    The average Barbie customer is going to see the pretty dress, the cutie pet, and Barbie's very pretty hair. Whether it's Mexico Barbie, China Barbie, Denmark Barbie, Australia Barbie or, as the one panelist who seemed to remember what it's like for a child to play with toys suggested, perhaps someday Palestinian Barbie, the diverse pretty outfits and diverse cutie pets are all that matters to little girls.

    Do other country themed Barbies come with a passport? Is there an American traveling Barbie with a passport? Would it be stereotypical to have a blonde california Barbie with a chihuahua? Girls just tend to love little dogs. What if there was a French Barbie with a toy poodle?

    I really think this is more "News-worthy" than Barbie....

    Sanford, N.C. — Sanford police say they are investigating a classified advertisement with photos on eBay that purports to sell a 2-year-old girl for $125.

    The ad, appearing with the title "Cute lil [sic] Mexican girl,” claims a Sanford address and appears to have been posted Thursday under the Dogs & Puppies section of the classified site. It was taken offline, however, around 12:30 p.m.

    The seller claims to be the girl's mother, who is in need of money because the father "is not in the picture."

    "Willing to rent her aswell [sic]," the post reads. "Comes with her own SSN and with a month supply of food. She Is Very Sweet And Is Really Smart."

    The ad continues with the seller saying she decided to place the ad because she is jobless and needs money.

    Police declined to comment on the ad or their investigation. eBay could not be reached for comment.

    As a mother, I find that a news story about Barbie is small in comparison to an innocent human.
    The above article was a very small Byline on WRAL NC's website this morning. Please find out more regarding this story. I personally hope this 2 yr old is not with the mother...ever. Things like this should be your focus...not dolls with Mattel.

    So, big deal, you have white barbies, you have black barbies and now you have Mexican barbies, again big deal, it sounds more like a marketing ploy then anything else and this one at least has a passport so she is not some wet back who just crawled under the fence to get here.

    This whole article is a circlejerk. Apparently, there is a whole series of dolls with their own passports – CNN, once again, took the initiative to 'make' news, and highlight one particular doll, saying it's "'jarring' to see a Mexican doll with papers", but not mention any of the other dolls with passports of their own (not even mentioned here, at least not in text.)

    This doll is part of the "Dolls of the World" series and they all come with passports. I don't see anyone getting their knickers in a knot over the Spanish Barbie. Seriously, talk about making up a story where none existed before.
