App for Barbie

They should make an app for kids where the kids can scan the barcode on the Barbie doll packaging and make it to where the Barbie doll can be used in the app and so on .

Barbie... don’t buy it

Don’t buy Barbie! Just don’t... It is extremely bad, both for the environment and for your kid’s body images. Even it’s tv series is a bad influence. It can teach your kids many bad lessons and be a terrible role model. Your kids might pick up messages such as racism, gender inequality and they might start trying to be like Barbie. Don’t get it if you want your kids to be good people. There are much better alternatives for kids of all ages rather than Barbie, such as teddy bears or soft toys, for example

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9 ):
Kids say (36 ): won't hurt your kid, but it won't enlighten or entertain them much them, either. Not much makes sense on this site. Seems like a wasted opportunity given Barbie's eternal popularity.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
