Barbie Doll - The ideal Figure?


While no-one will argue with all the popularity of Mattel's Barbie Doll, one area which has raised its fair share of controversy over time is her figure. - Dolls

Many parents from around the world have argued that Barbie's ultra-slim figure represents an absurd standard for the figure. They say that numerous girls mature assuming that they must have the same figure as Barbie or there's wrong together. As i do not take that radical of a stance, I will claim that it could be quite difficult to measure approximately Barbie's standards.

With the measurements of Barbie, she will be over 7 ft . tall, weigh around 125 pounds, and have a type of 32-20-42. Obviously, no woman could conserve a figure that way, but this is when the controversy stems.

Furthermore, Barbie carries a lengthy neck. In reality, her neck is nearly twice how big is the normal woman. Her feet can also be another source of criticism with a lot of praoclaiming that Barbie's feet are simply half the dimensions of an ordinary womans because of foot binding. This is the practice of preventing you from growing by constricting them.

Some have went in terms of proclaiming that the Barbie doll is mainly responsible for their kids for being anorexic from looking to maintain Barbie's figure. I believe that could be a little extreme, on the other hand are able to see each side.

In recent years, Mattel has given inside a little with this issue and widened Barbie's waist somewhat. This occurred across the 2000. Barbie presently has a much more proportioned waist.

Whatever Barbie's figure appears to be, or who is right or wrong for this issue, the real winner with this debate is Mattel. The additional controversy and publicity only allows you fuel sales. I wonder why no person references Ken's figure? - Dolls
