New Barbie for a New Era:

A few weeks ago we released our Ken Doll, and it looks like there’s Barbie’s
following our tracks.

American toy maker, Mattel, just launched a new line of Barbie’s. After receiving a bit of flack, Barbie has released new dolls that are now offered in three different body shapes with various features to make Barbie much more diverse and relatable than she has been in the past. Even though there is some speculation that Ken will be next for a makeover, you’ll have to wait and see what we have in store…

“We are excited to literally be changing the face of the brand – these new dolls represent a line that is more reflective of the world girls see around them – the variety in body type, skin tones and style allows girls to find a doll that speaks to them," said Evelyn Mazzocco,
Mattel senior vice president.

Zinc couldn’t be happier for the young kids of the world to now have a realistic role model, as we believe that design changes lives.
