Happy Thursday! We’re one day closer to Friday! And that’s not the only good news.

Remember when we were little girls and played with our Barbies that looked like this:

And then as we got older we started to think, “Hmm… maybe should look like that. After all, there’s not really a doll out there that looks like me.

At least, that’s what I thought. Don’t get me wrong; I think Barbie is a great toy and I absolutely LOVED dressing mine up and acting out plays with them. I also really like that Barbie has had 130 different careers, showing girls that anything is possible! However, I do think there’s room for improvement. And that’s why I was so excited when I read an article from The Telegraph!

“Mattel has revealed, as a new range includes three optional body shapes – petite, tall and curvy – as well as seven different skin tones and 24 hair styles.”

Mattel has decided to add new dolls to their Barbie line! There will be three new body shapes as well as new skin tones and hairstyles! How exciting is that?! Now little girls everywhere can find a Barbie that looks like them! I truly think this was an awesome move for Mattel.
