REST EASY MOMMY BLOGGERS! YOUR KIDS AREN’T SCREWED UP IF THEY LIKE TO MICROWAVE BARBIE.


Porn surfing tip #24: If your keyword search includes the name BARBIE, you might actually get content that pertains to the doll, and not a bubbly, enhanced stripper. Found out first hand at approximately 12:34am last night. And actually I was glad I did. The 2005 Associate Press article was quite the read. It was all about the meaning behind kids torturing their Barbie dolls.
Apparently UK researchers from the University of Bath surveyed 100 kids about toys in general. What they found was that the children had strong negative reactions (hatred, violence, etc.) to Barbie. The top tortures the kids admitted to were shaving her head, decapitation, burning, and my personal favorite – microwaving.

Now if you (mommy blogger) caught your little one nuking Ms. Blond Ambition you might think you’d need to reserve a space on a doc’s couch stat. However, Bath researchers disagree. They simply see it as a sign of an older child using their imagination to discard an “excessive commodity” they have no use for. Not unlike when fat, lazy Americans crush empty beer cans. The Brits’ words, not mine.

  2. I never did that to my Barbies. I just liked using markers to color their hair or apply makeup.

  3. If my kids had destroyed toys, for any reason, I would have removed the remaining toys and not replaced them. Guess that's why my house is crammed full of all the childhood toys!
