My twitter has been going crazy today with the announcement of new body types for Barbie!





What do you all think about this? Do you even care? Or do you think it's a positive change? biggrin.gif


http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/20...nd-skin-colours This article was an interesting read about this, and summarised really how I felt towards this, I'm really pleased as Barbies obviously sell so much, and it's great to see them embrace diversity more so than before, and start to tackle the unrealistic aspects of the dolls smile.gif

This is a great change! A lady from Vogue came into Uni today and actually touched briefly on this after talking about plus-sized models and I was so pleased to hear about it. Diversity being encouraged is fantastic. This gives a great message to all her young fans that these dolls that they idolise come in different shapes and colours, and that the Barbie we all know needn't be the only image to be looked up to. Woo *.*

This is great, just thinking of all the young kids that will grow up being more accepting of themselves because of it, more representation of different body types is something that's very much needed across all areas of society, i think i've even seen something about a range of dolls (im not sure on the company etc) where they actually have disabilities or visible medical conditions so that again is an huge step in the right direction happy.gif
