This Wednesday, US toy-maker Mattel revealed another line of Barbie dolls in view of accomplished ladies that incorporate US snowboarder Chloe Kim, Australian conservationist Bindi Irwin and Mexican craftsman Frida Kahlo.
The toy-maker reported the new dolls ahead of International Woman’s Day on Thursday. Majority of the new dolls are based on living ladies, for example, Chinese volleyball champion Hui Ruoqi, French chef specialist Helene Darroze and British boxing champion Nicola Adams.
A different line named “Inspiring Women” based on historic famous celebrities , for example, pioneer aviatrix Amelia Earhart and African-American mathematician Katherine Johnson, made well known by the 2016 Hollywood movie “Hidden Figures.”
The new dolls, in any case, keep the unrealistically thin and lean extents of an classic Barbie doll.
Mattel’s, for decades a blonde white doll, began in recent years to diversify its line in order to boost sales.
In mid 2016, the California-based organization revealed Barbie versions in three distinctive body shapes – tall, petite and thrilling – and in seven diverse skin tones.
In December 2017, Mattel launched a Barbie doll in light of US Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, an American of Muslim confidence who contends with a hijab head cover.
This broadening has enabled Barbie to be one of Mattel’s few successful toy lines, demonstrating a nine percent growth in the final quarter of 2017 of every a year that the organization’s worldwide sales dropped by 10.5 percent.
