Fashion Model Ashley Graham….
Ashley Graham has her very own Barbie Doll. I love it, I love it, I love it. If any of you are familiar with her you know she’s a plus size gal (by US standards). She is a beautiful woman and I’m so glad that Barbie manufacturer “Matel” is paying homage to a large portion of American women who are size 14 and up!
Another beautiful thing about this is it may help young girls with their self image. Of course, I think good parenting is a must here, but when children see reflections of themselves (no matter the size, race, or age) It can only be a good thing in my opinion.
I’m sorry I can’t post a link to the story but if you search it in your favorite browser you can find the story.
It’s about time!
Mattel, the maker of Barbie, announced Thursday the iconic doll will now come in three new body types and a variety of skin tones and hairstyles. This is the first time the doll will be available in body types beyond its original stick-thin frame.
Mattel has been putting Barbie through a transformation for the past two years to bring the doll in line with realistic body standards and reflect the diversity of the kids playing with the dolls. Last year Mattel introduced 23 new dolls with different skin tones, hairstyles, outfits and flat feet, rather than the perpetually pointy ones meant to fit into sky-high heels.
