EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Barbie is continuing their mission to better represent girls of all kinds by launching dolls with three new body types to their Fashionistas line.

Along with the brand's original body type that has received much criticism in the past, Mattel is launching tall, curvy, and petite body types to their Fashionistas collection.

These new body types join the line's seven different skin tones, 22 eye colors, 24 hair styles and innumerable chic outfits.

"These new dolls represent a line that is more reflective of the world girls see around them," said Evelyn Mazzocco, Senior Vice President and Global General Manager at Barbie. "The variety in body type, skin tones and style allows girls to find a doll that speaks to them."

"We believe we have a responsibility to girls and parents to reflect a broader view of beauty."
