Personally, I like this judge is doing the right thing. I am sick of going to Publix, Target, the Town Center and nice restaurants and having to see and hear these little Bratís. If the Parents would be parents and teach these Bratís some manners and discipline these Bratís would not behave as they do.
Bratís should be banned.
Barbie has to have the spot light. Bratz stepped on her toes and now she's gotta cry about it. Bratz are just a doll. A PLAY TOY!!! And the name in no means describes the dolls. the movies depict them as well mannered and polite. Girls being REAL friends. Jealousy can be an ugly thing grow up people and find something real to complain about! What cry babies the world has become! Gotta bash someting and forget the children who actually LOVE them. STOP WHINNING!!!!

Sounds like the American way really. Smash the guy who is making the money so that they can then take over. Who owns Mattel? George Bush?

So let me get this straight.......El Segundo based Mattel is upset that their Barbie is slipping in sales and blames the CA based Bratz....The best way for them to increase sales is to stomp out the competion instead of evolving their doll.
Hmmmm, I think I see a trend.
I refuse to change and come up with fresh new ideas so I will blame everyone except myself.
Joe I really thought this was a hoax when I saw the headline, but WOW.

Bratz Dolls Banned!
I think that this whole issue is downright S-T-U-P-I-D STUPID!
I mean how and why could the judge even make that decision!
I know that a worker for Mattel went to MGA Entertainment, but technically, it was NOT Mattel that created the Bratz, it was the WORKER! For crying out loud!
I loved Barbie when I was little and started to get into Bratz...yeah they have big heads and too showy clothes but their just a DOLL! For crying out loud, people! Give it a break!
It is just like when people started saying that Barbie was a bad role model because she is "too skinny!"
She is a DOLL! Come on you cannot honestly tell me that getting rid of a toy is going to change anything! Because the girls that liked Bratz are always gonna like them!
The L.I.V. and the Moxie Girlz Dolls look just like the Bratz so are they gonna ban them too?
Idiots... people can/will do crazy and stupid things!
Ugh! Haters...that is the word for people! They are so dumb, in today's time! They might be book smart but they ain't common sense smart!
Therefore, that is MY opinion on the matter...
P.S. Sorry, if it sounds rude but that is how I feel about the matter.

This is ridiculous especially considering " Alleged Barbie Creator" Ruth Handler stole the idea from Bild Lilli dolls in the late 50's. She went to Germany on vacation saw the Bild Lilli doll came back to America copied it and called it Barbie. Mattel "acquired" =(bullied) the rights to the Bild Lilli doll in 1964 and production of Lilli was stopped. Mattel is a bully and has been since day one. I have been a doll collector for 14 years. I use to collect vintage Barbie's & rare barbies. But I don't like the way they lie about manufacturing a limited amount and then turn around a produce way more. Which significantly drops the dolls value. So I have sold all my Barbie's and now collect Fashion Royalty dolls. My daughter cant stand Barbie's, She loves Bratz, She is going to be devastated. Mattel has been screwing over companies since the 50's. Mattel doesn't need the money I'm so sick of corporate greed now our kids have to suffer because they cant handle competition. Hey, Mattel how about stepping up your game produce better quality dolls! Oh no that would be too easy you'd rather eliminate all competition, So children have no choice but to but your dolls. I hope this backfires on Mattel. Kids these days arent stupid they want quality. Who wants Spam when youve had Steak. Mattel is monopolizing the whole doll market, I say boycott Barbie. Mattel is a shady company I will never purchase another Barbie again. To all the people that believe an inadament object can define your child make them be a slut or hoochie you are sadly mistaken. If you raise your child properly & teach them morals they wont have to look up to a doll. I know many sluts & hoochies a doll didn't make them that way. Bad parenting did
