Guys I have to be honest i love the fact that when i have some cute girls running around my house they will be playing with a doll that doesn’t tell them how they have to be tall, skinny or blonde, which if they look like their mom or aunts, obviously won’t be. We have to stop letting the fashion or toy industry, in this case, telling us what is right or what is wrong. it doesn’t matter if you’re short, tall, blonde, redhead or brunette the important thing is that you are smart, kind and generous in life.
MATTEL RELEASES THREE NEW BODY SHAPES FOR THE WORLD’S BEST-SELLING DOLL. INSIDE THE BIGGEST CHANGE IN BARBIE’S 57-YEAR HISTORY–AND WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT AMERICAN BEAUTY IDEALS
The best-selling doll ever now has three new bodies: tall, petite and curvy versions will now be sold alongside the original model. Faced with changes in beauty ideals, shifting demographics and ongoing criticism of Barbie’s impossible proportions, Mattel decided to remake the iconic blonde. The new body shapes follow the addition of new skin tones and hair textures.
The changes give Barbie a range of diverse looks that better reflect 21st century America. The endeavor was so secret, the company’s executives codenamed it “Project Dawn” (as in dawn of a new day), so that even their families wouldn’t know that Barbie was getting the most dramatic body transformation in her 57-year history.
