`Busty Barbie` sends the wrong message, complain parents

New York: A `busty` doll in Mattel`s new Back to Basics Barbie collection has raised some parents` eyebrows who find the doll too revealing.

The Barbie "Back to Basics" collection is a new range of the good-old Barbie sporting trendy cocktail attire including little black outfits, off-the-shoulder frocks and tiny strapless tops.

However, one doll is grabbing all the eyeballs - No 10, who`s has quickly earned the nickname `Busty Barbie`.

The African-American doll dons a knee-length black dress with long sleeves and a deep neckline - revealing a huge cleavage.

And some parents are expressing their unhappiness over the doll`s look.

"I don`t want [my daughter] to think she has to be this, you know, busty Barbie who`s constantly wearing heels and these low-cut shirts," the New York Daily News quoted Minnesota mom Andie Whitaker, as telling NBC`s WPTV.

She added: "And that`s really the image I think a doll that you`re going to buy for a child is portraying."

A parent wrote to Examiner.com: "I don`t want my baby growing up to think Heidi [Montag] is her role model."

Mattel has kept mum over the issue.
