Vintage Barbie Doll Set Shockingly Encouraged ‘Starvation Dieting’

Would you buy these barbie doll sets, produced by Mattel 50 years ago, which encouraged starvation dieting?

This series of Barbie doll toys include a miniature book titled How to Lose Weight, with the simple advice that says “Don’t Eat!”, and a bathroom scale permanently set at an unrealistic weight.

The ‘Slumber Party Barbie’ are now rare collectibles and can be purchased for US$125.
