As might be expected, parents are fired up. Doubtless, worriment of staining the children runs amok. Like jailhouse tattoos, this dolly will likely cause an epidemic of playground tattoos. Besides the scarring and the disfigurement, contagion looms ominously. One has to wonder why "designers" have to mess with an iconic toy? Why?? Kids can be so impressionable.
Well, check out some of these images. You gotta admit the body art is pretty darn good. And the pink bob is snappy. And the wardrobe is to die for. And, and ...and. This Barbie is a winner. Ooops, sorry parents.
