Barbie introduces dolls with disabilities

The Barbie doll range will include dolls with disabilities. For the brand’s 60th birthday the range will include dolls of all body types, ethnicities and disabilities.

A Barbie in a wheelchair and another with a prosthetic leg will be introduced, Toymaker Mattel said in a statement.

“For 60 years, Barbie has been a reflection of culture and fashion and that is key to the brand’s continued relevance,” Mattel’s global head of design for Barbie Kim Culmone said. “This year our Barbie line will include dolls with physical disabilities to better represent the people and the world." The dolls with disabilities will be available in latter in 2019.
