Mattel's Finally Coming Out With A Bald Barbie Doll!

Filed under: InspirationHairstylesBarbie

This is amazing!

Mattel announced last week they will be coming out with a special bald Friend of Barbie next year!

To ensure a traditional fashion play experience, the doll will come with various wigs, hats, scarves and other fashion accessories.

Cute!

In a surprising move, Mattel has decided NOT to sell Barbie's friend in retail stores. They explained on their Facebook page:

"Through a thoughtful approach, we made the decision not to sell these dolls at retail stores, but rather get the dolls directly into the hands of children who can most benefit from the unique play experience, demonstrating Mattel’s ongoing commitment to encourage play as a respite for children in the hospital and to bring joy to children who need it most."

We think that's the right thing to do, at least for now.

What do U think about Mattel's decision???

Katniss Everdeen's Getting The Barbie Treatment

Mattel wants a piece of that multi-million dollar Hunger Games pie!

The Barbie maker announced last week they will be releasing a new collector's doll based on Jennifer Lawrence's character Katniss Everdeen.

Mattel hasn't revealed when the doll will be released, but if they're wanting to ca$$$h in on the box office smash we're guessing sooner rather than later.

If they're going to come out with a Katniss doll they gotta make an Effie Trinket!

That would be #totesamaze.

Guess The Kardashian Barbie Is No More!

Not a good couple of weeks for the Kardashian brand!!

First, Khloe had to deal with those icky rumors spread by her father's ex-wives, claiming she wasn't a biological Kardashian.

THEN, the Kardashian magazine idea was smacked down when Kris Jenner demanded full editorial control — ha, like that was ever gonna happen!

And now Mattel has apparently changed their minds on turning the K-Dash dolls into real dolls..

A rep for the company states:

So why isn't Mattel budging when it comes to making a bald Barbie?? ESPECIALLY when it's in the spirit of helping KIDS WITH CANCER!!

There's a campaign asking Mattel to make a bald Barbie so younger generations of cancer patients will feel less self-conscious without their locks.

Not only that but
