    Huh. My two nieces are very much into American Girl dolls, and I could see the "homeless" doll - ok, but for the monies raised/spent on such a doll that do NOT got to a charity is rather bad. Fail.

    I thought of that, but she's more of a gold-digger.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    she comes with nothing but the box to live in! just like real homless people! awesome!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I can't wait for the American Girl Crackhead Edition! They can use the same mold from the Homeless doll, just make the body way thinner and add hooker boots!

    $95, because there's no need to buy the house accessory which is what... $70?

    I would say it's poor in taste simply because it raises awareness for a problem, but does nothing to solve it.


    that and $95 for something that's not even highly articulated or well detailed is a rip-off.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Rich people can't claim the title "rich" without having the poor and homeless to look down on, if we "solved" the "homeless problem" we would all be on the same level, and this "great nation" of ours would prob go right down the drain! as sad as it sounds the homeless are not a problem, they are a vital necessity that keeps this sick perverted way of life going strong.

    it's a very sick way for the maker to get richer.

    Years ago, before we had kids, my wife and I were shopping in a toy store for a charity drive at my office, and I didn't want to be there. We were in the doll section, and I found a packaged set of clothing for a Barbie-sized doll that included sheer panties. See-through. I don't believe they were made by Mattel, though. I never saw anything like that again, and I would doubt my sight and memory, but my wife assured me that she saw them too.

    Thats impressive. I bet if there were a Coach or LV logo they'd sell a ton of them.
