As an anti-fur activist I find the idea of buying real fur clothing for dolls offensive. Children can’t make informed choices and dressing dolls in genuine fur gives the wrong message about fur.
There is nothing glamorous about wearing the fur of another creature!
A while back INFUR magazine promoted real fur dolls’ clothes, as seen in these photos. It seems that unethical designers sell these items separately from the dolls.
Fortunately, Mattel Inc. clarifies that its Barbie is “a friend to animals” and only wears fake fur.
I still think that this promotes the look of animal fur clothing.
What do you think?
