I had a similar concern and could not find an alternative. Children use dolls to imagine what they should look like. Rather dolls should be made to look like them and should help them think about good role models - who in a fun way teach about health, sports, science and literature.

i too am worried. i stopped buying barbies. now my girl,5 is obsessed with disney princesses. she says she wants to grow up and be a princess. though it is entirely untrue. i said princesses live only in fairy tales and they don't do anything to help people. she wants to be a princess and marry a handsome prince and live happily ever after. i am confused where did i go wrong? now she is obsessed with how she looks. she wants her hair down all the time. she wants to wear dresses and not pants. pls help me anyone.

its natural for a boy and girl to be obssed with certain thing in life. certain girls are obssed with barbie while certain boys with spiderman/superman plastic toys. even men are obssed withcertain things like dress, hair style, or music,or body building. however what as a parent we should make a child understand ,is that ,toys cant be human beings and should be treated as toys. how would u do this? here is where one has to use his common sense and convince him/her

my daughter is obessed with barbie and disney princesses and any doll. i don't find it disturbing. we had dolls as kids and i think that it is role playing and all these are phases of growing up. most girls play with dolls so why is it so disturbing to some. barbie is a mature figure diplaying how a mom looks in a child's eye. when a child plays with a doll they are displaying all the qualities of what she sees in her mother. i find that quite flattering actually. it is not the doll the child is obessed with it. i think parents should encourage creativity and imagination in our upcoming future leaders.
