Ron Mattocks, author the blog Clark Kent's Lunchbox wrote a post about Mattel Toys and the newest doll in the American Girl Doll Series. Her name is Gwen and she's a homeless child. I thought this was a joke at first, only to discover that they were quite serious when they produced this doll. To make it even worse, the back story for this doll is her father is a deadbeat dad and left the family and now they are homeless.
Read his blog post with the letter he wrote to the CEO of Mattel Toys, Robert Eckert. It's interesting reading.
