The makers of Barbie recently teamed up with a fashion label for something called “Moschino Barbie”. (Pronounced Moss-KEEN-oh) And their new ad is the first Barbie commercial to feature a BOY playing with one.
It was posted on YouTube two weeks ago, but it’s making the rounds now because the magazine “The Advocate” linked to it.
I’m not even sure what Moschino is or means. However, as a Father to a three-year-old, I have no problem with my son playing with Barbies. Is this commercial over-the-top? Sure. But if he wants a “Moschino Barbie” for Christmas, that’s what Jenn and I will be buying him.
What do you think?
