Perhaps in response to criticism on Barbie's original body shape (and declining sales), Mattel has released the 2016 Barbie Fashionistas featuring more realistic body types and an assortment of skin tones.

The new curvy Barbie has a bigger bust, behind, thicker thighs and a protruding tummy. She landed on the cover of Time magazine on Thursday with the headline "Now can we stop talking about my body?"
