Mattel – you get a great big thumbs down from me! So barbie can do anything except write code. Thank goodness theres’ a boy close by – he’ll fix everything.
Isn’t she supoosed to be a Computer engineer? I was already upset about the Girl Scout Barbie released earlier this year but now this.
Thank goodness my girls no longer ask for Barbies. because at this point I would say no.
Just a couple of months back I told me girls they could no watch the Barbie epsiodes on Netflix after watching an episode of Barbie Dreamhouse. “Girl” based TV and toys are so very disappionting.
Step it up Mattel! Encourgae our girls, build them up, show them they can be and do anything.
UPDATE: The real update is there has yet to be an update. We — and others — haven’t heard back from Mattel yet, despite increasing negative reviews of the book.
———————-ORIGINAL STORY BELOW———————
It’s taken the media at large many months to catch on, but Amazon reviewers have been up in arms over a book from Mattel’s “I Can Be” Barbie series, I Can Be A Computer Engineer (Mattel created a Computer Engineer Barbie in 2010 as well) for months now. Why? Because Barbie doesn’t seem to actually do anything a computer engineer does, only has the skills to design a game and needs the help of men to code it and heck, she can’t even reboot her computer right.
