As of Sunday January 28, Matel announced their new collection of Barbie Dolls. They would no longer neglect to add more realistic dolls. The new Barbie Dolls are going to possess different body sizes (tall, petite, and curvy), skin tones, and hair styles. This is a big change for Matel. They also stated they would not include overweight dolls because they believe that obesity is not something to be promoted. As the spokeswoman, Michelle Chidoni, says “it is a better reflection of what girls see in the world around them”. The dolls are expected to to start online sales this Thursday and will hit stores March 1. Check out some of the new Barbies below.
