Iran Places Ban On Barbie Dolls

If you plan on making a fun filled family vacation to Iran any time soon, you better leave your Simpsons toys and Barbie dolls behind.

The country’s Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults has banned Simpson toys and Barbies. They didn’t give a specific reason for the decision, but the organization’s secretary of policymaking did point out that any doll that has distinguishable adult parts, or any dolls of adults at all, are banned “because these dolls are promoters of Western culture.”

Spider-Man and Superman, however, are okay with Iran, because “they help oppressed people and they have a positive stance.”
