    Link: 7 Failed Attempts at Politically Correct Toys - Big, uncaring toy companies make toys that handle sensitive racial and social issues? Yeah, this will work.

    I wouldn`t say that all of these are too bad, but pregnant and Oreo Barbies are hilarious. Also the G.I. Joe who is wearing typical army gear from the waist up and nothing but a loincloth from the waist down. Because apparently Native Americans always do that, according to Hasbro.

    The `general public` gets offended over nothing and incredibly stupid. I hate the general public.

    maybe i`m wrong, but i didn`t see too much wrong with the chinese new year barbie (the amazon one, hell yeah, but the chinese one didn`t seem to bad). i mean, making the eyes more `asian` i think would give the doll an odd appearance. and i didn`t even notice the eyebrows until they pointed them out. i mean, lets face it, barbie doesn`t look like a real human being of any race. i think her chinese outfit is cute too.

    I didn`t see anything wrong with the Obama sock puppet until it was pointed out. I just thought it was really cute and I wanted one. Actually I think I`ll order one right now...

    LMAO! XD I loved the pregnant Midge article. That`s some funny shi.t!

    I never saw anything wrong with the Obama sock puppet either. I have no interest in Obama, but I simply saw the doll as a doll. Not some deep-seeded racist spoof. Much like the other people in the world turned into silly Halloween masks and such.

    When I was 6, I distinctly remember my older sister having a barbie that had a removable belly and a baby you could fit inside. Ah, political correctness, you bring back memories.

    I had Midge, and really, there was a whole family. They had a dad, a tommy, a kelly, etc. They even had a town house. Yes I`m defending my second fav childhood barbie, screw off. I had the chinese barbie too, but she wasn`t chinese in my stories, so I guess cracked is right about that one.

    I like how 80% of the post was about the mistakes made from Barbies. Wish my mom got me the Black Oreo Barbie. ]:

    I woulda bought the sock monkey! It was cute! I don`t see anything racist about the Chinese Barbie either, I have Asian friends and I`ve seen their mothers dress like that on special Chinese celebrations.
