By 1996, briefcase and a smartphone,Entrepreneur Barbiewould show girls that there’s more to her than a body This avatar has been backed by many ‘real’women entrepreneurs in the US who serve as her ‘Chief Inspirational Officers’ (CIOs) Barbie has been held responsible for eating disorders and charged with offering girls a wholly unrealistic body image (Source: AP) The ‘new’ Barbie Recently Mattel gave in to years of criticism about the dolls’ looks and launched a new line of Barbies with different body types and skin tones The iconic doll will hit the shelves in different shapes from original to petite and from tall to curvy Barbie will also be available in seven different skin tones 22 eye colours and 24 hairstyles But will this negate the ‘negative body image’ created by Barbie Will it make any impact on Barbie’s future sales and the psyche of India’s little girls and mothers Probably not As Priti Nimani says in her study ‘Globalization Versus Normative Policy: A Case Study on the Failure of the Barbie Doll in the Indian Market’ “For Indians the issue goes beyond the potential for instilling negative body images in young females Barbie offends public norms through a way in which her body is hyper-sexualized (even in her slightly changed new avatars) Barbie doll is a silent object that reaches out through her physical characteristics and those characteristics include her clothing her face and the one thing that never changes about Barbie her body Without her body Barbie would be nothing” It is possible that some mothers may be repulsed by Barbie’s looks and some may buy Barbies that have similar skin colours as their daughters but will they also buy Barbie’s lifestyle Answering that is tough The new Barbie dolls introduced in January 2016 Mattel the maker of the famous plastic doll said it will start selling Barbies in three new body types: tall curvy and petite She will also come in seven skin tones 22 eye colours and 24 hairstyles (Source: AP) The Barbie lifestyle Barbie just did not come with perfect face and figure but also perfect hair make-up clothes the works She is what our ‘beauty contests’ (also a borrowed concept) represent – stereotyping the perfect beauty success and lifestyle Once a girl bought a Barbie she was compelled to maintain Barbie’s lifestyle for her doll and for herself That meant keep buying Barbie’s accessories like dresses handbags jewellery make-up kits doll houses (with pools) and of course more Barbies Barbie has a commercial soul and did not just bring fun into a girl’s life she brought ‘unwanted’ consumerism Little girls spent hours and huge money on make-up harmful hair dyes — subjecting their young hair to hair straighteners and curling irons — forcing their parents to spend a fortune on branded clothes The doll has been held responsible for eating disorders and even deaths A typical Barbie doll is 115 inches which at a 1/6 scale would make her 5 ft 9 inches tall Her vital statistics have been estimated at 36 inches (bust) 18 inches (waist) and 33 inches (hips) According to a study by the University Central Hospital in Helsinki Finland she would lack the 17-22 per cent body fat required for a woman to menstruate One UK-based woman spent over $1 million in plastic surgery just to achieve that Barbie look She has become a spokesperson for Barbie and preaches that in order to be fabulous you have to be perfect ‘stereotype’ People have spent millions just to have their houses look like Barbie’s Socialite Paris Hilton’s (who looks as perfect as Barbie) $200000 pink car came from the childhood dream to have a car just like Barbie’s Those who cannot achieve that perfect look and cannot have those material things start thinking of their life as ‘useless’ The looks the accessories and even the material things are stereotyped One teenager writes in her essay ‘This beautiful doll gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “if looks could kill” Thank you The first Indianised Barbie came to India not as Indian Barbie but as Barbie in India (Source: Pinterest) Till date Barbie has failed to charm Indian girls with the Barbie lifestyle (though girls from urban middle and upper-middle classes do have a fascination for the doll but that’s a very tiny portion of the populace) Now revamped will she be able to work her magic on India’s next-gen girls I first saw Barbie in a retail shop in Bangalore when I had gone to buy GI Joe dolls for my sons Frankly I was disturbed by her physique By then I had come back after living a couple of years in Europe but still an overly sexualised doll with reed-thin body and oversized breasts made me wonder: “What the heck is happening to the world” I had no idea that Barbie was not just a doll but she was a ‘lifestyle’ I wondered if I had a Barbie instead of my innocent-looking cardboard dolls what would have become of me This doll had the power to manipulate young minds and endorsed a rather dangerous and unrealistic portrayal of female body Would I buy this doll for my little girl if I had one I was not so sure Come next generation (after mine) Niyati Joshi a 20-something from Mumbai had about seven Barbies growing up She followed the Barbie lifestyle to an extent like when her father brought shoes T-shirts and hair clips from the US for her from Barbie stores She also wanted to have a of the ‘life-sized’ Barbie heads to try different hairstyles but that didn’t happen When asked if Barbie’s unnatural figure bother her “No” she answered “I looked at it just as a doll that looked like one of the supermodels I saw on the television” But did she aspire to look like Barbie ‘No’ was the firm reply “It all depended on one’s upbringing” Niyati concluded When I asked a lady from Pune who teaches Social Justice as well as Justice related to Gender Issues and who is also a mother of a 20-something if she had bought Barbies for her girl “No she replied we never bought any dolls for our girl and Barbie was so adult looking so this doll was out-of-question” Many Indian parents might have shared the same sentiment 20 years ago In a study called ‘Barbie in India: A Study of Effects of Barbie in Psychological and Social Health’ author Suchtra Saha puts forth one of her most interesting findings: “Barbie creates recreates and accentuates already existing divides between the binaries like male-female fat-thin sexy-non-sexy beauty-brain and more From being a plaything Barbie becomes the game maker” The creator of Barbie Ruth Handler thought otherwise Handler had once proudly stated that “parents thank us for the education values in the world of Barbie…they could never get their daughters well groomed before – get them out of slacks or blue jeans and into a dress…that’s where Barbie comes in The doll has clean hair and a clean face…dresses fashionably and wears gloves and shoes that match” Perhaps our little girls have not fallen hook line and sinker to Barbie’s charms They perhaps want to be the game makers 10-year-old Tanya prefers her iPad to Barbie (Source: Medha Bhaskaran) Where is Barbie in the next-generation Nimani further states in her study that the Barbie possesses her own sets of cultural rules and norms for which she demands a most rigorous devotion Barbie lovers must engage fully in the Barbie experience Today’s little girls also have far too many options other than following Barbie like silent lambs; there are other branded dolls as well as brain stimulating toys sports computer games smart phones and books like ‘Harry Potter’ Also Barbie is still out of reach to a major population of Indian girls but even those who have a Barbie or Barbies do not seem to want to follow the Barbie till the end of the world To the gen next (after Niyati): This is what 10-year-old Tanya who lives in Mumbai says MB – Do you have Barbie doll Tanya – Yes about 10 of them MB – Do you play with them Tanya – A few years ago I used to but now I have lost interest Sometimes I just dress them up in different costumes and that’s about all MB – Any of your friends play with Barbie Tanya – Not any more MB – What do you play then at home Tanya – If a few friends come home we play games on the iPad MB – Oh what else Tanya – I also read a lot Harry Potter is my favourite The author is a microbiologist and has worked for food and pharmaceutical companies
