Bung_Howdy: "Monster High" dolls? I thought Bratz was the new(est) kids giving barbie the stink-eye


Bratz is SO 2001, get with the times.

Barbie is Margot from All About Eve. The rest are Eve and her horrid competitors.

Both are made by Mattel. They probably aren't losing any sleep over it.
 
2013-07-19 03:11:03 PM  
Yeah, but what is their 'preferred gender pronoun'?

"Kids are growing up much faster younger," Silver says. "A 6-year-old is looking for something a little edgier. That's the reason why Monster High has had so much success."

Watch out, folks, we got edgy 6 year olds here!

Dear Mattel:

South Park had the answer years ago, now go find a firebug.

Listen biatches. I smacked down those damn Bratz and I'll waste these punks too. Step back amateurs, Barbies going Goth. Continually Depressed Barbie is a delightful teen dressed in black and carries her favorite book - Samuel Richardson' Clarissa (unabridged). though dateless and with limited friends, Continually Depressed Barbies' life takes a turn for the better when, at Community College, she discover lesbianism. Not that she's a lez but it really sets daddy off.

Not good enough? Vampirella Barbie. Already has the rack, might as well show it. Her quest for blood is as strong as her quest for a good pair of stilettos and matching miniskirt.

Has this been done to death? Not if I have anything to say about it. How about Barbie, the Vampire Hunter? The lawyers say we changed it just enough. Buffy, er Barbie, tools about in her Vampire smashing VW Bug with Cowardly Ken providing comic relief and set ups for Barbie's wise cracks.

Now go out an buy them before we install nips and a landing strip.

Article: To be sure, Barbie is still No. 1 in the doll market, and the Mattel franchise is worth $1.3 billion.

I can't believe people get paid to write this crap

Now I'm picturing barbie's coming with doll sized razor blades and little slits in her arms and legs that will actually bleed when you dig the razor in.

Look, it's not hard to understand. People are clannish, cliquish beings. Barbie has always appealed to the preppy mindset. She's the Alpha personality, tall, Hollywood-pretty doll. She appeals to girls who feel like that's where they belong; In that group. With those people. Barbie dolls are for girls who like the idea of being rich, and who care about being prettier and more "successful" than other girls. Barbie girls want to fit in.

And the Bratz dolls appeal to the rough-around-the-edges, gangsta, hip-hop/trance/rave girls. The girls who think Barbie's a wimp and has no appreciation for showing off her bling and being kind of biatchy. Bratz dolls are for the girls who will cut a biatch. Bratz girls want to hang out.

The Monster High dolls have targeted the introverts: The Beta females (and males!) who don't see any value in expensive designer clothes or jewels, and don't see the merits of being a biatch just for the hell of it. They're the ones who think being unique is more important than fitting in. Monster High girls want to be known for their brains and/or artistic talents.

In simple terms:

Barbie: Preps, extroverts, biatches, future fashion slaves, future sorority slags.
Bratz: Party girls, ghetto-fab girls, tough girls, future strippers.
Monster High: Artsy girls, goths, introverts, funny girls, creepy girls, future baristas & liberal arts majors.

They are basically little hooker dolls.

Where are the dolls with tattoos on their faces...oh wait, yeah, there they are. Oh, but what about some piercings and such, like maybe a railroad spike run through their scapula - now THAT would be unique.

Oh, and how about heroin tracks? You know, I want our young'ns these days to have something more identifiable with their soon-to-be life.

My 4 year old plays with both.  The Barbie's are the mom and the Monster High are the big sisters.  I'm a 42 year old man and I see the appeal of the Monster High dolls.

/Bratz were nuthin but 'hood rats.

Barbie was built to those exaggerated proportions to be able to properly fit clothes and have shirts hang off of her properly.  We grew up with a muscle bound GI Joe and other chiseled action figures.  We got over it.
 
2013-07-19 04:16:01 PM  
Why not forego either doll and just get clothing like this for your daughter?  The toys are training tools for the trade.

In semi related news I've always wondered how the beautiful people of the past would stack up against their more contemporary counterparts.
I mean would women like Grace Kelly, Rita Hayworth, Ginger Rogers and Katherine Hepburn at their prime even come close to the starlets of today with surgeries, trainers, special diet and other beauty enhancements.

When I was growing up, Barbie said things like "Let's go get a soda."  Now they say "Let's go knife someone."
