New York City Parents Find Nothing Stylish About New Tattooed ‘Barbie’ Doll Body Ink All Over 'Tokidoki' Seen As Sending A Very Bad Message To Children October 20, 2011 11:30 PM NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The newest Barbie doll to hit store shelves is sparking controversy. The doll sports several tattoos, and some parents say it’s sending the wrong message to their kids, reports CBS 2’s Kathryn Brown. Meet “Tokidoki Barbie,” the newest addition to the iconic doll collection. She’s edgy — with pink hair, sky-high stilettos and a cactus-covered pet named “Bastardino.” But it’s her body art that has some parents on edge. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2011/10...thing-stylish-about-new-tattooed-barbie-doll/ ~~~ As as father of a 9 year old girl, I find this disturbing. My 9 year old received a catalog in the mail featuring this doll. I don't have a major problem with tattoo's on adults, but I don't know if i am ready for my daughter to start thinking tattoo's are this mainstream. I threw the catalog away before she saw it. So, am I an over-protective dad, or is the marketing of body art to pre-teen girls acceptable now?
