The goal of Mattel's "Dolls of the World" Barbie collection might be to boost intercultural understanding -- but it seems the brand has tried the tolerance of specific communities it seeks to represent.

The latest batch of dolls in the collection -- shown in the slideshow below -- was introduced last summer. Each one comes with a passport and a pet -- Holland Barbie has a bunny and India Barbie, a monkey. The accessories assigned to Mexico Barbie, however, have been the focus of considerable skepticism from commentators.

Bloggers including Laura Martinez have protested the inclusion of a passport at all, suggesting that making special reference to the doll's documentation is offensive.

On Cafemom's The Stir, blogger Adriana Velez called the entire set a "missed opportunity" to teach about real cultural diversity.

Complaining that the Mexican doll's costume was not only old-fashioned, but also inaccurate, she suggested alternative accessories like "a white blouse with colorful embroidery and a woven shawl."

"[A]ll girls deserve dolls that enlighten them, not that talk down to them with this half-assed ethnic tourism," she wrote, adding that a hairless dog -- or even a Mexican bass guitar -- would have been a more appropriate prop than a Chihuahua.

Mommy Maestra blogger Monica Olivera was similarly unimpressed by Mexico Barbie's canine pet, but apart from that, she wrote on NBC Latino, she doesn't find the doll objectionable.
