Barbie Introduces New Dolls With Prosthetic Limbs


Barbie is helping to fight the stigma around physical disabilities!

The toy line has announced a few news dolls that are in wheelchairs and have prosthetic limbs. They will debut the new dolls in June. The new dolls are part of Mattel's 2019 Barbie Fashionistas line, which aims to offer kids more diverse representations of beauty.

Mattel collaborated with Jordan Reeves, a 13-year-old disability activist who was born without a left forearm, to create the doll with the prosthetic limb, which can be removed for a "more realistic" play experience.
