Do You Want Black Canary Barbie?

Black Canary Barbie is Filth?

Black Canary Barbie is available this September, anyone who wants to send me one for my birthday is welcome to, I just want to say that upfront. 

Religious group Christian Voice said: "Barbie has always been on the tarty side and this is taking it too far. A children’s doll in sexually suggestive clothing is irresponsible — it’s filth."

Don’t they realize that making this statement will almost insure the sell-out of Black Canary Barbie? I bet Mattle will handle the sell out better than Apple did with IPhones. Black Canary Barbie is based on the DC comic book hero. Mattle lost a lot of money on Speed Racer, they had to do something!


So, What do you think? Is BC Barbie wrong? Would you buy it for your kid? Would you buy it for another adult? Is this sublte AntiEntrepreneurism working? Or is this just some lame PR to get sales heated up?

  1. I’d buy Black Canary Barbie for you but not for my granddaughter. Something is wrong when my six year old granddaughter goes to school and her classmate says, “I want to have sex with you.” She didn’t know what he was talking about. She’s back being homeschooled, by her request.

    That is soooo wrong! As a father of two very little girls (1.5 and 3.5) I am so scared to see the new stuff coming out. My big girl just got into the “I love barbie” phase and owns all the barbie movies already, but I draw the line here. What were they thinking? What’s next Playboy pin-up Barbie? Stripper Vixen Barbie? This leaves me to believe that the execs at Mattel probably don’t have kids. Come on! Leather and fishnets on a kids toy? For an adult collector this is cool, but I really don’t want to see this on a Walmart shelf next to Strawberry Shortcake.

    You are aware that this Barbie *is* for OLDER collectors. It’s part of the Black line or whatever it’s called. This isn’t intended for children. However, if you want to see the character the doll is based on, find the Justice League Unlimited DVDs. She is one of the superheroes on the show and is an amazing female superhero, with superior hand-to-hand skills and a great alternative to Wonder Woman. It is not just a kid’s action show. It’s very cerebral, and adults would appreciate it more than their kids. If action is what you (or your child) like, she is someone your can enjoy watching (and not in the gratuitous way).

    The Black Canary barbie is ment for adult colectors. I wouldn’t buy one for a kid, but if you want to talk about innapropriat for kids just look at the Bratz dolls. And they are ment for kids. Black Canary is a DC superhero and that is what she is based off of.
