This Mom Transforms This Doll By Removing All Of The Makeup. I Wish ALL Dolls Were Made Like This!!
Growing up, I was never allowed to play with “Barbie dolls” for reasons that mom wouldn’t explain. It was upsetting, but I had enough toys to quickly forget that I couldn’t have them. I would see them in the toy store and think “one day…” but then I’d walk out with a baby doll or a tub of play dough and my Barbie dreams would be soon forgotten. Since I’ve been a kid, dolls made for little girls have gotten more and more sexualized. From the way they are dressed, the way their makeup is piled on, and even the “scenes” where the dolls hang out are just not appropriate for girls aged 3 – 18. Would you want your 11 year old to put on blue eye shadow, red lipstick, a glittery miniskirt and head over to the club to dance? No, I didn’t think so. This is not the kind of doll that I want my 6 year old to play with. Kids need to be kids first, and this mom understands that better than anyone.
She uses polish remover to take off the doll’s entire face. She uses her artistic skill to add a natural look to the doll. Instantly, the doll goes from being a 22 year old woman to a 7 year old girl, and the consensus is that little girls (and their mothers) prefer these realistic dollies to the manufactured fashionistas. Will this mom make a change in the way these dolls are made, or will the toy manufacturers continue to market these grown-up dolls to our little girls? We’ll just have to wait and see.
