Are you playing with the Barbie dolls or are they playing with you? Before we think bout this, here is some informations on Barbie Dolls.

The backgrounding of Barbie Dolls

Factories that produces barbie dolls:

Barbie dolls first appearance was in March 9, 1959 created by Ruth Handler.All Barbie dolls are made in four Asian factories, two in China and one each in Indonesia and Malaysia. Barbie has never been made in the United States.


One of the most common criticisms of Barbie is that she promotes an unrealistic idea of body image for a young woman. Does the society point of view on beauty mimics on the marketing companies point of view on what a barbie should look like?

The bad influence that Barbie dolls have on children

Kids that are exposed to Barbie dolls have lower self esteem and a great desire for a thinner body. Some children that are exposed to Barbie dolls have a desire for a body similar to a doll.
How Does Barbie Influence Body Image?
In my opinion some people that were exposed to Barbie dolls in their childhood have the same desire to have thinner bodies and a body similar to Barbies in the future. Through the influence they had from corporate control products and advertising on beauty. They could be more likely to have plastic surgery.
