Mattel has partnered with pop culture favorite, Tokidoki to make a Tokidoki Barbie. This Barbie is considered a collectible Barbie series.
Tokidoki Barbie has a pink bob,tattoos, leopard print tights, and a Tokidoki purse. She’s also walking the signature Tokidoki dog figure, Bastardino.
While online community seems astonished by a tattoo’d Barbie, she’s already sold out with backorders starting. Parents are worried that this Barbie will encourage kids to get tattoos.
“It’s teaching kids to want tattoos before they are old enough to dress like that,” Kevin Buckner, of Virginia, told a local television station.
Tokidoki Barbie is not the first time Barbie has sported tats. In 2009, she sported tattoos that kids could remove and paste anywhere. Some stores pulled that Barbie after complaints. The other collectible tattoo Barbie was in collaboration with Harley Davidson.
