Hallelujah!!! No more Bratz dolls!!!

I hate these things!!! I am sooo happy they are gone.

If you love them buy them now, they will be gone after the holidays

Wow! DD was never into them for which I was extremely grateful, she also never did Barbies.

As much as I didn't really bother with them, they were still a decent alternative for girls who weren't into "blond, bubble-head" barbie
Yeah but they should have known better if that Carter guy knew he signed a proprietary agreement with Mattel.

I wouldn't have minded so much if A) the whole foot didn't come off, that was just weird and B) if they didn't look like such Hoochie mamas.

Hopefully they will come up with something else before DD turns 12.

OT - Tell your mom and Dad I said hey and have fun at the party!! Sorry we're going to miss you, DH's mom is in the hospital and he is in Ohio so he hasn't been to see her yet.

Thank goodness. I dispise the dolls and was going to forbid them for my daugher when she became old enough. They were a little to trampy for my liking.

Bratz are not going anywhere they just will not be marketed by mca anymore. All rights are now going to mattel to market. Yes they are a little trampy but my daughter has lost all interest in barbie and ken.


and yes the whole foot thing and the male bratz are a lot suspect.
