Tokidoki Tattoo Barbie. {Yay or Nay?}

Who knew that our child's iconic Barbie would someday be tatted up? It seems like the perfectly prissy doll has finally hit a rebellious streak with Mattel's collaboration with the Italian label Tokidoki.

Tokidoki® Barbie® doll is always ready for cutting-edge fashion! She pops on a pink miniskirt, logo leggings and black top with signature skull heart and bones, carries a large bag from the brand, then adds bracelets, a belt, and sky-high sparkly silvery shoes! This funky fashionista features trendy tattoos and a pink bob. With cactus friend, Bastardino, by her side, she’s ready for fun in fashion-forward form!

Even though the Tokidoki Barbie is made for adult doll collectors, I can see why some parents might be outraged that a child's doll--especially Barbie, who has been an American icon for the last 50 years has tattoos, but honestly there are a lot of parents with tattoos out there. So who cares?

Their might actually be moms out there sporting pink hair and tattoos like this, and wouldn't it be nice that their children finally have a doll that looks like "mommy" much like a "Doctor Barbie" for a daughter whose mom is a doctor?

Honestly, this Barbie might be a great way to teach our children about social acceptance. Just because someone doesn't look like you or have a similar lifestyle does not make them a bad person or a bad example. So what if Barbie is now rocking pink hair and some serious ink? If you don't like it, don't buy it. I'm more concerned about her mixing leopard tights and a pink leather mini.
