Creepy or inventive?
Thu Aug 28 2008
All little girls used to rip their Barbies' heads off (that wasn’t just me, right?!), but we’d always get yelled at and have to spend the weekend picking up dog poo (again, not just me, right?!). Now the folks at Polly Pocket have come up with Pop ‘N Swap Fashion Frenzy, a doll whose head—and legs and torso—you’re supposed to pop off. The idea is that little hands are too clumsy to change tiny doll clothes, so these removable parts make life—and fashion—easier. I’m not so sure I buy it. I just don’t think I like the idea of walking into a playroom postplaytime and seeing little doll limbs all over the floor. That's what nightmares are made of!
