I absolutly agree with you.
When i was little, Barbie had all kinds of jobs (Pilot, doctor, i believe i even had a construction worker barbie...). Now, the only Barbies you see are princess, fairy, or extremly trampy American Idol/film star types.
And i especially hate the Skipper family doll, as she still looks about 16 and has a baby. (Not knocking anyone who had children at 16, but it's most defintly a harder life)
I would like to see more career oriented Barbies, and less of this fairy princess crap they've been producing lately.
