Gah, each girl's "unique personality" my left toe. It's the same old "boy band formula" just with girls, and all emphasizing looks and shopping. This is the last thing I'd be proud of letting my child listen to, the idea that you have to fit into one neat little box of likes and dislikes.

I'm sure this will no be posted since it's not a positive response, but in case it gets through, if you read this sort of thing and get a sick little feeling in your stomach - or if you think I'm full of whiny badness - either way, I can't recommend the book "Packaging Girlhood: Rescuing Our Daughters from Marketers' Schemes" highly enough.

The girls in this group seem to have been reduced to one dementional, dressed up paper dolls. I'm sure they each have more to offer than what is being presented and it would do my daughter an injustice to model herself after girls who allow themselves to be marketed in such a limited manner.
