Mattel Unveils Frida Kahlo Barbie Doll

Barbie dolls have long inspired young girls with their beauty and fashion sense. Now a new line of Barbie dolls based on real-life figures will be introduced ahead of International Women’s Day.

After conducting a survey of 8,000 mothers around the world Mattel found that 86% are worried about the kind of role models their daughters are exposed to.

There will be two separate series of Barbies: “Inspiring Women,” based on historical figures, and a new addition to its “Sphere line of dolls named for inspirational contemporary women.

The “Inspiring Women” dolls come with educational information about the contributions each woman made to society. One of the three dolls will portray the renowned Mexican artist and activist Frida Kahlo. Barbie will also honor Amelia Earhart, Katherine Johnson, a pioneer in mathematics who broke barriers of race and gender.

This is a great idea from Mattel, not only are you paying tribute to incredible women of their time who took risks, changed rules and paved the way for generations of girls but the fact that they selected Frida Kahlo is amazing.
