I was on EBay today and I came across a listing for this Barbie and Ken doll set:
The description for the item read:
**Barbie and Ken ARMY Desert Storm (Camouflage) GIFTSET! **
WONDERFUL !! From the Barbie Collectibles site: "This deluxe giftset features Barbie® and Ken® dolls in authentic desert battle uniforms of camouflage material. Both dolls wear matching camouflage jackets, pants, and vest, green over-the-shoulder bags, and maroon berets. 1993.
I don't even know what to say about this. Why in the world would you give your child something like this? What effect must it have on people if they learn to associate war with beauty and happiness instead of violence and death?
