Usually I’m bitching about those darn “Bratz” dolls that are Barbie’s trampy cousins, but this time I have a little bone to pick with the folks at Barbie. I saw a commercial for this today and I actually did a double take because I couldn’t believe this passed the test and made it to market:
Did you know Barbie® doll has a dog named Tanner™? This pooch is has a mouth, ears, and tail that move with your help! You can even “feed” Tanner dog biscuits! After the pup goes potty, just clean up with a special trash can and magnetic scooper. Good doggie!
Yes, that’s right. The dog comes with it’s very own dog shit that you can clean up with a little Barbie pooper scooper. That’s funny, when I was little, we had our Barbies pretend to go shopping, have sleepovers, or go to birthday parties. And this is what kids want to pretend now? I’d like to obtain a list from Mattel of every girl who buys one of these things and have them come to my house any ol’ time they want to… with 2 dogs weighing over 200 collective canine pounds, we have plenty of shit they can clean up.
