Oh My … It’s Burkha Barbie! No, This is Not from The Onion, It is Real … Barbie gets a Burkha Makeover


Hey Barbie … You’ve Come a Long Way Baby, or Not!

Define irony … a charity action to save the children by promoting a doll that displays the subjugation that female children should be saved from.

“I think this is really important for girls, wherever they are from they should have the opportunity to play with a Barbie that they feel represents them.”


What a message this sends little girls

Burkha Barbie, exactly what kind of a message does this send to young girls? What next, barefoot and pregnant Barbie, with a ball & chain attached to the kitchen stove? Playing with a Burkha Barbie that represents submissive behavior? NICE! How exactly does this represent them, remind them that they live in a male dominated society under subjugation? This is what Barbie gets as a 50th Anniversary make over? Some how I hardly thing that is what Stacy London from ‘What Not to Wear’ would have suggested for Barbie.

One of the world’s most famous children’s toys, Barbie, has been given a makeover  – wearing a burkha.

Wearing the traditional Islamic dress, the iconic doll is going undercover for a charity auction in connection with Sotheby’s for Save The Children.

More than 500 Barbies went on show yesterday at the Salone dei Cinquecento, in Florence, Italy.

What on earth are these people thinking and once again we see the dangers of a PC world and not calling a spade a spade. FOLKS, Think of the sick irony involved with this! A Save the Children charity auction with a Burkha Barbie, WTF! As Jammie Wearing Fool states, apparently these pin heads have not given a thought to saving young girls from the subjugation of wearing a hefty bag over their head and body. EXACTLY!!! What’s the matter, “child bride” Barbie did not make the cut?

Great message guys, Good Grief!

Makers Mattel are backing the exhibition which is the work of Italian designer Eliana Lorena.

The auction is part of Barbie celebrations for her 50th anniversary this year. The UK’s biggest Barbie fan Angela Ellis, 35, has a collection of more than 250 dolls.

The company director of Laird Assessors from The Wirral, Cheshire, said: ‘Bring it on Burkha Barbie, I think this is a great idea.

‘I think this is really important for girls, wherever they are from they should have the opportunity to play with a Barbie that they feel represents them.

Weasel Zippers adds the obligatory question … Do they come in sets of four with one Ken doll for the husband?

      I heard they rigged the Barbie Corvette to explode !!! Wonder if yoyo will buy them for it’s kids ???

      I didn’t see the “Burka” Barbie on the shelves at one of the local retail stores last night. Of course, this would not be a “best seller” in the “Bible Belt” anyway, so there’s need to bring the garbage to our local stores or our country. Please keep it in Italy!

      Barbie should file suit for defamation, liable and slander! We should boycott Mattel for buying into such a shameful, sexist charity auction! “Save the Children”, my arse!

      #2- Buster—LOL

      Honestly- this is a complete insult. The Barbie Doll is an American Icon….Agree with #3 Susan above that Mattel should file suit also.

      I don’t think my nieces or nephews will be receiving ANY toys from this manufacturer this year until the powers that be on the Board of Chairman actually grow a set and do something about this!

      REMEMBER 9/11 !! I do not want ANYTHING which resembles glorifying ties to Terrorist countries in my home ! ANYTHING!

      Yoyo, dotrac, ceasu et al—it was bad enough that we had to see OBAMA dolls being marketed. And, yes—as far as any Extreme Islamic-themed things or people go—YES ! I AM RACIST! Why would ANY AMERICAN embrace ANYTHING knowing the lives of over 4,000 Americans died on our own soil at the hands of these types of terrorists? SCREW the KARAN and Screw Extreme Islamic Nations

      ****** 9/11 – NEVER FORGET ********

      P.S. Also it is degrading to see how women are treated in society in some Muslim nations. Have you read or learned about the way they are looked upon almost as shameful and insignificant???

      They cannot even show their face, ankles- get a proper education, must not be allowed outside their home unless in the company of Male family member—and even then there are rules….WALK behind that “Man” with your eyes lowered- do not look another Man in the eye ever. Sold as practical slaves===pimped out at 10-12 years of age??? Are you SERIOUS?? Talk about complete expoitation and severe degredation among your own people???? This is archiac at best and it’s unfortunate that the female gender in general is viewed amongst their own people as unworthy, immoral and UNNECESSARY! Imagine an American woman being treated this way. While equal rights have made great strides over the past 50 years or so in the States—we all know it is still a Man’s world. However, this type of treatment b/c you happen to be born in some of these Middle Eastern communities is cruel and violates every aspect of human rights. Think India also—same in some regions of that country as well. Sad.

      I’m just a little older than Barbie. We did grow up together. She was caucasian back then. It didn’t take long for her to be baked brown and now we have a Burka. What in the world? How much more are we supposed to sit down and take just for the sake of political correctness. Well, I would no more buy a single toy from Mattel ever again. This foolishness needs to STOP and we all need to make that happens.

      i bet every obama supporter has one for their daughter and worship it as their idol.

      What’s next al-Qaeda Ken dolls?

    9. NewGirlBoston on November 23rd, 2009 4:37 pm

      #7- Yah, Dave and how’s this for a mental image?

      All the O-Bots can take their Obama Dolls and play house with the new Burkha Barbie! Pretty soon, they will make a Bin Laden doll as well and the Obama Doll and Burkha Barbie will be partying it up with him in the remote regions of his Pakastinian Cave.

      Please pass the Hoouka! UGH.

      *** let’s end some of the political bullsh*t now and not support these companies who make these ridiculous dolls! An Obama Doll? ARE YOU KIDDING? Bill Ayers doll coming next? wtf! **

      a pelosi burkha that uses the extra unbotoxed forehead skin as a cover.

      How disgusting. Boycott Mattel now. We have to start speaking up LOUD & CLEAR about all this Politically Correct b.s. Where does it all end? How far will they go? It’s time to take our Country back from these retarded liberals.
