    A while back, Mattel (Barbie) had sued MGA (Bratz) over their Bratz dolls.

    Mattel claimed that the guy who made the Bratz dolls for MGA used to work at Mattel and designed the big headed dolls while working for them and thus, the design belonged to them.

    The courts have ruled in favor of Mattel and after the Christmas season, MGA can no longer sell Bratz.

    MGA is going to appeal, but who knows how that will go or how long it will take.

    Hey, if that's what you want to tell the cashier when you come through with an armful of Bratz dollz... go ahead. I don't think she'll believe you, though

    One doll represents the American culture (Barbie) while the other doll represents a McDonald (Bratz). You choose which one I like more!

    A massive case of serious LOLZ. Now I wonder where are all of the good female dolls that are actually quality role models to girls.

    Heh. I remember back 2 years ago, when my tech teacher told us about her opinions about Bratz. She said "I don't want my children playing around with a bunch of dolls that look like hookers".


    Anyways, HURRAY! Less shovelware for all of us.

    down with Bratz = no more short skirts and tank tops = less girls in my school having huge cleavage showing that get me in trouble every time they catch me peeking = win [​IMG]

    they still have to get rid a ton of things.
