A handful of kid friendly plastic surgery apps have popped up in app stores, with some still available to download even though Google and Apple already removed many.

The 'Plastic Surgery For Barbie' app is a game in which players perform plastic surgery on an initially overweight character, and mold her into a different woman. This app, which was listed as suitable for children age nine and over, was removed by the Apple App Store.

Mattel released a statement, saying that the app had nothing to do with its line of Barbie products.

Other versions of the game are 'Plastic Surgery for Barbara' and 'Girl Makeover.'

Would you let your kids download this app?
