It’s official – I am sick to my stomach. This new online “game” for girls ages 9 – 16 is becoming an international hit! If you have daughters, I urge you to learn about Miss Bimbo and talk to your daughters about avoiding the game.
We’re talking about girl gamers leading Miss Bimbo through boob jobs, extreme weight loss, and boyfriend catching (so he can buy you stuff, as the game states). Bimbo dollars earned by players helps them to pay for their plastic surgery, lingerie, and those much-needed diet pills.
Miss Bimbo is going to have parents yearning for the “moral” days of Barbie, whose boobs may be unusually large, but plastic surgery was never an option. The links in this post will bring you articles from around the world – although the game originated in France, it’s quickly becoming an international craze.
There’s just no way around it, a game like this is aimed at setting women’s self images back generations – teaching girls to “become the trendsetting bimbo in town.”
And this is one toy that can’t be recalled.
