Dear Mattel

To Whom it May Concern at the Barbie Factory:

Please stop manufacturing clothes for Barbie that can be removed in less than a minute by a two-year-old, yet take a thirty-three-year-old woman ten minutes to put back on. You are wasting my life. Unless you think it's fun to have a naked doll party in your living room every. single. day.

And, for God's sake, just paint the shoes on!

Sincerely,
Evie's Frazzled Mom

Those shoes have been coming off (and getting lost) for at least 30 years. I think they do it to mess with our minds.

I will sign that petition as well! I think Barbie pants should be illegal.

There is actually a naked doll party going on in my dining room at the moment! Because I'm mean, and refuse to keep putting the clothes back on.

How funny, I guess they are still making them the same from when I was a kid, and you could never ever find the shoes.

Ya'll have a greatly blessed day!!!

While we're on a Barbie rant...Can Mattel make normal sized, averaged proportioned females as well?!?! come on now! after all these years, you'd think that would happen.

Alexandra said...

LOL!!! Why are the shoes on every doll such a challenge?

I second your suggestion for painting them on.

You crack me up. I don't deal with these problems, but I would like toy makers to make toys that won't be broken by boys in less than a month!
