Comment
  • When talk about “Barbie Dolls”, what comes to your mind directly? Beautiful? Lovely? Colorful? They are toy that brings happiness to girls all over the world. In this poem, although it describes normal features, something got weird. Barbie Dolls are described neat but ignorant in the poem. She’s compliant, doing what the others tell her. And her physical condition was been made of. It looks like that Barbie Dolls are only superficial. Where’s the “real” Barbie?
slide12
In fact, Barbie has aroused many discussions and debates. The first Barbie Doll was made in 1959 by Mattel Company. No matter girls or boys, young or old, almost everyone loves Barbie (at sometime). Nowadays, topics that are related Barbie are many. Such as reification, bodybuilding, love view, feminism and etc. Barbie are not just dolls, “she” has more power than we normally think.
