., a cheerleader, a bride, a vet, a teacher, a showgirl, even a Nascar fan.....the latest controversial Barbie doesn't come too terribly far behind the previous Barbie that had mamas mad everywhere...who can forget "Midge" the first PREGNANT BARBIE!
I must have missed that public outrage, (that was so huge it caused "Midge" to actually be pulled from the shelf), because I was out BUYING a few of them!! Good Heavens! Guess I won't be up for any "Parent of the Year" awards with these "hussies" in our toybox! Please note that I did purchase this......








before I purchased this........................
just remember...it's all in the presentation.....all in the presentation! I have a feeling the same little gal who wanted "Midge" will be wanting "Ms. Totally Stylin' " too!

That's crazy!! I think its catchy and all with the girls wanting to "style" up their barbies but might give the impression that tatooing our own bodies makes us "stylish."
Whats happening to these brain washed barbie makers?????
GREAT...I hate that media markets to the girls in such a big way!!!
