When I was growing up we had pretty much one option and, that was Barbie. Now girls can choose between Barbie and Bratz. What seems to be more popular with the little girls now? Is it Barbie still or is Bratz more popular now?

I think it is pretty even at the moment. I've found girls aged 4-6 like Barbie, and the older girls like the Bratz dolls. Ours have just been given Bratz pj's and they love them! lol. Going to have a hard time getting them washed I think.

I don't know about everyone else but for my 6 year old it's always been Barbie. I collect vintage Barbie myself so she has been around them her whole life. She has never asked for Bratz- which is just as well because they look kind of funky anyway.

I think Bratz are becoming more popular cause I rarely see a Barbie commercial anymore. I would prefer my daughter playing with Barbies because I think those Bratz dolls send a bad message to young girls. Barbie has been around for so long and I think she is a role model for young girls. Don't be surprised when your 8 or 9 year old want to wear hoochie mama shorts and a tube top cause thats what her doll wears.

I have noticed more little girls with or wanting Bratz dolls. I still see a few with barbies but I think the bratz have taken over for now. I see many more of them in the stores and tv than barbies.

Bratz doing well in the stores! - bratz dolls
From what I've seen in the store I work in the Bratz dolls are doing really well. I'm still buying Barbie for my granddaughter though to keep the tradition going.
