• If Barbie were an actual women, she would be 5’9” tall, have a 39” bust, an 18” waist, 33” hips and a size 3 shoe. • Barbie calls this a “full figure” and likes her weight at 110 lbs. • At 5’9” tall and weighing 110 lbs, Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia. She likely would not menstruate. • If Barbie was a real woman, she’d have to walk on all fours due to her proportions. • Slumber Party Barbie was introduced in 1965 and came with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 lbs with a book entitled “How to Lose Weight” with directions inside stating simply “Don’t eat.” what a role model!

    I'm torn on the whole Barbie debate. I'm a plus size woman. I have a 5 year old who loves Barbies. I am not a huge fan. She's not realistic...even with a smaller chest, bigger waist, and bigger feet as previously suggested. That's why I will tell my daughter she is beautiful everyday and why I have chosen to be a role model. We eat healthy & exercise.

    @ Brooke, I'm torn as well- while I totally agree with the overall message this campaign is trying to send (not to take the 'Barbie' image- which is undeniably present in todays society- so influentially serious), I also agree with everyone saying that little girls need to have the happy medium of being able to play with dolls like Barbie and still have the self-assured confidence and support to not feel like that's what they need to become. Also, I think we forget that there are all kinds of dolls out there, if you don't want Barbie to influence your children because of the stereotype you/we place her under, choose a different doll.

    I'm 5'10" an I weigh 110. I'm not anorexic... My BMI is 0.4%. And I'm healthy. I'm just pointing out that other than the waist and bust, this isn't incredibly unrealistic. And besides, it's a toy.
