Busty Barbie Doll: Outrage caused, but no Recall yet

It has been reported that a new Barbie doll in the U.S is causing outrage amongst parents in the U.S, over the fact that the doll features a low cut dress and a visible cleavage.

As reported from WPTV, the new doll is available in retailers across the U.S, with Target a confirmed supplier of the dolls.

One parent had this to say on the new dolls: “I doubt my daughter will have it, and I don’t want her to think she has to be a busty Barbie who’s constantly wearing heels in low cut shirts.”

But what are your thoughts on it? Of course there is the arguement that the doll does not provide a suitable learning curve for young girls, but is it really a potential recall problem?

Target has stated that they will continue to sell the new busty dolls, but Mattel, the manufacturer of the dolls was unavailable for comment on the matter.

Give us your thoughts on this story.
