There's a new collection of dolls hitting store shelves, they're called the Barbie Dolls of the World. There is one from Mexico that has some people upset.
According to Mattel – the doll comes in their words "dressed for a fabulous fiesta in her vibrant pink dress with ruffles, lace, and brightly colored ribbon accents." She also comes with a Chihuahua - that has some calling out the company for being racially insensitive.
Mattel is standing by the doll, saying Mexico Barbie is 1 of 100 Barbie Dolls of the World. Current dolls wear a country-inspired outfit and have a passport and animal.
Is the doll offensive or just creative?
