This is the concept from a marketing group that wonders whether children should have a choice when it comes to dolls:  Unrealistically built (like regular Barbie), or plus-sized (see above).

I guess I don't have a problem with it, in terms of girth.  If you don't like it, don't buy it.  My issue is the come-hither look and dress of this sturdy Barbie doll.  She looks like she wants to get down with Kermit the Frog.
