I do not think one should approach any idea with prejudice. The initiative is smart, that's how I find it.

I do not think there is some unwritten law restricting barbie and her likes to wear skimpy clothes or to be blonde,or is there one that I do not know of?

In my estimation, the Fulla people should work on the quality of their products, but the initiative itself is appealing.

i think its cute and adorable, but i have an important question. if the hijab is meant to create modesty and not attract attention to a woman, then why is this barbie's face all dolled up, or why do woemn who do wear a hijab wear ones with bright colors, or wear make up, or tight jeans?

i have no knowledge about this topic so forgive me if my question sounds ignorant or idiotic.

A few years back there was a group of women in america who were anti-barbie because they felt it objectified women and were a negative role model for young girls.

This barbie I guess is offering an alternative role model to the Muslim girl.

Not to neglect the fact that there are tons of barbies all over the world and are generically localised to suit the consumer of that region. Hence you see chinese and black barbies and dolls too. Why shouldn't the everyday Muslim girl have one that she can relate to?

So hareega as you well know it has nothing to do with arab men being turned on over a doll and it's insulting to think of it this way.

and Linda, yes the hijab is meant to create modesty but like anything in any religion it is often practiced wrong, e.g. wearing tight clothes for example. But I do not believe there is anything wrong with make up. The hijab does not create modesty on it's own, its not a magic piece of cloth anymore than placing your right hand on the bible renders you unable to tell a lie in a court of law. It is the person and their judgement which creates the modesty, the hijab is merely an external device for others percieve: a symbol.

thnak you

adding to NAS, thank you for you your input, also i would like to say that some people wear the Hijab as a tradition, part of culture clothing and that is why they dont stick to it, but for sure having people not obeying its rules right, doesnt depreciate the Hijab itself in anyway.

Well nas what i found ridiculous is "sara" where her clothes were sewed to her body so you gotta damage the whole doll if you try to remove the clothes. Children just don't think like adults do.
