Barbies that look like ME!

I wrote earlier this week briefly on the new black Barbies and the backlash that has taken place in response to the hair types and bling-bling (truly larger-than-life gold jewelry in this case) the Barbies were wearing.

Well, check out this post on “Dear Mattel, this is how you make Barbie more diverse”. I was floored. Just floored. One of these Barbies looks just like my little sister. I never thought I’d live to see the day when Barbies actually reflected what my family looks like (check out the one above)!

Along with the above pictured doll with the curly afro, there is a doll with dreadlocks, a doll with long curly locks and more!
