That slim waist, larger upper body and thin legs with high heels got that girl in trouble!
The highly criticized Barbie doll figure has been changed up to be more politically correct.
The teeny tiny waist waist has been switched out for three other body styles – tall, curvy and petite.
Not only that- they’ll come in a variety of skin tones and hair styles.
About the changes, the company had this to say, “By introducing more variety into the line, Barbie® is offering girls choices that are more reflective of the world they see today.”
Now why should we care about this? It’s something to think about.
We grew up with blonde hair, blue-eyed Barbie. What do you think the next generation will be like?
Is this just a ploy by a company wanting to ramp up sales or do you think it’s more than that?
Is Generation Y to credit for this significant change in such a childhood staple?
