Barbie Gets Inked, Parents Mad

Posted on October 21, 2011


A new Barbie designed by L.A.-based Tokidoki comes complete with a pale pink bob, stacked bracelets and tattoos on her neck and shoulders.

The LA Times Reports that parents groups have voiced their concerns about the doll’s new ink and its impact on children on the Today show, Good Morning America and CNN.

This isn’t the first time Barbie’s smooth plastic skin has been adorned with ink. In 2009, Mattel released Totally Stylin’ Tattoos Barbie, which came with 40 small tattoo stickers that could be placed on the doll.

It’s unconfirmed whether a slag tag of ‘Ken’ is part of the new design.
