What happened Mattel!
Did anyone else notice how the quality in the barbie line has been really bad as of late. I went to my local TRU to look to see if any new barbies came out and i was hugely disappointed in what I saw. They had some of the new dolls but it seems like to me that Mattel is recycling their designs and also their materials. I remember when they use to make clothes that actually looked like clothes a person would wear but now they are cheap looking and i never see any kind of jeans or pants for barbie its always those short little skirts. I usually don't get many Barbie things because of this reason.
Don't get me wrong I mean I plan on getting three of the new hunger games dolls when they come out but that's probably it. I remember reading somewhere that Mattel was actually going to be giving ken an all new body which was a little more masculine and articulated but the only one i have seen so far is the one they used for the Harley Davidson set and Jack from Pirates of the Caribbean or how ever you spell it. I know that Mattel is trying to appeal to little girls but there are older girls who don't like barbie because of this reason. Sorry for my ranting but I use to collect Barbie dolls but I have now switched to mostly action figures because I love how they are more realistic and have more articulation. .......OK I'm done.......LOL
