Barbie is back and better than ever with three new body shapes — tall, petite and curvy. I immediately emailed my parents after I heard about the new doll announcement and may or may not have placed an order (or three) of the new dolls. This news is especially exciting for those of us who have been severely underrepresented in mainstream merchandise. I could never find black Barbies growing up. I think there was one black barbie made when I was a kid. My mom bought me two of them and used to paint all my other dolls so they would look like me (shoutout to Theodra for being the best).
I introduce to you Barbie Fashionsita:
Doll 25 Blue Brocade – Petite
This doll is my actual twin, from the hair, to the body type, to the skin color and even down to the cute little dress, which I hope they make in human size because I would actually wear this everywhere.
I am PUMPED about these dolls being released and can’t wait to see how they perform with others. Other standout performances include:
Barbie Fashionistas Doll 33 Fab Fringe – Tall.
Barbie Fashionistas Doll 27 Sweetheart Stripes – Curvy
A full list of dolls can be found on the Barbie website and they can all be pre-ordered now!
