Is this what we want our girls to really be playing with and immitating?
Even the “Bratz Baby” doll – (the one that’s supposed to be younger) wears like, Lingerie!
And just to note, a real human being cannot grow that much hair in like their first 5 years of life!?!?!?!?!?!
So what’s the difference between the dolls above, and the muslim dolls in the shelf? Are the muslim dolls created a real necessity? I think so! Not only are they good role models for young muslim girls, but we hijabifashionistas could learn a thing or two from this new “genre” of plastic toys .. the muslim barbie. ! Instead of boring you with all the info from the inventors of these dolls, I’ll just summarize it – basically they were created by muslim woman and men who saw some kids (be it their own or just some random kids) playing with normal Barbie dolls, and decided they didn’t convey Islamic dress codes and were bad influences on their daughters. SOOOO here they are! Take note of what they’re wearing and haavee fun with this little blast from our past.. I wish they were around when I was little!
Let’s start off with the following; Dara and Sara – the Iranian dolls
I read this article at: www.islamfortoday.com/iran02.htm and…
They called these two dolls, “Irans answer to Ken and Barbie” I’m just hoping these two aren’t dating because although they may look arab, I don’t think they’re following muslim valuuuuueees..
I have to admit these two are cute, but I do think the toy seller ‘Ms. Rahimi’ is a little too welcoming of this doll when she says; “I think every Barbie doll is more harmful than an American missile,”
Umm.. I don’t know about that.. but atleast we know for sure that ‘Ms.Rahimi’ thinks that Ken and Barbie are complete corruptors of muslim childrens’ minds.
I’m not too sure about that however, I mean, I grew up playing with Ken and Barbie and alhamdulilah I’m alright. What do you think about this? Are Barbie and Ken real threats to muslim children.
NOW ADMIRE THE FASHION! heehe
Aww.. is that the muslim Ken? There should be a muslim doll bachelor contest! hahhaaa
I think this one is sooo pretty! Kind of reminds me of the Red Outfit I created! With the red hijab, tunic, pumps and white pants! And I saw this picture AFTER I created the outfit! Talk about coincidental. ANNND talk about how you really CAN use a barbie doll to plan an outfit. Make sure it’s a muslim barbie doll and not a bratz doll however, or you might just be asked, “how much?” OKOK i’m sorry !! apology for that unnecessary comment but yeah. Seriously.
HIJABIFASHIONISTA TIP #4:
Keep your hijab a solid color if the top you are wearing is printed. You can wear a printed hijab however, if the top is solid!
COol! A hijabifashionista tip inspired by a doll!
It looks like an indonisian bride! what else do you expect from an indonesian based doll? How gorgeous! except it has caucasian features.. hmmm (Just accept it..)
Is it weird that I am in love with these outfits? No. Because they’re cute!
OHhhh! This one is sure to be fashionable in the house, but she comes with an abaya for when she goes out! This cccccracks me up! But I love it!
I know my tone was somewhat sarcastic, and I don’t mean to be harsh at all – I really do love the dolls. Actually, last time I was in Oman, I picked up some fulla pillowcases! Hehe and I love them!
How gorgeous is this doll? I wish it were around when I was little! … I want one now though…
