So I stumbled through the Barbie aisle at Walmart the other day…
…and y’all, I almost cried. Just look at these. LOOK AT THEM.
So many skin tones!
PLUS SIZED BODY TYPES!
NATURAL HAIR STYLES!!! MULTIPLE SHADES OF DARK SKIN!!!
A WOMAN AS A DOCTOR!!!!!
I’M NOT DONE, THERE IS A PHOTO LIMIT!
LOOK AT THIS PROFESSIONAL LADY!
SO MANY SKIN TONES AND BODY TYPES AND LOOK AT THAT MERMAN!!!
Y’all, I’m just…so so happy.
I’m 35 years old and I’ve never seen a Barbie that looked like me, and then there I am as a Barbie in a purple sweater with thick thighs and evenly proportioned boobs and pink hair and a cat.
I can only imagine how other girls must feel.
Nicely done, Mattel. Nicely done!
Mattel also just announced some new Barbie dolls who have wheelchairs or prosthetic limbs!!!
Like screw anything calling this “politically correct,” this is what the real world literally is. And the world’s population of children is just as diverse as its adults. Kids deserve to see themselves represented. As a disabled person myself, I can’t tell you how much this would have meant to me as a little girl.
BRO HAVE Y’ALL SEEN THE NEWLY RELEASED ONES
YES YES YES THIS IS PERFECT!!!
I only ever saw the one disabled Barbie but their is at least two! And look a ramp!
the OP was made a year ago so for fun I went to check what they’re new dolls were
Guys… Even being confident there would be even MORE added to the barbie range of dolls…. I was not prepared.
I am about to image spam you so forgive but there’s just SO MUCH
holy shit. I’m like… not even a doll person and so many of these I want!
There’s LITERALLY too many to add
(who is she?)
Plus sized Barbie with DIMPLES
They actually have a barbie with albinism and bothered to give her a proper face-sculpt!
This one looks like she could kill me instantly if she made direct eye-contact
This one’s smile is just KILLING me
Nubian girl because we’re not messing around
Also… this doll does not have any name on the product listing nor on the packaging so this might just be me but…. help me out here guys… is this.. ….is this a non-binary barbie? Am I presuming too much or is that what I’m looking at here??
Also final note. Just to REALLY drill this all home, Barbie has some photos of kids playing with the dolls and
Ironically, Barbie did not come to play around.
Also I’m obsessed with this Sally Ride doll
Barbie never played around, barbie played for keeps, why do you think she works so hard in so many fields?
My daughter is a hardcore tomboy who loves dragons, godzilla, robots and unicorns, and these are the only dolls she likes to play with. Gave her a blanket “pick whatever you want” and she picked this series of dolls.
Like, I had about 20 Barbies back… uhhh 30 years ago when they were all same-same, so just imagine how many spoilt, only-children with parents that can afford this kind of thing might have now. SO MANY TO COLLECT. ALL DIFFERENT.
