I thought about how I used to play with Barbies when I was a little girl, and how when I turned about 9 or 10, I was crazy for Bratz dolls. Now that I'm older though, I think back and look at the dolls, and I realize how Bratz dolls look like little tramps. The way they are dressed are so provocative, and their lips look like they have had collagen injections, and not to mention the heavy makeup. Barbie, was a lot more tame and classy in looks, but of course, people complain about her unrealistic body proportions. Just recently, I found out about the Licca-Chan dolls. Licca-Chan has such a sweet look to her, not provocative in any way, and just looks cute.
By the way, here's what Licca-Chan dolls look like, if you don't know about her:
I personally think that if I had a little girl, I would much rather order her Licca-Chan dolls over Bratz and Barbies, if those were the only three choices, because Licca-Chan seems much more clean in appearance and more appropriate for young girls. I think the image that the Bratz dolls project sends out a not-so-great message to little girls (I remember when I was little, I wanted to emulate their style at one point), and Barbies kind of have a possibility of young girls growing up having body issues because they don't have a figure like her's, so I've read. I can kind of see that happening, in a way, but it isn't a for sure thing. Anyways, what are your opinions about these dolls for young girls?

Have you seen Barbie dolls recently? They look like hookers. I'm not talking about their bodies, it's their outfits, and even the way some of them are posed gives off a "come hither" vibe. Great for kids.
Some Barbie dolls aren't too bad, so I would get them for a little girl, but I would be careful about which ones I chose. And I would never get a Bratz doll. The name alone is enough to turn me away. I don't think either one of them is too popular anymore though. My niece and her friends like some other doll that I've never heard of before (not Licca-Chan, but I agree that it seems more appropriate). Regardless, I would never buy a doll for a young girl without putting some thought into it first. I didn't really like dolls when I was younger though, so I think I'm naturally wary of them.1
