It's Cool for boys to interact with Barbie This Doll is selling out

Barbie Commercial Stars a Boy Because Boys Can Play With Dolls Too
"Moschino Barbie is so fierce."

The commercial for the new Moschino Barbie, a collaboration with the high-end Italian fashion label headed by bad-boy designer Jeremy Scott, stars a trio of children fawning over the miniature glamazon, including one lucky boy (sporting a kick-ass undercut) who deems the doll "so fierce." The commercial was released on Moschino's YouTube page in late October, but in light of the $150 doll being released (and subsequently selling out in less than an hour) last week, the commercial's forward-thinking approach has suddenly become fodder for commentary, with mostly positive reviews.

YES FINALLY! Car Safety Chief Backs Seat Belts on School Buses

Schools sub out bus companies that take their children to school in buses. We buckle up our children in our cars. Why the delay on getting the children buckled up on school buses?! Our children are used to being buckled in - put them on a bus without seat belts and they can not defend their reactions when a crush happens or fall out of their seats on a fast left turn. And they are hopping out of their seats and disturbing the school bus driver. The seat belt law should be for all auto's.

"But it is consistent with NHTSA's role as the guardian of safety on America's roads. It is consistent with decades of progress in raising seat belts in the minds of the public from novelty to nuisance to 'the car doesn't move until I hear that click.' Seat belts are icons of safety."

The announcement launches a series of steps aimed at getting belts in buses -- including new research, funding and a nationwide mandate. Right now, only six states require seat belts on school buses: California, Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, and Texas.
