Mattel Inc created a new line of barbies that come with a wheelchair or prosthetic limb in order to connect with children who are going through or were born with similar circumstances.
Barbie has come a long way since the traditional doll came out. The creators at Mattel Inc, have created new dolls that are very different from the blonde hair, blue eye, perfect body Barbie. They recently came out with more dolls that were male, different skin tones, different hair textures, and different body sizes. The latest idea is Barbies that are in a wheelchair or have a prosthetic limb. The Barbie industry has received a lot of backlash over the years because of their lack of inclusivity. The prosthetic limb and wheelchair Barbie is a step in the right direction for the brand to be known as friendly for all types of kids. These Barbies can be found starting in the fall of 2019.
