Dolls Get Dramatic "Makeunders" No Longer Look Like Porn Stars

January 24, 2015 1 min read

There has always been a debate around how 'realistic' Barbie's proportions are, and if she was a real person, if she would even be able to stand up. One one level I can appreciate that people were concerned that kids might be all kinds of f*cked up playing with dolls that represented hyper unrealistic beauty standards. At the same time a little voice of reason in the back of my head always responded to these arguments with something like: relax, it's just a doll.  The doll controversy is back, but this time Australian artist Sonia Singh has given the once popular line of Bratz dolls a dramatic "make under" for her project called Tree Change Dolls. She took what the Barbie hating crowd consider "over-sexualized" dolls and scrapped off the excessive makeup and the Go-Go dancer outfits for a more "down-to-earth" look. Singh then repainted the dolls' faces, created new shoes, and stitched together new clothes to transform the Bratz into her perception of what little girls actually look like. Doll Makeunders Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 10.48.02 AM Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 10.48.17 AM Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 10.49.06 AM Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 10.48.33 AM Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 10.48.52 AM The results of her project are stunning, and maybe it's just because I'm a visual person, and I needed to see the side by side comparisons, but I get it now. Why are we giving our little girl girls (and boys) dolls that look like they just stepped off of an Adult film set? How did this become a thing?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
