Yesterday, everyone’s favorite girl in pink made a big body conscious announcement… (Hint: it’s Barbie, and yes I know you have already heard a ton about this in the past 48 hours!)
Barbie announced a monumental decision to release new dolls that symbolize the “every girl!”
On a first look, I am a little concerned that these “fashionistas” are lacking in their style choices. It’s still clear that the “original” Barbie got the best outfits, but I do think it is definitely a step in the right direction. Now, I just really want to see them coming up with a website where you can make a Barbie doll to look like you.
In a statement from Mattel, “Girls everywhere now have infinitely more ways to play out their stories and spark their imaginations through Barbie. Along with more overall diversity, we proudly add three new body types to our line. Here’s a look at why we did this, and the team that made it possible. #TheDollEvolves”
I am more proud than ever to declare myself a Barbie Girl!
