Barbie Updates "Fashionistas" Doll Collection For Its Most Diverse Line Yet

Including dolls with vitiligo and prosthetic limbs.

Barbie has expanded its “Fashionistas” doll line, originally introduced in 2016 to include plus-size, tall and petite body types, with four new diverse models. The additions bring greater representation to those with vitiligo, hair-loss and prosthetic limbs.

Mattel worked with a dermatologist to ensure its Barbie with vitiligo accurately represents the skin condition. The company also collaborated with 13-year-old activist Jordan Reeves, who was born without a left arm, on a doll using a gold prosthetic leg. Ken is also included in Barbie’s new additions — he now sports long hair instead of a traditional short style.

Barbie’s “Fashionistas” dolls range from $10 to $20 USD and can be purchased on the Mattel website.
