do you remember playing with barbie when you were little? well a lot has changed since then...nowadays kids aren't just playing with her but actually trying to be her with the big fake boobs, wide hips, big butt, sickeningly skinny legs and caked on make up its really having a bad effect on our kids they think that she has it all and that she is perfect but no one can be that perfect and they thing is that a lot of them actually look up to her, to a plastic fake doll i mean there a lots of other great women who have actually changed the world for the better so those are MY reasons on why i think barbie is a bad influence. what do YOU think??

Dolls have always been the favourite toys for girls...and barbie doll has just no competition. Girls love barbie dolls and like to play with them. nowadays we even have cartoon series of barbie dolls showing how barbie comes out of the mess in her life...she has always been portrayed as a winner and an encourager too. she has always encouraged girls to be kind, polite and courteous. She is portrayed as an epitome of beauty because when our inner self id so pure people think of us as beautiful human beings. And we all know that barbie is FICTITIOUS and not a real character. Now i would like to ask my worthy opponent that how can a character with so many good qualities prove to be a bad influence????...and now i come to the point you made that barbie is encouraging girls to go for fake mechanisms to opt beauty...actually its not barbie who is acting as the wrong influence it is the atmosphere nowadays which acts as the bad influence.The girls are pressurised to look beautiful but we have forgotten that it is the inner beauty that works and barbie was always in support of this and will always be.we also have many sites which have barbie games in them like
barbie.com
and many others.These games are educational and provide a lot of great fun for kids.
Hence, I would like to rest my case saying that barbie can never act as a wrong influence for anyone.
