Barbie has been banned in Iran and dozens of toy shops selling the doll have been closed down.
FOX News Radio’s Emily Wither reports from Jerusalem:
(Music) It’s all part of a decades-long crackdown on Western culture in Iran. A local news agency reporting this time the target is America’s favorite busty-blonde doll, Barbie. Police confiscating the doll from toy shops in the capital, Tehran. A Barbie ban wearing swimsuits and mini-skirts in a country where young women are forced to cover up, was imposed in the mid-1990’s. Iran has its own dolls; twins Dara and Sara who promote traditional values, but they’ve not managed to steal Barbie’s crown, or her boyfriend Ken.
