Do Little Girls Really Need To Know About The Joys of Waxing, Plucking, & Shaving?
I dunno about you but I was about 14 before I ever picked up a razor and way older before the waxing and plucking began!
Parents are in an uproar about the joys of waxing, plucking, and shaving thanks to Mattel.
Clawdeen Wolf, one of Mattel’s Monster High Dolls, and daughter of the Wolfman supposedly says that waxing, plucking, and shaving are a full time job for her and a “small price to pay for being scarily fabulous”. Hey, I can’t make this stuff up, it’s on the back of Clawdeen’s packaging box!
As for me I couldn’t agree more, it’s a full time job keeping my hairiness at bay too! But in all seriousness do we really want that message out there to little girls already? Is it ok to break the news to them at an early age that someday they’ll have to deal with “hairy” situations?
Mind you no one is safe from Mattel as they also have Shaving Fun Ken…
Honestly? It worries me more that little girl’s will be digging around mommy and daddy’s stash to locate a razor and God forbid take it to their faces or legs and hurt themselves.
Thanks Mattel. Something else to worry about!
What about you?
Would you be comfortable gifting your little girl a doll that “endorses” a shaving routine?
