Mattel is Launching a Line of “Gender Inclusive” Dolls

Mattel has gone a long way in the past decade! From the stereotypical Barbie of the 80s and 90s, the company is now launching dolls that empowers both women and men, of all walks and beliefs. Their latest line of dolls is called “Creatable World” and features “extensive wardrobe options, accessories and wigs that allow kids to style the doll with short or long hair, or in a skirt, pants, or both.”

“Toys are a reflection of culture and as the world continues to celebrate the positive impact of inclusivity, we felt it was time to create a doll line free of labels,” Kim Culmone, Senior Vice President of Mattel Fashion Doll Design, said in a statement. “Through research, we heard that kids don’t want their toys dictated by gender norms. This line allows all kids to express themselves freely which is why it resonates so strongly with them. We’re hopeful Creatable World will encourage people to think more broadly about how all kids can benefit from doll play.”
