Iran is the world's third largest importer of toys, such as Barbie dolls.

Iran's top prosecutor has called for restrictions in the import of Western toys, saying they have a destructive effect on the country's youth.

Bratz dolls have a worse influence.

The only thing good about the Barbie dolls is that they give the weird female art students/emo/goth chicks something to burn to feel better about themselves......that is when they're not cutting themselves.

Then maybe they should stop eating them. Those plastic chicken-like legs have got to be tough on the intestinal tract.

I always thought a fellow could make some good money by dressing Barbies up as your favorite stripper and selling them out side the local Mens Club. Every guy would want one as a keep sake.

Does anyone know Barbies last name. I do. It's the same as mine.

Did you hear about the new Barbie, it's called the divorced Barbie, comes with all of Kens stuff.

They're replacing her with Barhima dolls. She comes with a wide array of stylish burqas, koran, and detachable suicide belt. "Stoning Because She Looked at Another Man" playset sold separately.

No discussion of dolls is complete without revisiting this classic.
I'm pretty sure this collector was once an LTUP regular.

Holy smokes that's funny. I had an old friend who got heavy into buying and selling "action figures" on Ebay. Claims he makes great money, but he never liked me calling them dolls.

This picture cracks me up. Put a tiny disco ball above their heads and it could be one wild dance club for the collector.

What a lot of hate you spew!

Nope - muslim people are adapting Barbie to their own culture:

Fawaz Abidin, the brand manager for NewBoy Design Studio in Syria which produced the doll, said: "This isn't just about putting the hijab on a Barbie doll. You have to create a character that parents and children will want relate to. She's honest, loving, and caring, and she respects her father and mother."

iwannarc,

How far does she have to walk behind Ken? If Barbie has a private conversation with GI Joe does Ken get to Stone her?
