On the cleverly titled blog mi blog es tu blog, Mattel's latest release, Mexican Barbie, is centre-piece with her Fiesta-ready attire, pet Chihuahua and just in case she's stopped by U.S. Homeland Security, she also comes equipped with a passport.
Mattel's Mexican Barbie comes dressed in a flowing pink dress iconic of Catherine Zeta-Jones character in the "Zorro" series, with her black hair tied with a bow and somewhat of a perm. The Mexican Barbie also has a tiny Chihuahua tucked under her left arm.
The most surprising accessory is the faux passport and "sticker sheet." No reason has been given for the extra accessory, and it would be pure speculation to say Mattel is siding with one side of the immigration issue or the other.
Are they making any sort of political statement or just being creative?
