with 5 comments

Los Angeles, CA, August 27th, 2008, (Reuters).- Backed by the California-based Mattel law firm, popular doll

The Bratz and Barbie are not friends anymore. "You're my doll, rock'n'roll, feel the glamour in pink, kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky," Sasha mocked Barbie as she took her pretty plastic crown.

"You're my doll, rock'n'roll, feel the glamour in pink, kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky," Sasha mocked Barbie as she took her pretty plastic crown.

Barbie beat Bratz in a lawsuit over her “pretty clothes” designer.

In an press conference, Barbie explained the reason for wanting to keep the designer for the clothes that she claims those Bratz stole from her; “I’m a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world.”

When asked for comments regarding that she portrayed a dumb and submissive image, not appropriate for her young admirers, she replied, “I’m a blond, bimbo girl, in a fantasy world. Dress me up, make it tight, I’m your dolly.”

On the other hand, Cloe, Yasmin, Sasha and Jade, collectively known as the Bratz, commented that they will appeal the decision and take the designer back. “Everybody now, time to show the whole world what we’re all about, with the girls with a passion for fashion.”

On a related note, a toy manufacturer, who has had financial success with previous different versions of Barbie, such as Latina Barbara, yo mama Barbs, anorexic Barbie and teen pregnant Barbie, released a new Divorced Barbie with a hefty price tag of $5,000 dollars. When president Robert A. Eckert was asked for the reason of such a high price, he explained “Well, you see, the new divorced Barbie doll comes with a lot of accessories, such as Ken’s house, Ken’s apartment, Ken’s car, Ken’s furniture, Ken’s bank accounts and Ken’s brother.”

  3. first and formost Barbie is the Icon. She is the stepping stone for new ideas. This brings us to “The Bratz”. The Bratz finally gave us(children big and small) a chance to look at fashion first not CHEST size first. Why not enhance the face of a doll its what children recognize in their selves (eyes,nose, mouth). What a masterful idea. The business is about the money. I say “bring it on”. Dont back down because you ran up aganist a bit of a challenge. Barbie is a favorite among many. Yet, there was a need for something different that in a way didnt involve the barbie characteristics. How ever it goes I have many dolls(Bratz)and will continue to love “The Bratz”. keep up the good job.
