You’ve come a long way Barbie

The 2020 Barbie range steps-out with inclusiveness.

Loving the way the Barbie brand has kept pace with society and arguably takes a leadership role in diversity and inclusiveness. The range of Barbie dolls includes35 skin tones, 9 body types, a Barbie in a wheel chair, one with a prosthesis, a barbie with the skin condition; vitiligo and a Barbie with no hair.

The brand has come a long way since it’s launch 60 years ago, but we’re wondering if we’ll ever see a Barbie that genuinely represents a more realistic body shape.
