My sister and I loved our Barbie dolls growing up. I loved those dolls but even at a young age I was keenly aware that I looked nothing like my favorite dolls. Tall, thin, and blonde was never going to be an accurate representation of me.
Today, Barbie made a big change. Three new body types were announced; petite, curvy, and tall. The new body types will also be available in seven different skin tones, 22 eye colors, and 24 hair styles.
Girls all over the world will soon be able to play with dolls that look a bit more like they do.
