Mattel Win - Little Girls Lose

A judge today ordered that MGA stop making their popular line of Bratz dolls and after Christmas they are to remove all current products in stores at their expense.

This is in response to a lawsuit filed by Mattel that has been ongoing since the launch of the Bratz dolls alleging it seems that the creator of the dolls had previously worked for Mattel and the concept of the Bratz doll was initially designed when he was an employee with Mattel.

Personally I think it's a sad state of affairs, my youngest Caity loves these dolls and had asked for one for Christmas. She prefers them over her Barbie collection, and plays with them over Barbies in her doll house. Big corporation wins and little girls lose I guess.

It'll be interesting to see if Mattel reinvent the concept under their own brand.

What do you think?
