St. Louis (KSDK) -- Would you let your child play with a tattoo-covered Barbie doll?
Some moms I spoke with found the Barbie to be a little too influential for young children and others thought she'd be a great conversation starter.
The Tokidoki Barbie came out just weeks ago. Tokidoki is a Japanese-inspired clothing brand that Mattel teamed up with to create the doll. It features tattoos on her back, arm, and chest. She also has pink hair and is wearing a pink mini skirt.
Kids at this play date loved the doll and couldn't help but play with her. A lot of moms are asking if it's appropriate for their children, but Mattel says Tokidiki Barbie is designed for the adult collector.
We asked moms at the play date if they think their kids would influenced by the doll.
Suzanne Tucker said, "I have no problem with tattoos, so I think it's a good conversation to have with your kids. But do I want my 11 year old to want a tattoo straight up her neck? No."
Ali Field said, "I don't think my 5 year old or 6 year old is going to want to go out and get a real tattoo. Maybe a fake tattoo. No, i don't think it endorses tattoos. It's a toy, you play with it."
KSDK bought the doll for $50 on the Barbie collector website. However, she is now sold out and is selling for around $400 on eBay.
