'Busty' Barbie Doll?

Is the new Barbie doll too sexy and too "busty" for kids? That's what wome critics are saying as Mattel releases a new line of the classic dolls, just in time to match her appearance with Ken in the new Toy Story sequel.

The new Baarbie is part of the Barbie Basics collection, and is a Black version of the legendary doll, wearing an outfit that reveals a surprising amount of Barbie cleavage. So many parents are expressing shock at their local toy store and when they seek to order toys online, because this extremely revealing Barbie outfit seems questionable for young girls who are of the age to be interested in collecting Barbie dolls.

One parent though, said they see nothing so bad about the outfit. They are mimicking the dresses their mothers wear for date night with their husbands or boyfriends. There's nothing wrong with that," they said.

A new barbie doll is causing quite a stir and has some parents horrified. "What parent would buy this for their kid?" Andie Whitaker said. "Is that really an appropriate image you want to display for your young daughter?" The African-American doll featured in the Barbie Basics Collection is wearing a very low cut dress with visible cleavage. "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," Whitaker said.
