People have been saying it for years. Barbie’s one-size-fits-all body type needs to go.
…And now it has!
After three consecutive years of plummeting marketings, the big change couldn’t have come at a better period for Mattel.
Mattel unveiled three new body forms for the iconic doll, but they didn’t stop there.
They also debuted seven skin tones, 22 eye colorings, 24 haircuts and a bombardment of new accessories.
And we have to say … we’re loving her new diverse lookings. Like, WOW!
