A Step Forward?

Spotted these at Target the other day. Is this a tep in a positive direction for Barbie? Yay for promoting girls having a career but then I noticed how traditionally feminine the career dolls were. A school teacher? A nurse? I hope they have other career dolls like scientist, architect, or stock broker Barbie. I think the most disappointing thing were the little thought bubbles… Take a look, decide for yourself.

    Uh, yeah, what Jennifer said! (She beat me to it)

    Still possibly hoping that more non-stereotypical career barbies will appear.

    Love it! Especially the ‘teacher’ doll. I totally look like that every day =)

    However, an architect or engineer of some kind would be totally beast! (as my kids would say)
