Mattel Announces Plans for Bald Barbie

Barbie is about to get a new, bald friend. Mattel announced Tuesday that the company would be creating a hairless doll to help kids dealing with hair loss. The new doll will have wigs, hats, and scarves to accessorize. The company won’t sell the doll, but instead will donate them to children’s hospitals and other medical centers around the world. The decision follows a Facebook campaign aimed at getting Mattel to help children who are either losing their hair or watching a loved one go through the process.
