Earlier this week, the iconic Barbie brand announced that they would be releasing a new line of more inclusive dolls to better reflect diversity in American.

Barbie dolls will now come in tall, petite, and curvy sizes in addition to the normal barbie type. The doll will also have a myriad of hair types, skin tones, and eye color. Another cool addition is that this new barbie will have joints at the ankle which will allow Barbie to kick off her high heels and don a pair of flats or sneakers.

It is an important step for the iconic doll company. No doubt, the corporation is hoping that this re-invigoration will successfully compete with other popular dolls in the market and bring back the era of Barbie.

This new Barbie ad shows little girls of all shapes and sizes finding the doll that looks just like them.
