Bratz versus Barbie

Bratz rocking the world

We’re on a roll for reporting Mattel’s various lawsuits.  The toy giant was awarded $100 million in its Bratz ownership suit against MGA Entertainment.  The hip fashion dolls were designed by Carter Bryant while he was under contract with Mattel.

Bryant is most famously known for his Barbie design work, escpecially the high-class Barbie series from the early 2000s known as Grand Entrance Barbie.

When Carter left Mattel, he took his Bratz sketches with him.  And that’s what Mattel won the rights for, as well as the sizable damages from Carter’s new partner MGA.

Mattel’s beef in understandable.  Ever since Bratz came on the market in 2001, Barbie has been losing her place in little girl’s hearts around the world.  Meanwhile, the Bratz dolls were awarded the Toy Industry Association’s People’s Choice Toy of the Year Award, as well as the Family Fun’s Toy of the Year award.

Bratz may never give the mantle back to Barbie. The line of dolls and accessories have successful been spun into new music albums and a popular children’s show as well.

  1. P.S its not fair tht barbie sued the bratz becauz barbie has been up since like the beginning of time and the toy story 3 ppl were nice enough to let barbie be in their movie and not the bratz so barbie is just jealous and needs to accept the fact tht no one likes barbie any more plus bratz r WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY cooler.

  2. I HATE U BARBIE!!!!!!!! I MISS THE BRATZ AND BRAZT KIDZ AND BRAZT LIL ANGELS. BARBIE NEEDS TO LEAVE THE BRATZ ALONE AND I AGREE WITH JAMIE WEN HE/SHE SAID “NO LITTLE GIRL IS GONNA BUY A DOLL THAT SUED THEIR FAVORITE DOLL” I TOTALLY AGREE!!!!!!!!! I EFFIN HATE U BARBIE!!!!!GO ROT IN JAIL OR A HOLE OR SOMTHING CUZ NO ONE LIKES U!

  3. Okay first of all im sure barbie can legaly sue Bratz; and thats part of buisness; its all about money; and Barbie never was a good role model for girls; no little girl could relate to barbie; A tall skinny blonde chick who was much to supremem for eveyone else; Bratz are funky down to earth dolls that love fasion; theyre deffinatly not slutty; they just have there own style and i think teaching little girls creativity and indipanence is a good thing, Barbies old; new things come; just embrace it; i think Barbie should get over it; because no little girl is gonna wanna buy a doll that sued there favourtite Doll!!!

  4. I’m really annoyed at Barbie just because their Jealous because Bratz is selling way more stuff than Barbie, Barbie has had it’s day and it way past the time to move on!!!
    Bratz tells you to be yourself no matter what anyone says, Barbie would probably say if you have Blonde hair you can rule the entire world!

  5. I LOVE BRATZ! I HOPE BARBIE GETS SUED BACK! THERE SO WRONG FOR SUEING BRATZ HOPE U COME BACK BRATZ! (:

  6. I think Bratz are the best new barbies there are. By the way I have no disire to go out and dress like them. As a quote from someone I heard earlier its parents influence that make kids want to do stuff. So take that world. Bratz roll need to come back and Barbies go away there so out of date or at least come up with something new.

  7. I remember the old Barbie with the “girls can do anything!” attitude. Ever since Bratz came on the market Barbie has become as slutty as the Bratz dolls in an attempt to win back the market. Bratz are horrible role models for impressionable young girls! As a mom I don’t allow Bratz in my house! I don’t want to have an anorexic slutty daughter! Barbie, however, could surely do much better! What happened to President Barbie? Bratz made it all go down the toilet! Keep up the good fight Mattel! When Bratz goes down please make sure to make Barbie good again! There are too many children wrongly influenced by her new sexy image!

  8. P.S: Bratz don’t have big heads!!! They are absolutely gorgeous. With dramatic eyeshadow, stylin almond shape eyes and glossy, pouted lips…I think they are like fashion angels.

  9. I’m just so upset that Bratz are leaving!!! I never even had a Bratz doll yet and now Bratz is taken away???!!! UGH!

  10. Stupid Barbie! Why did you let this happen? But the question is, why does Mattel want to sue Bratz? But still, I think Barbie looks like sluts and Bratz are the ONLY gilrs with a passion 4 fashion. I just wish Bratz won the lawsuit against Barbie! Get your mind into action here! Now, who is Barbie? THAT’S RIGHT! BIG DOG POOP BARBIE!

  11. This is ridiculous!!! Barbie is just the dumbest thing to ever exist!!!! My little sister got bad influences from Barbie, now she almost dyed her hair!!!!!!! ( Blonde ) of course. I’m never buying that dumb doll for her again!!!! She should just stick to Bratz. At least Bratz shows to just be herself. But for Barbie, her motto would be: only blonde and blue eyed girls can rule the world!!!! That is so not true!!!!!!! Wake up people.

  12. i am so mad that bratz is going away just because of barbie know she is a fool to do this thats it will be war with me and barbie because i am takeing barbie down and i will sue barbie and if you want to help send a note to mga to tell they not to let barbie do this and if you are with my do it for bratz p.s. bratz rule barbie drools

    Well… I think that Bratz is a group of single highschool students proved as goddesses or maybe queens or archangels. Barbie, on the other hand, is a “sexy princess.” We hope so for the fight. Yes, both Bratz and Barbie won. hope these helps.

  14. People can relate to Bratz. Whether you’re a rocker, a fashion icon wannabe, a professional, a bratty kid there is always at least one Bratz that you can relate into. This makes them even more familarm thus closer to the hearts of their fans.

  15. I can’t beleive that the bratz dolls are being sued. my friends and i are so upset that we are throwing a bratz party at my house January,3.2009 and just because one of barbies ex-co worker stole their idea and used it for bratz find another idea in you brain that’s why we have one or go find one on google or where yall get yall clothes from which is e-bay

  16. im so upset that bratz (my friend will) be gone and soooo many girls are upset too i also told my dad “i wont buy barbie dolls if they take bratz away!” but know its too late….

    Sigh if your me you’ll feel my pain

  17. I am a 11 year old girl that just loves the Bratz dolls. I am really upset that Barbie is trying to sue Bratz over stupid things. I believe that the only reason why they are being suied is because Barbie is being out beaten by Bratz and they don’t like to be number one. A lot of girls are going to be really upset with this.
