The Evolution of Minnie Mouse

The Evolution of Minnie Mouse October 17, 2012

I was really distressed to see this in my inbox from Change.org:

one picture sums it up

Barneys plans to dramatically alter Minnie Mouse’s body – making her a 5’11 size 0 in order to “look good” in a Lanvin dress in the Barneys NYC window this holiday season.

But I can’t say that I’m surprised. The slimming down of toys and images is nothing new; we’ve seen it with Candy Land, GI Joe, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Polly Pocket, and more.

Meanwhile, I signed my name to the petition. Here’s the link to sign yours.
