Barbie In A New Era
#TheDollEvolves is the latest trending hashtag Mattel released this past January of 2016. In the newest set of dolls there are over seven different skin tones, twenty-four different hairstyles, and multiple body shapes allowing girls to find a doll that speaks to their character and personal diversity.
Not only did Barbie change her image, but new ad campaigns have been released in the more recent months with a clear message to young girls that they can be anything. Images include careers such as an astronaut, firefighter, a pilot, and even a mermaid.
