Barbie Dolls Are OK For Boys Too
Mattel has finally caught on to the fact that little boys also love to play with Barbie dolls. For the first time ever a boy has been featured in a Barbie commercial — and he’s pretty darn adorable.
The ad features a mohawked blond boy playing with his two girlfriends, a black girl and white girl (let’s try and keep things racially expansive while we’re at it) and their well-branded, well-appointed $150 Moschino Barbie Dolls.
“Moschino Barbie is so fierce!” asserts the boy before placing a bejeweled mini-Moschino purse over Barbie’s waiting arm. This boy has more swag than I will ever have.
