Corvallis, OR - Playing with Barbie could limit how girls view their career choices, according to an experiment conducted by an Oregon State University researcher.
The researcher said a small group of girl ages 4 to 7 participated and were asked to play with either a Barbie doll or a Mrs. Potato Head.
After a few minutes, the girls were then asked about possible careers.
The researcher reported girls who played with Barbie thought they could do fewer jobs than boys.
Those with Mrs. Potato Head thought they could do about the same, the researcher reported.
