I admit as a grown-up I have had an issue with Barbie. When I was growing up I loved Barbie, she was the standard of beauty and I can remember being sad because I knew that I would never ever look like her. I was not tall, blue eyed or blond. Of course as an adult my standard of beauty has changed. Now the most beautiful woman I know is my Mom.

When I had my girls I did my best to keep Barbie dolls away from them. I never wanted them to feel that in order to be beautiful you had to look like Barbie. And now all these years later it seems that Barbie is finally understanding the diversity of our world and this spring are releasing a campaign called #TheDollEvolves and new set of dolls.

There is a "curvy" doll, a "tall" doll, a "petite" doll and an original doll. The idea is that girls will be able to find a doll that looks like them or the people around them. The Barbie company states..

"This is just the beginning. From offering products that feature more empowering and imaginative roles to partnering with best in class role models, we believe in girls and their limitless potential. #YouCanBeAnything"

We think this is a step in the right direction!
