    DID YALL NOTICE THEY GAVE THE BARBIES BLACK NAMES AS WELL TRICHELLE,JANESSA AND KIANNA

    The first Black Barbie came out in 1980 but she basically looked like a White one dipped in chocolate. I guess they’re going into detail by make some of them light-skinned, giving her fuller lips and a broader nose. It’d be funny if they really did give her a bigger ass. But I’m just glad they’re making Barbies that our girls can identify with more.

  • lovely one

  • Miss_NC

    I bet the little ones are suppose to be their kids instead of little sisters! LMAO!

    @Infinit45 (Kanye was out of pocket)

    Calm down… if you click on the link you’ll read the child is introduced as their “KID SISTERS” not daughters. LMAO.

    I LOVE THE NEW DOLLS!!!! YOU KNOW THEY’LL BE EXPENSIVE.

  • Darkesthourglass

    They have kid sisters (just like the white ones) but you know that’s not what a lot of people’ll be thinking when you see them on the shelves. They’ll have to write it in BIG letters.

  • ms truth

    highly adorable. I would buy for any girl.

  • Infinit45 (Kanye was out of pocket)

    @Simone
    If you say so! I read it but just wait, parent will be complaining that they have kids.
