Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

Well if you HAVE to ask....


...the answer is "yes."

We note with glee in my household that Bratz dolls are going to be discontinued after Christmas, after a court ruling that the creator of the attitude-ridden little dolls designed them while working for Matel. So Bratz go. Right direction; wrong reason.
I'm all about free market forces, and it disturbs me that market forces haven't crushed dolls that depict bitchy little girls dressed like strumpets, with sneers on their faces. Worse, they've got their own animated telivision show, and their arrow was pointed up.

I do not have children, but there are little ones in my family. Some of them love Bratz and I hate it. I watched one show with them and hoped to god this is not how they are going to act. I told the fiance that our (future) girls can not, under any circumstances, have Bratz even if they vow to hate me forever. Kudos to you as well.

The Baby Bratz are the worst -- babies in lingerie, with make-up? Helloooo, pedo-bait.

We banned them in our house, and also celebrated with demonic glee when they were crap-canned.

I saw Bratz Babiez taking a wrong turn in a toy aisle. My reaction to the sight of a toy infant that was apparently preparing to call its pimp was such that a salesperson became concerned.

Heh. I probably should not admit to how many Bratz Babyz I have in my house...

You're not alone, brother. My wife calls the phenomenom "prostitots." What's really sick is the parents that think dressing their six-year-old up like she's going clubbing is somehow "cute." It's vile and exploitative. Children should be allowed to be children. Even the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon fall prey to the allure of the 'tween marketing niche.

Yup. No Bratz dolls for my daughter. I think they went too far with those.

Bratz are banned in our house, too. We allow Barbies, but Bratz just took the whole skank thing too far.
