Having just been informed that OFGS already exists, can I instead coin HA? It stands for Heavens Above. This is political correctness gone mad. But if Barbie makers are trying to cater to as many sections of society as they can, then why don't we see other variants? Like Buzzcut Barbie? Or Big Boned Barbie?
I don't think we want our daughters to be encouraged by Barbie's latest phase of rebellious behaviour do we? No I thought not. As a father to two daughters, I'd like to see some other forms of the elderly doll emerge. Professional Woman Barbie might be one, Victorian Values Barbie another.
|Here at The Tiger Father central, we like our dolls to be|
more homely and down-to-earth, such as this sterling
home-made effort by our four-year-old Evie. I need
not tell you it is a beaver. Made with carboard and
sticky tape, it's also a lot cheaper than a Barbie, if
perhaps not as durable.
