Barbie to release three new body types

Well… it looks like 57-years after Barbie first gave girls an unrealistic representation of body-types, Mattel has decided to release three new body types.

TIME has a released a lengthy article about the three new versions (dubbed curvy, petite and tall) of the doll that will eventually join the original in the Barbie line.

Don’t worry folks, I’m sure that these new body types will also come with a new line of accessories. Maybe a new hat.

What do you think?  Too little, too late for Mattel or are they actually doing good?
