Sure to cause a commotion wherever she goes, Barbie will be available soon in three new different body shapes: Petite, Tall and Curvy. According to an article on BarbieCollector, this line was designed to "be a more authentic reflection of the world girls live in today." Personally, I think more diversity is always better, even if it requires different sizes of clothing for different bodies. I do wish that the new dolls had a little more articulation, however.
The dolls are part of Mattel's play line Fashionista series, which is usually available at Toys R Us, Target and other stores. However, for this collection, they are exclusively available from Mattel. If you sign up for Ebates, you can even earn 2.5% cash back on your purchase.
