For 58 years now, Barbie dolls have been introducing young girls to the world of beauty and fashion trends. We couldn’t be happier that the company decided to switch thighs up and create this line of 17 new dolls, all based on real and inspired women.
Before making this bold move the company did a survey on 8000 mothers and 86% of them were worried about the role models their daughters are exposed to.
“Girls have always been able to play out different roles and careers with Barbie and we are thrilled to shine a light on real-life role models to remind them that they can be anything,” said Lisa McKnight, the senior vice president and general manager of Barbie.
