Adnohr scalped a doll, LOL

If ISIS survives (and it looks like they won't, thank God and Trump),  I bet they would get around to making Jihadi Barbie and Ken dolls,  complete with doll-size long knives and a set of infidel dolls with detachable heads,  to practice executions. 

Or the Ken doll could come with a few little-girl Christian slave dolls,  to encourage the slave market that was thriving in ISIS territory,  and may still exist online.

I was tomboy - never played with dolls that I can remember. It was more cowboys and indians with the boys, and me with the long hair was always the indian. I can remember scalping one of the neighbour girl's dolls and got into a lot of doodoo because of that! I wonder if those Barbies will be practicing sharia law?

When my girls were small they had Barbies, as well as other toys, and didn't spend an excessive amount of time restricted to Barbie play. I found, as they did, that Barbies are difficult to dress for younger children whose fine motor skills have not developed yet (I would have to help them), and can be a source of frustration until they master those skills. What my kids enjoyed was creating various scenarios with Barbie - in her house, her this, her that. In that aspect, the dolls fostered creative play, though any doll could have done so.  I think Barbies a bit inappropriate for young kids, and unrealistic for older kids. As far as the latest Barbie, it was only a matter of time. 

I never had Barbies, maybe they weren't invented, but played with my dollies, some of which looked like babies, and was perfectly fine with that. It's the media that contributes to the sales of these things. And I'm glad to hear that most men are attracted to a woman for her...brain. My grandfather said as much also. LOL!

I wasn't much of a "Barbie" girl growing up.  I think I owned like one Barbie doll.  lol  It's neat to see what different kinds of Barbies they come up with.

we had GI Joe dolls when my old men were kids...but granddaughter had heaps of Barbies and they all ended up messed hair naked or dressed the sort of way that their crazy Nan dressed...yeah that would be me. Nice comfy mix and maybe match. This doll will end up exactly the same. Little girls are little girls.

I'm waiting for an 80 year old grandma Barbie.  I never had one when I was a child as they hadn't been invented yet.  Then when my children were young they were all boys and we never had such a thing in our house.  Then my beautiful granddaughters lived so far away and were more interested in outdoor activities like their older brothers.  Great-grandaughter Marianna has a whole room full of all kinds of different dolls and stuffed toys which she never plays with.  I'm sure there must be a Barbie or two in that pile.

My nieces used to have a lot of Barbies... and they all ended up naked.  We'd buy all the cute or fancy Barbies and they'd still end up in a big pile of naked clones.  I can't imagine this one will be any different.

Have you heard that they created a new line of Ken dolls that include a "dad body" and one with a man bun?
