". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Please tell me you're not getting this . . .

. . . for the little girl on your Christmas list:

Barbie in a burqa (burkha?)

Call me old-fashioned, but what ever happened to easy bake ovens and dolls that pee?

I think it's more of an artpiece-type thing, made by a designer, so it looks like it's not meant for children.

Burqas aren't really frequently worn in the Muslim world anyway. They were really more instituted by the Taliban only since the past 20 years or so. The more moderate hijab headcoverings are used by more Muslim women. Even at the community college where I work, there will be some Muslim women here who wear the hijab.
