My daughter will be six-years-old in May. She’s now been invited to two different Bratz-themed parties.

If you’re not familiar with this new line of dolls, here’s the Bratz Web site. Take a second to look around. It’s disturbing.

The catchy tag line: “Girls with a fashion for passion.” Alas, I think my daughter will become preoccupied with fashion in her own time. I see no reason to get her thinking about it before she’s six.

The whole Bratz world also continues a disquieting trend: The sexification of kids. I find something objectionable to giving my daughter a doll with a visible midriff.

I guess I should take solace from this news.
