Triple love this article from FemPop talking about the new sexification of Rainbow Brite: Rainbow Brite vs Capitalist Pigs
While we’re on this topic, remember Struts, the slutty looking My Little Pony wannabes? http://j.mp/ecq4aD?
But even if you aren’t bothered by the slutting up of 80s icons, I can’t help but wonder why toy companies and cartoon makers bother to do it. Is this some weird side effect of the popularity of Bratz (which I thought were “out” now)? Or is this a case of people in charge of the marketing having no idea what real little girls want? Or, (worst of all) is sexed up really what little girls want these days?
What do you think?
