Frida Kahlo Barbie Probably Won’t Happen

For those looking forward to buying a Frida Kahlo Barbie doll, it does not look like it will happen.
Ever since the doll was announced critics complained that the doll doesn’t correctly reflect Frida Khalo specifically her famous nearly conjoined eyebrows and the dress the doll wears doesn’t accurately portray the elaborated Tehuana-style dresses the artist wore.

To make things worse the family and Frida Kahlo Corporation have been in a dispute with toy-maker Mattel over the rights to the Frida Barbie doll.

Kahlo’s great-niece Mara de And a Romeo said Mattel doesn’t have the rights to use Kahlo’s image. And now the family of the late Frida Kahlo has won a temporary injunction that stops sales of the Frida barbie doll.

Mattel has said it worked with the Panama-based Frida Kahlo Corp. which it claims has the rights to the artist’s image.

Sounds like this is a battle Mattel is not going to win.
