There are rumors circulating that the famous toy company Mattel will be producing Kardashian Barbies based on the infamous Kardashian sisters–Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe.
Unlike the very slim Barbie, the Kardashian dolls will reportedly follow the measurements of their real-life counterparts and reflect their usual style. Mattel does not want to comment on the matter.
The issue became hot when Kim tweeted this statement on Christmas Day: “Merry Christmas Barbs @BarbieStyle! Long time no see! What did Ken get you for Chrsitmas? Miss you doll!” And there was a response. “I’m sure we will be seeing lots of each other! Shopping soon! Xo RT@BarbieStyle: Happy Doll-idays to you to @KimKardashian! See you in 2012?”
To be blunt about it, no, I will not be buying a Kim Kardashian doll or any of her sisters for Dindin. Kim had been involved in a lot of scandals, such as explicit photos, a sex tape with her ex-boyfriend Ray J and her short-lived married to NBA player Kris Humphries that reportedly made Kim richer by $17 million. Needless to say, she is nowhere in my list of personalities that I would want my daughter to emulate.
Why would Mattel event think of such a thing? I mean if the reports are true, then where is their sense of social responsibility?
