That's one of the new Bonner Bros. Barbie so yes it comes with a weave and some Pump It Up. It also comes with a little girl barbie and she got some either bright pink or blue clip ins. I hate every second of this!!
the MATTEL company doing is mimicking how they see black females rocking they hair...
have yall scared to show yall real hair....
if i offered to pay $1000 to one of yall to ROCK yall natural hair for a month with twists, braid outs, bantu knots, etc...half yall would tell me to kiss yall asses.
if the MATTEL company would see different images from the black females then they would able to market black barbies with different hair selections
there is a huge wave of balck females that is proud to rock natural do's..but we are outnumbered.
Doesn't bother me at all. What bothered me was when they had all the ethic barbs and the black one look like sheet....For the record Si phucking what if Black women want to wear weaves....White women wear them too! I'm gonna rock what the PHUCK I want to rock natural or artificial to the day I die....it called freedom of choice....I'm in America.....!
The black barbies have hair pieces just like the white barbies, so the young girls can have variety with their dolls. MTO, you all need to stop fabricating racisim because when something real happens, no one will want to hear it from you. Your stories feed ignorance when they should be cooking for intelligence. I'm done with this site.
MediaStankOut, why are you SO SURPRISED? Don't more than HALF of the no-talent WHORES you feature here daily have WEAVES?????????? Aren't you the first ones blasting on anyone whose weave isn't ON POINT? And what do you think you're feeding CHILDREN with the BULLSH!T you post here daily?
As a black mother I'm not offended at all. My daughter actually wants this doll and I'm going to get it. For those of you that don't know, Mattel hired a black woman to design barbies for black girls and she came up with three different shades and everything light, brown and dark. I like it because my daughter can learn black people come in all shades and each is beautiful. Far as this doll coming with a weave, I have no problem with that either. I've worn a weave before and lots of people little girls see on tv wears a weave also. What's the problem? Most of you people complaining probably have worn a weave too. Again this a black woman that designed the doll not a white person. They even have some that come with Baby Phat, RocaWear, and Pastry clothes (supporting black clothing lines). I know all this because my daughter is a huge barbie fan.
It's actually cute and this is what i call "stereotyped" but in the other hand African Americans shouldn't feel any type of way cuz nowadays what do white girls look like? BIG AZZ CLIP ON WEAVES, CONTACTS, TAN/SPRAY TANS, AND FAKE AZZ TO GO WITH EVERYTHING
My friend teaches 3rd grade and just the other day we spoke on HAIR
in little black girls. ALL of them wear weaves and too tight braids in her class and when
they take the weave out their hair is about the size of HALF her pinkie
finger. When I was little we had LONG pigtails. These ratchet mama's
take the shortcut and put sew in's in babies hair thus the reason this
doll has weaves - it's the TRUTH!
@Ransomed, I see a lot of little girls around my way with weave in their hair too. Sad because by the time their in their 20s their not going to have any hair to hang anything off of thanks to their mama, let alone make a ponytail of their own.
WHY THE F.UCK SHOULD SHE NOT COME WITH A WEAVE??? LMAO NAME HOW MANY BLACK CHICKS HAVE NATURAL HAIR.....OH I THOUGHT SO LMAO.WAY TO GO WHOEVER IS MAKING THE DOLL.YOU GUYS ARE PATRONIZING THE WEAVE INDUSTRY (OR WHATEVER IS INCHARGE OF YOUR WEAVE AND WIGS YOU ALL PARADE AS YOU REAL HAIR LMFAO #DEAD) AND YOU DON'T WANT A DOLL MADE ABOUT IT???...NEWS FLASH --THEY NEVER TOLD YOU TO USE WEAVE AND WIG IN THE FIRST PLACE...WAY TO GO!!!
@mrsrich1, first & foremost women of color are not the only race to wear hair weave. Now we are the only race ridiculed for it. Now if they have a black/brown doll with weave & not a pale pink or pasty grayish color doll with weave that I view as a problem. Racism in this world will never end until we can figure out why the black man is hated so.
Wow how ignorant. Barbie's hair is fake. & they been had extensions for barbie but for the white dolls. I guess they're just now putting extensions for the black dolls. White women wear extensions as well. Such as Paris Hilton in fact Paris has her own line of extensions. Britney spears & the kardashians wear extensions as well. If u don't know anything about cosmetology then please stfu. Not every black woman wears a weave. That's like me saying every white girl does meth & has fake boobs or every Hispanic girl has a baby at age 13 & so forth. Michelle Obama doesn't wear a weave neither does Oprah & so forth. Women can wear weaves if they have short hair just like u men take sex enhancement pills to help u in the bedroom. Or Viagra. I can go on forever. U ppl eat ignorance for breakfast & bullshyt for dinner.
Its crazy a few months ago ppl was complaining about not seeing so many black dolls in the store,now when we have a black doll that many of our kids can relate to,It becomes a problem.Not only does that doll represent black ethnicity it represent our black culture.Twenty years ago you could walk in the toy store and count on all finger and toes the amount of black dolls on the shelf.so many ppl tend to complain about the things they should be embracing.
Growing up my sisters and i had at least a hundred babies between us, and several had some type of extension for her hair. In fact, almost every doll we had came with her own brush. Hair is almost as important as clothes for a doll to a little girl. By the way, majority of our doll were white, so its not a race thing.
LMAO while some women wear weaves because of short hair or hair loss etc,....there's a jillion more that have a FULL head of healthy hair, and choose to wear the weave shiit because it's "fashionable" so please miss me with that bullshiit. The Barbie in the picture has a full head of hair too. This isnt "cancer patient" Barbie that came with a wig or hair to hide an uncontrollable medical condition. Its Barbie with extra hair because it has become common to recognize that people wear weaves...I mean extra extra common to wear in the 80's women tried to pass weave off as their own hair. Now? Its like "i got some new hair today".....etc.
I wear my hair natural, but I will rock a wig and a weave..who cares. I like the hair color..what is that a 27?This is not an issue, nor is it racist. It would be racist if only a few Black women wear weaves and thus perpetuating the stereotype, but we all know Black women who wear weaves, extensions, wigs, etc. I'm sure in the 70's they had a Black barbie that rocked an afro, because back then the majority of Black women wore an afro. The doll is cute.
I don't understand why ya'll all in a rage for. So many times I hear people bitching that they can't stand how there's no representation of this or that, now they gone out of their way and made a REALISTIC Barbie and people want to be offended? Please then stop wearing weave if you ashamed of it. Also it's not just Black people who wear weave anymore...umm know someone called Jessica Simpson? She's got a line just for White girls, so don't like it? Don't buy it.
We really need to let weaves go. Honestly. It's becoming more difficult to identify an entertainer that does not have a weave. My daughter says," I want hair like Beyonce." I keep reminding her that it's a weave or a wig. I have to tell her over and over again that her hair is beautiful just the way it is. She doesn't need to straighten it or cover it with a wig.
thats a damn shame! look how america looks at black people smh & now they tryna send that message to our children (the only people that buy black barbie dolls) we gotta do better..
follow me i follow back @TheRealGuapo
*sigh* they dont make black barbies individually without the white counterpart. they have several models of "exstention barbies" and the set includes a blonde, brunette, black and asian barbie, always.
ITS NOT ABOUT DA WEAVE.!!! ITS DA PUMP IT UP... DAT SHIT IS NOTHING BUT A STEROTYPE.!!! NOT ALL BLACK FEMALES USE DAT... I MEAN REALLY WHO WANTS THIER HAIR CRUNCHY AND HARD AS A ROCK. DAMN DA WEAVE.!!! WHY SHE GOTTA COME WIT A BOTTLE OF PUMP IT UP.!!!
'cuse me but....ALL BARBIES WEAR WEAVE!!!!! IT'S A DOLL!!!! THEY'RE PLASTIC AND THEY DON'T BREATH AIR OR GROW HAIR THUS THE HOLES IN THE HEAD WHERE HAIR WOULD BE IF THEY WERE HUMAN. which they are not...sigh...why is this news?
lmfao that shit is funny tho no lie.its a shame but shit i got a bottle of pump it up gold on my desk right now cas i just did somebody nair haha. (if u live in houston hit me up @bri_nicole ill do ur hair too.)
well...isnt that what black women use? i dont get it! majority of black women use weaves and they get mad when they make a barbie that has one? what? own it and who cares what people say. white barbies have fake hair too...
Why would anyone be offended when the hair weave industry is consumed by more than 80% from black women alone. Not only are they tricking for it,putting it on layaway in the salon and judging each other on the quality of the yack in their heads, but now they are doing smash and grabs in the stores stealing it selling it on the black market. So with this latest marketing technique they are just targeting a whole new generation.
This is not an actual Mattel Barbie you idiots! This is a Bonner Bros product. Half of yall trippin bout her having some weave & spritz...but yall would really be ready for war if she had an afro huh? Make up yall mind! Stereotypes are just reflections...If you gone get mad about the truth being portrayed then do your part to change how we're represented. Otherwise STFU! The doll is hilarious to me!
Now 90% of these bitches leaving comments got a weave in they head typin bitch shut the fuck up you slap yo shit on in the morning to and don't do shit to what's underneath til your balding on the sides SMH

this is NOTHING more than a PLOY to get BLACK bloggers INCENSED! The original WHITE Barbie has HAIRPIECES, a hair salon, etc. I'm more concerned with the BARBIE image---it gives little GIRLS a FALSE sence of SELF---moving ON! If I had a daughter I would buy her an American Heritage DOLL---that is all!
I've seen white barbies with clip in weaves. Black women wear weaves there's not racial or mean spirited about this barbie. Its like how they made emo barbie last month with tattoos, nothing is wrong with it. Some of yall are too quick at looking to get offended, then when you are you go about degrading your own race. Stop hating over a damn doll, it's just a toy not something to be argued over.
I don't see what the problem is. We be puttin weaves in our girls' hair at the age of 3. Why are ya'll acting like this is SOOO bad??!! A young black girl would LOVE to play with her black barbie's hair and put weave and all that bullshit in her hair when she's playing with her. STOP TRIPPIN! Ya'll gettin mad for no reason.
NOWADAYS, CAUCASIAN WOMEN WEAR WEAVES JUST AS MUCH A BLACK WOMEN SO WHY THE WHITE BARBIE DOLL DON'T HAVE A WEAVE? JUST BECAUSE YOUR BORN WITH WHITE SKIN DON'T NECESSARILY MEAN YOUR GOING HAVE NICE THICK HEALTHY HAIR. IF THAT WAS TRUE THEN CAUCASIAN WOMEN WOULDN'T NEED A WEAVE..
SO WHAT I GOT LONG CURLY HAIR DOWN MY BACK AND I STILL WEAR WEAVE
IT GIVES ME THE OPTION TO WEAR IT SHORT, LONG, OR WITH COLOR WITHOUT MESSIN' UP MY REAL HAIR
I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD WEAR MORE WEAVE/WIGS
IT PREVENTS YOU FROM DAMAGING YOUR HAIR
BUT YOU GOTTA WEAR YOUR REAL HAIR SUMTIMES THO' :)
Stop wearing so much frikin weave black women....the doll comes from you...I'd never let a weave or wig touch my head and my hair is down to my back, I don't need nasty dog hair in my head or a relaxer to style....but every other black girl has some obviously shitty fake hair on...to caramel chick....we don't get lice, our hair has volume, it never gets flat, and water doesn't phase natural styles....we all have pros and cons...you dismiss your pros and acknowledge white pros without even considering the cons, you're brainwashed......just learn how to take care of your hair...you'll see your hair is not bad like some people claim...that's the issue black people listen to too much propaganda from whites and their media...if you hate the doll, you should hate yourself as well for making it a reality. Like any white, if you take care of ur hair and ditch the shitty horse hair, itll grow...there's no such thing as "good" hair or bad hair...its all the same, dead skin and protein...its how you take care of it that matters
