New Barbie Dolls Are Inspiring Girls To Be the Best Versions of Themselves
Barbie has been making headlines recently with the ongoing creation of new dolls intended to show girls that they can be who they are and aspire to be anything.
Since studies continue to show the negative impact dolls and the "princess culture" have on our children, Barbie's initiatives, while much overdue, are great steps toward creating a brighter future for our youth.
Being a veterinarian or a doctor is no longer something girls dream about without seeing. Looking like the original skinny, blonde Barbie is no longer the only option.
Girls can now picture themselves as Presidents and CEOs, and accept their hair, skin, and size, while boys who see or play with those same dolls see girls in a different way.
Click through the gallery above to see some of the new Barbie dolls on the market that encourage everyone to be the best version of themselves and watch the heartwarming video clip below:
