You heard me, Barbie has a new body and she is not ashamed to show it off! We had to wait 57 years for it to happen, but late is better than never! The Barbie-obsessed little girl inside me is screaming of joy!!
Introducing… “Curvy Barbie”!
Time magazine has released a great in-depth article about the entire history and new launch of this collection.
The new Barbie isn’t only curvier, she is more diverse overall: she is darker, edgier, has curly hair, and ultimately more accessible. I mean, this hasn’t solved world peace, but it’s a start.
As I was curating these Barbie images, right away, I was assigning them to girls I knew. I would like to take you on a journey of my thought process… so here goes!

Having grown up a HUGE Barbie fan, I just love how they’re diversifying Barbie. I’m a brunette and although I loved my Barbies, I was always disappointed that they were all blonde. I was excited when they started making brunette Barbies, then barbies of colour. Now, this is the cherry on top–Barbies with different shapes and sizes. 🙂
Totally agree! Although I’m blonde… But you get my drift!
