Barbie Like We've Never Seen Her
If you are like most women and young girls who have owned or own a Barbie or two (and a Ken), then Barbie's "new body" is interesting news. Just for the record, we loved our Barbie just the way she was, but that was a long time ago! And to be honest most of us in The Conversation Circle, who owned Barbies, weren't so discerning about her body, (just getting a Barbie was a big deal) and the message it was sending. So it's good news that Mattel has issued three new Barbie body types, (reports are the changes were made to halt the brand's declining sales and criticism from parents) curvy, tall and petite. Hats off to this new generation of parents and girls who are affecting change. Looks like Barbie's "back in touch".
