Barbie announced a couple of days ago that they will be releasing more diverse dolls to their fashionistas line (I'm pretty sure that's what it's called) and I am so excited!
|Petite, Tall, Curvy, and Original Barbie dolls|
Okay, so let me start by saying, Barbie never really made me feel self-conscious or wish I was thinner- honestly, even though I liked Barbies, I wasn't like, obsessed with them or anything. But body image is something that is a big issue right now- and I am so glad that Barbie is spreading its diversity a little bit more.
Now, on to pros and cons...
- Not all clothes will fit on every Barbie.
- At the moment, not all skin colors/hair colors come in all of the body types.
- It gives girls more dolls to play with that actually look like their friends, family as well as their selves.
- It's a cheaper and prettier option to a bit more average-size doll. Because there is Lammily, but honestly- she's expensive, kind of clunky, and generally just not as much fun.
I can think of more, but that would take all day, so...
Talk to you later loves!! xx
