Barbie Announces 3 New Body Types for Dolls: Tall, Petite, & Curvy

Nearly sixty years after debuting, Barbie dolls are now being introduced with new body types including tall, petite, and curvy.

“Yes, some people will say we are late to the game,” Evelyn Mazzocco, head of the brand, told Time. “But changes at a huge corporation take time.”

“Our brand represents female empowerment,” Richard Dickson, COO added. “It’s about choices. Barbie had careers at a time when women were restricted to being just housewives. Ironically, our critics are the very people who should embrace us.”

Watch a video that Barbie just released detailing how kids feel about the new body types…

    gross!!!! when i think of barbie i want high glamour and over the top beauty. why would anyone want to play with a barbie thats in her late 20′s with some extra back fat???? dolls are supposed to inspire fantasy not mirror real life. if you want real, go play with your chubby friend sally down the street. are they gonna swap out the “barbie dream house” for a “barbie 2 bedroom 1 bath”?? are they gonna swap out barbies pink corvette with a mid size sedan???? when with this shit enddddd

    except the curvy that these people talk about is more like round

  • Jenny from the flop

    the ironic thing is that no kid care shit about barbies, its the grown ups who are obsessing over barbies these days. only reason theyre changing them is to please the adults. seriously, they’re more immature then their kids
