As the annual Toy Fair approaches, so do the announcements from the makes of awesome products like the folks at Mattel who continually offer us worlds or wonder with their Barbie line (like the “Star Wars” and “David Bowie” ones from last year). Check out this latest bit of news.
The Press Release:
Yesterday, the ultimate girls empowerment brand – Barbie – announcd its 2020 Fashionistas line. Over the past five years, the line has evolved to be more reflective of the world girls see around them by introducing more than 170+ new looks. For 2020, Barbie is continuing the journey to represent global diversity and inclusivity in the fashion doll aisle by showcasing a multi-dimensional view of beauty and fashion by adding: a doll with skin condition vitiligo, a doll with no hair, a doll with a darker skin tone that uses a gold prosthetic limb, Ken with long rooted hair (all for the first-time).
