Mattel Releases First Gender-Neutral Doll



According to The Hollywood Reporter, "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," said a Mattel rep.

"The creators of Barbie are releasing what they’re calling the first gender-neutral doll.

"Mattel’s new Creatable World line offers six dolls with short hair, flat chests and slim figures in a range of skin tones. Announced Wednesday, the dolls are available at retailers including Amazon, Target and Walmart ($30 each). Accessories allow kids to customize the toys with wigs to create long hair or clothes including tutus, jeans, camouflage pants, graphic tees, sweatpants, red flannels, purple jerseys, rose-printed bomber jackets and splatter-paint overalls.”

  5. There is a GREAT article on the dolls in this weeks Time Magazine.
    In a related note, the sale of the dolls will be most interesting, especially when they are (possibly?) marketed at Wal-Mart in the South.

    "I 'hear' certain groups will be marketing a 'SOUTHERN FUNDAMENTALIST PREACHER DOLL' complete with BIG BLACK 'Good Book' to hit the 'wayward demon dolls' over the the head in order to 'heal' their 'affliction'.
