The Real Barbie

by Brandi Land
(Thompson, IA)

I do think Barbie influences girls today.. Not just little girls but adults as well. Not so much in a bad way though.. Barbie is so fun to play with. You can dress her and her friends up any way that you want to. Its just always a blast to play along with barbie and maybe have youre friends come over and play along.

I never thought of Barbie as a way of losing weight. I figured she was just a play toy for little girls all over the world. I never thought people would be so influenced by her to want to lose weight. I am 19 years old and still like the whole barbie theme. But its not right to wanna make little girls wanna grow up and look like that. The Slumber Party Barbie is so not a good example of what is right. If she was holding a book on how to lose weight, that is not right for little kids to see or have in their heads. So in some ways barbie is still a good thing, but if you really think about it she is not a good role model....
