“Shoes, bags, makeup, clothes,” the valley girl voice sings, to a tune reminiscent of Aqua’s Barbie girl.
It’s a Barbie doll knock-off, with an oversized emoji head, who un-boxes fashion handbags.
It’s a toy that teaches girls that shopping online for unnecessary products is, like, the coolest.
There is nothing to justify this toy’s existence. Everything about it says, “Be a sheep. Be a consumer. Be a stereotypical bimbo Barbie. Buy shoes. Buy clothes. Buy makeup.”
Make no mistake. This is not just a little creative idea for a new toy that someone came up with in a brainstorming session in some boardroom. This is an organized attempt to brainwash children to be consumers from an early age. To be truly vigilant, we should demand its complete destruction.
When I think, “We need to stop all unnecessary manufacturing,” this toy is a perfect example of where to start.
We need to do society a favour and bury this thing deeper in the ground than the E.T. Atari cartridges of 1983.
