The once unattainable barbie body figure is now attainable. For the first time in 57 years Barbie’s body type is changing.

Its Barbie Website stated that “girls everywhere now have infinitely more ways to play out their stories and spark their imaginations through barbie.” Following up the statement with a new hashtag #TheDollEvolves that can be seen throughout social media.

The new body type Barbie dolls come in four body types, seven different skin tones, 22 eye colors and 24 hair styles.

Pictured below is a preview of the curvy, tall & petite barbie dolls!


Now we can really start singing along to “I’m a barbie girl, in a barbie world.”

The change may be a little late, but better late than never. Good job Mattel!
