Disappointing 26 Feb. 2015

Was expecting an interactive reading experience - this was not at all. Very disappointing. I don't think there is enough "going on" for my three year old.

Vapid, vacuous, offensive and that's just getting started 13 Jun. 2014
By C. Zamorano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I find it appalling that Step into Reading would include this offensive, vapid title in their series. It's hard to know where to start since every single page is puke-inducing.

The "plot" turns around Barbie's two friends helping her pick out the perfect outfit for a date with Ken. All three characters are complete ditzes: "I cancelled a yoga lesson for this . . . or was it a yogurt lesson?" When her friends are starving, Barbie offers them a mint -- anorexia much? Later they are shown gobbling up the box of chocolates that Ken brought for Barbie, so at least it shows both types of eating disorders. It's got that going for it.

Forget about Barbie's Dreamhouse; her closet could house the entire population of several third world countries. And don't forget the entire room devoted to makeup and the "Mondo Barbie Head." Yes, sadly that is an actual phrase in the book, not to mention a shameless plug. One friend comments that every pair of pants Barbie's ever owned is housed here. Really?! Greedy hoarding. Just the sort of values we need to teach more of in the world. And Barbie's friends like her because she's "cool, generous and exactly my size!" because those are the qualities one looks for in a friend.

As for the Step into Reading, one phrase is "rhinestone-studded butterfly barrette." Yes, beginning readers won't stumble with that mouthful at all.

Barbie takes all night to get ready, ignoring the pleas of her friends to leave (we all can sympathize!) and lets Ken wait at the door. Thanks but no thanks, Barbie. I'm not one of those moms who's generally opposed to Barbie, but I am opposed to characters in books who are held up as role models who are greedy, self-obsessed, rude and vacuous. YUCK YUCK YUCK. Find something, ANYTHING else for your little girls to read! And to echo another reviewer: Shame on you Mattel and Step into Reading. Our girls deserve better than this.
