    شخصيا استاذ وائل ارى ان هذا ايجابي حيث ان احتذاء
    البنات بالالعاب التي تتوافق مع ديننا و عاداتنا افضل
    من التقليد الاعمى لمظاهر الحياة الاجنبية مهما كانت بساطتها
    حيث ان الالعاب تعتبر من اهم الوسائل التي تؤدي الى تطوير شخصية الطفل و التأثير فيها

    Barbie was the star of my toys back in the old days….and personally i never saw her naked when taking off her clothes, but this version of fulla makes barbie and all the other toys look naked and open kids eyes to that issue!!! so i prefer the good old Barbie :)

    tab3an akeed we need to dress the poor doll with plastic to hide her natural skin colour and make it look funny and ugly so our kids wouldn’t be sexually attached or affected by a piece of plastic!so now we are back to the stone age where we consider a statue a god! and be afraid of it! so next step is burning all the barbie dolls ever existed and start a war on the barbie world!

    Aren’t both considered mshala77a by local standards?? what if the girls’ brothers saw either undressed.. or worse still, what if they decided to play with them?? isn’t that mafaten or something! The clothes, better, the 3abayah should be super-glued to fulla’s body! The kids wont care, the little boys will make fulla and Muhsen (it’s only a matter of time till he comes out, and would probably be completely naked under HIS 3abayah, and maybe at some point Rima, Rawan and Layla would be introduced as second, third and fourth wives? Fulla is all about diversity isn’t it?)kiss, fully clothed or not!
    On a different I like the idea of a local looking doll, something the girls can better relate to (although i never thought Arab/Muslim kids had problems relating to Barbie), My problem is with emphases that it should be covered up and this whole idea of “protecting the Arab/ Muslim child”! Finally, she should be made to look more Arab Khaleegy(judging by the advertising, that seems to be the target market for it) , because apart from the covering up, Fulla doesn’t look very Arab, hmmm maybe a bigger bust and bigger waist would look more realistic?

    Lol @ darya… you really have issues. Take it down a notch or two. I thought only the diehard conservatives use such a tone, but I guess we have such people on both sides of the fence

  7. MommaBean Says:

    Interesting look. But, to be fair, you’re using a knock-off Barbie. Barbie dolls wear panties too. So, they’re half covered :). Even we Westerners want our kids to think modesty is appropriate (in small doses apparently). As a Mom, I’m very glad that the Barbie/Fulla experience has not extended to buying undergarments. Yikes! Imagine the added expnse and requests for help…

  8. darya Says:

    @ Faisal
    I was a bit sarcastic! Come on someone is telling me that the doll I grew up playing with should be covered with a plastic piece! From another point of view, I think is sad that they only focus on the conception of (the west is a devil) and we should protect our kids from it! Instead why not creating our own things, our own games that will have positive effects on our kids… instead of opening their eyes on hidden things and things that they are not supposed to know at this age! Is afraid faisal it just a tone of disappointment that you are hearing not defense!

    Nas had in my view the best answer :)

    To otherwise I never liked Barbie. Of course I had some when I was a little girl. But I didn’t play with them… OK, I confess, I was one of those girls who torned down their dolls heads! xD
    Well, now I think Barbie is the symbol par excellence for anti-feminism. She is to blame for girls whose favorite color is pink of childhood, the cats are cute and are convinced that their only purpose in life shopping, of course next to her husband and children themselves, is. Similarly, I believe it with Fulla.
    These dolls are made for girls, to the time in which we can influence them to impose a role.

    OmG… Now I bored you enough!
    What I really wanted to say was that for me Barbie and Fulla the same.

    Finally, lest you think I were a bitter old Women’s libber: Women who join the army, should have to cut the hair!^^
    Allright then I’ll confess to you yet that I’m only thirteen.

    OK!
    End of announcement.
