For 57 years, Barbie has been an outlet for girls to express their dreams. Now, girls can continue to do so with dolls that actually look like them. Mattel will be introducing three new Barbie body types: tall, curvy and petite. They are also going to have customizable skin colors and hair types. The Shorthorn talked to students about why this change is a win for girls everywhere.
