The new black Barbie
Black Barbie - great for any race!
I’d like to say congrats to Mattell designer Stacey McBride-Irby, who designed three beautiful black barbies, Grace, Kara & Trichelle.
While Mattell may have waited abit too long in my opinion, it’s better late than never. Many people have criticized the dolls for either having hair that’s too long or too straight, but I have long straight hair that I straightened, but it’s my hair and a part of me.
Black women come in all shades, shapes and varieties that there is just no way to capture everyone with 3 dolls. The dolls are beautiful and I’m sure young girls of any race will enjoy playing them.
