PSA for all of our DIVA’s and Dolls!
Barbie has finally evolved, and she is beginning to look a lot like the rest of us. Weather your shape is slim-thick, curvy, petite, or tall Mattel has a barbie that you can finally relate with! It took the company 57 years to realize that the standard image of beauty does not reflect majority of the women in this world. Most of us do not have perfect B/C breasts, tooth pick legs, blonde hair, and blue eyes. America is a “melting pot” and we should pride ourselves on diversity, so it is about time our little girls get to play with representations that truly reflect them.
The new barbies come in different colors, shapes, and sizes including tall, petite, curvy dolls that range from fair skin to dark skin! Mattel said this on their website:
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
This is just the beginning. From offering products that feature more empowering and imaginative roles to partnering with best in class role models, we believe in girls and their limitless potential. #YouCanBeAnything
This change should boost self esteem for all little girls around the world and take their imagination to the next level! Girls are finally getting to see themselves within these dolls and starting to realize that beautiful comes in all different color shapes and sizes. Young girls will begin to love themselves just as much as they love their barbies.
