It looks like Barbie finally got the message that girls come in multiple colors, shapes, and sizes! The company will be releasing dolls with three new body types to their line.
After years of struggling to find dolls that represent them, girls will now have several different Barbies to choose from. The company posted a picture on their Instagram account featuring dolls from the new line. They captioned the picture, “With 4 body types, 7 skin tones, 22 eye colors, and 24 hairstyles, we proudly offer girls more choices than ever. Learn more at Barbie. com and share your favorite dolls. #TheDollEvolves #Barbie.”
The dolls now come in petite, curvy, and tall. In a video on the Barbie website, Director of Consumer Insights Tania Missad said, “We have to let girls know it doesn’t matter what shape you come in, that anything is possible.”
The dolls don’t come out until the spring, but they can be pre-ordered on Barbie’s website.
What do you think of the new dolls?
