If you were a Barbie fan like we were as a kid, you’d know that Barbie’s lovely, long legs always came with permanently pointed toes, ready for a new pair of stilettos at a moment’s notice. Well, Barbie manufacturer, Mattel, has decided to add a bit more realism to these stylish dolls and released a new collection of Barbies with adjustable ankles in the Fashionista line. This is finally allowing your favorite toy to finally wear flats!
If that doesn’t sound like more versatility, don’t fear, because these new dolls are more diverse than ever. Coming with eight new skin tones, 14 facial sculpts, 18 eye colours, 22 hairstyles, and 23 hair colours! Finally, young girls who had trouble identifying with their Barbies’ looks can find some comfort in the new Fashionista line.
Let’s hope Mattel keeps up with their innovative trends, and maybe we’ll start having toys with even more diversity!
