Tattoo barbie makes parents cry

Parents in California are very upset that Mattel is selling tattoo barbie.

The Barbie comes with a set of tattoo stickers that can be placed anywhere on her body and a tattoo gun that allows children to stamp temporary tattoos on the doll's clothes and on themselves, KVOR-TV, Sacramento, reported Thursday.

"I think it's attracting kids too young that want to expose parts of body to show off tattoos," Sacramento-area parent Jen Alcayaga said.

Some parents said they find the doll relatively harmless.

See, when there are toys that I don't like I don't buy them. Who'd of thought that parents could take control and say no.

Besides, temporarry tatoos aren't exactly new or controversial. They give them out at churches, to pre-schoolers, kids put them on their hands. . .

I'm with you; no one is forcing any parent to buy this toy for their child. You don't like it, don't buy it. If enough people don't buy it then a clear message will have been sent to Mattel.
