Barbie pathologies: itís all about a doll : Comments

By Binoy Kampmark, published 31/7/2023

Mattel's Barbie has become, courtesy of Greta Gerwig, a talking point so silly it deserves to be treated trivially. But money, advertising, and Mattel, won't allow that.

Unlike you, Binroy I have no interest plastic dolls. And never ever had. My dolls are living dolls that walk and talk without any electronics. Other than that, Barbie has been making Martel billions since the first model hit the market.

Little girls and some big ones have been queuing for decades to get the next model or fashion statement, like Barbie pink for example. Clever marketing and being able to understand the market has underpinned its success.

Dear Binoy Kampmark,

Mate, there is absolutely zero indication you have gone and seen the movie. A young mother I know has and she is keen to see it again.

Perhaps you should go and then tell us what you think and which perspective of the many you have mentioned hit the mark.
