From 2008 and 2012…… Iran no likey Barbie®.

How the h*ll did we miss this ?!?


Video courtesy of The Associated Press, April 2008:



Excerpt of a transcript via MemriTV from January 2012:


Majid Qadiri[Toys] have an evident influence on children.  [It is harmful] to dress dolls in the best clothes of the best quality, in keeping with the culture that children see in cartoons and in the cinema.  But if these are in keeping with our national and Islamic ideology, [our children] will not be subject to a cultural invasion.

This is what the Islamic world is dealing with today.  It has been invaded by foreign dolls and toys, like Barbie dolls and others, which are sold to children.  These dolls should not be bought, because they have an impact on the mentality of children, and when these children reach adolescence and can choose for themselves, they will find themselves in a situation where the invading culture is dominant.

InterviewerYou mentioned, for example, Barbie dolls, which are very popular in our society.  How have the dolls you manufacture been received by children and parents ?

Majid QadiriWe concentrate on making Iranian dolls.  It should be pointed out that it is forbidden to bring Barbie dolls into this country.  We don’t want to import other dolls to Iran either.  If you find these dolls in Iranian markets, they must have been smuggled in.  We want to create an environment that is appropriate for children, in which they can benefit from playing with dolls with value in the cultural sense.  This can give a boost to culture among children, who will not be influenced by the imported culture.


On this subject, there can be only one form of commentary offered.

Only one.   😉



But wait, there’s more……

These kids did it the right way. 🙂

Everything I need to know about Islam I learned at the age of 13 on September 5th 1972.


If law-abiding firearms owners were as unstable and dangerous as typically bitter and clinging Democrats say we are, there’d be no typically bitter and clinging Democrats still breathing.

    It’s getting ridiculous now Kenny, when Islam is banning even Barbie Dolls.

    Do they know there is a Ken Doll as well ? 😀

  2. jahbalon says:

    Shhh don’t tell the Islamists about the Ken doll, or they will be beheading him or tossing him off high buildings.

  3. natureico says:

    What about an El Guapo Doll ?

    Now that would go down a treat with them.

    • Typical peace lovers in many countries have hung / burned numerous effing-gies of His Royal Treasonous Heinieness President For Life Barack Hussein Obama (PBUH)…… Free speech and all that stuff.

  4. Iranians will know true “destructive impacts” when they get some missiles lobbed at them by Israel.
