Totally Stylin’ Tattoos Barbie?

Before commenting, I thought I would go right to the source – the Mattel.com press release archive.  I did a search for “tattoo” and nothing.  Hmmmm….

Well, if you do a Google search, my favorite headline belongs to wagerweb.com (not normally where I go for toy news): Barbie gets a tramp stamp!!

This is my favorite photo:  buzzfeed.com.  Although, I think the “Indonesia” tattoo is worse than the “Ken”….

In any event, I am not going to comment about whether this Barbie is a bad influence on children or a sign of the apocalypse.  Nor, am I going to say all these people up in arms are out of their minds.  Too easy.

I just want to say I think it is an absolutely fascinating choice by Mattel.  Turns out they are sold out almost everywhere….
