what a doll

Remember when Francie and Christie were Barbie’s only Black friends? That was then, this is now…Mattel’s new Barbie dolls are addressing not only the diversity in skin tones but also different body types. The toy maker added three new body types to the famous doll line (curvy, tall and petite) along with seven different skin tones and 22 eye colors. Barbie is also flaunting 24 various haircolors and styles (we’re cheering ‘cause we love this kind of “hair news!”). Where can you score the new Barbie line? Check them out online now or see them in the stores beginning March 1.
