Barbie will no longer just be one skin tone, hair color, and shape. With the 2016 Barbie Fashionistas Dolls, they will be introducing dolls of four body types, seven skin tones, 22 eye colors, and 24 hairstyles. The fashion is also gorgeous, as always.
Unfortunately, the new Barbie dolls are causing controversy as some people think these dolls are unnecessary, that little girls shouldn’t treat Barbie as a role model and don’t need to see a doll that looks exactly like them. While these dolls may not be “necessary”, we feel it’s a lovely gesture and it also happens to mimic the American Girl doll philosophy. At an American Girl store, you can choose a doll that resembles
your skin tone, eye color, and hair color. Now, Barbie is bringing the likability of the American Girl down to an affordable level making dolls that look like you
that everyone can afford. With the American Girl doll costing $95, it makes things a lot easier on parents to spend only $10 for a Barbie Fashionista doll.
