The dolls have been in the works for the last 2 yrs according to Mattel Inc spokeswoman Michelle Chidoni.

Mattel Inc are hoping that the new dolls will be more relatable to kids after a 4% drop in their last quarter sales.

The new dolls will be available in US stores in March and will roll out globally after that.

There have been some members of the public that are not happy with the names of the dolls, in particular curvy doll. I agree to a point, I don’t know why  they don’t give the dolls names like Janice or Cheryl or any other name for that matter, after all they don’t call barbie big boobs do they?

What do you think of the changes? how do you think kids will react to the new dolls?
