Barbie Expands its Fashionista Line With the Release of Inclusive New Dolls
Barbie is more inclusive than ever!
Mattel is adding new Barbie dolls to its Fashionistas lineup in an effort to offer choices that are more reflective of the world that kids see around them today. The Barbie Fashionistas line already has a variety of body types, skin tones, and hairstyles, and the new dolls are designed to represent even greater diversity and inclusivity.
These new dolls include one with the condition vitiligo, which causes loss of pigmentation in the skin. For the first time ever, there’s also a Ken doll with long hair. Both of these new releases are now available for purchase.
Two more dolls, one without hair and another with a gold prosthetic limb, will be available for purchase in June. The 2020 collection will also feature some returning favorites, including a doll with a wheelchair, which has been very popular in the past.
Each Barbie Fashionistas doll has her own look and is styled with fashions inspired by the latest trends. With added diversity and more variety in styles, fashions, shoes, and accessories, Mattel hopes that children everywhere will have more ways to spark their imagination and interact with the world around them!
