I am sure everyone has heard about the lawsuit that was going on between Barbie (Mattel) and Bratz (I don't know who makes them). I think it was yesterday that a judge ruled in favor of Mattel (yay).
I will be ecstatic when the Bratz dolls are finally off of store shelves. They set a horrible example for young girls. especially since children happen to be very impressionable (that goes for both girls and boys). It is also very appalling that any parent in their right mind would even think about buying those trashy dolls for their child.
At least Barbie has held various jobs throughout her existence (i.e. doctor, veterinarian, teacher, you get my point), while Bratz have done nothing more than set a poor example for today's youth.
In case everyone forgot, Mattel even changed the size of Barbie's waist from an hourglass, to something a little more believable.
