    that will be the marketing strategy when there is an oil shortage again since the plastic those toys are made out of will increase in cost

    And in the end, it is those millons that get purchased each year that matter to Mattell. Barbie is one of the the most successful toys ever, and if other variations sold as well they woud be produced. Some are, and some have been tried and failed.

    This. The fat one is probably less healthy, but the skinny one is unhealthy enough. And it is harmful to teach impressionable girls (and boys for that matter) that Barbie is the ideal. Do an average, realistic Barbie.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Remember: The day before hijacking the planes, the 9/11 terrorists went for an extensive tour through several strip clubs.

    It seems like being just about to blow yourself appart gives you a right to doing things that are "haram".

    Sure go ahead and make thatplus sized barbie and put it right next to the other barbie and sit back and wait for those sales to rack up. Heck someone should try to steal some of this untapped revenue and make a plain Jane doll with glasses, no make up, bad hairdo, and not as fat as miss barbie plus there, but still with some extra padding. I am sure there will be ample sales to make a killing

    I think chunky Barbie will be a harder sell because it'll be a bitch to find clothes that fit her!

    Yes, USA and Sweden are very similar cultures but in that way they are very different. You're not going to find little kids in Sweden with toy guns or toy soldiers. War is not something kids should be dreaming about.
