Ruined by Barbie

This is not a question about Barbie's affect on society as a whole. It is a question of if you think *my* collection of 25-year-old Barbie dolls is going to negatively impact my two-year-old, who recently found my stash and loves playing* with them.

They are not in the best of shape. Time has been...cruel.

Some of them look okay, if slightly dated. High tops and denim jackets? Oh yeah.

A few,  however, have suffered from some mild amputations, which I can assure you only minimally affects their pursuit of happiness.

I'm sure there's a big, ol' gray area here, but just go with your first instinct on this poll.

Poll #1558143 Barbie Dolls

Will playing with these Barbies at two years of age negatively impact my two-year-old?


*Note that playing consists of taking them out of the box and putting them back into the box. A fun game that can last for hours.

It depends a lot on how you frame it as a parent.

"You see, Barbie just had a little accident. Her head was removed from her body, but she still carries it around with her in her hands. The moral of the story is: when you grow up, don't become a Rocker. Become a veterinarian. Or better yet, a neurosurgeon."
