Barbie has got a new body, yall!

I’d like to call it the Ava DuVernay effect. After all, the limited edition dolls made out of the image of the award-winning director (“Selma“) sold out in minutes of it becoming available on the Barbie and Amazon site. Then, within days, the $65 collector’s doll was being auctioned off at $300 a pop.  So no doubt. Mattel got the message last December that diversity sells.

So in keeping with its new direction, the toy company released today a new crop of dolls that come in all heights, shapes, sizes, skin tones and hair colors and texture.

Mattel is keeping the original Barbie dolls but will start to roll these new ones out beginning in March. You can pre-order now at the Barbie website!
