Openminded Barbie

This is very thoughtful. There's a huge petition out there for Mattel to start creating Bald Barbies for children affected by cancer,  Alopecia or Trichotillomania. Since Mattel created a special edition Princess Genesis barbie named after a 4-year-old cancer sufferer, people have been inspired and want to see more.
So far Mattel hasn't responded. I don't blame them, they'll be a hard sell for everyone else on the market... that is if they look like the typical Barbie princess or girlie girl. I think they should give her a motorcycle jacket, a discreet necktatt and black lipstick along with that bald head. People would love it! Adults would even be collecting them!

I hope that these petitioners aren't let down too badly.
Princess Genesis Barbie
A for effort and thoughtfulness, but the hair is just kind of the point with a Barbie.


  1. I think this is a good idea and they should go for it.

  2. Like the two above me, it's a good idea. But like you said, it might not sell to the general public. xx
