Bald Barbie Movement: As a Mom, How Can You Not Support It?

Bald Barbie Movement: As a Mom, How Can You Not Support It?

I just learned of the Bald Barbie Movement.  I can't even begin to tell you how touched I am by this story.

I'm a mom of a 3 year old little girl that loves Princesses, Barbie dolls, anything girly and frilly.  She has short, super curly, Shirley Temple like hair and gets distressed that she doesn't have long straight hair like her Princess dolls.  

I've never even thought about how little girls bravely fighting cancer must feel. Now I have. 

Why is it that most dolls have long, straight hair? Is this considered the ideal beauty? 

Well, now is the time to make a change! 

Mattel, Hasbro, Fisher Price, etc, please listen to the outcry. Little girls that have short hair, curly hair or no hair should have a doll that they can call their own!

Way to go Bald Barbie Movement for bringing this topic to the forefront!

I'm pleading with all Family Made Simple fans and followers to do two things:
  1. Go to the Bald Barbie page and LIKE to show your support.
  2. Go to the Mattel Facebook page and write a post asking them to please make a bald Barbie doll. 
Thanks a lot ~ xoxox

  1. American Girl seems like a good fit for this initiative. Given the stories/history behind each of their girls they may be more open than Mattel.
