Toward the end of Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie , a documentary premiering this Friday on Hulu, we see a team of Mattel marketing and design executives anxiously refresh their browsers on identical Mac laptops, waiting for the publication of a Time cover story on a diverse new line of Barbie dolls — it includes petite, tall, and curvy figures, as well as a variety of skin tones and hair textures. Directed and produced by Andrea Nevins, the documentary asks viewers to sympathize with the folks at Mattel — judging by the film, mostly women — who are tasked with the challenge of transforming this symbol of constricting female beauty standards into one of diversity and empowerment. As the informative first half of Tiny Shoulders explains, Barbie was the brainchild of an empowered woman, Ruth Handler, who founded Mattel in postwar California with her husband, Elliot. Still, Barbie was a hard sell at first. Unsurprisingly, this was because of her body. Up until then, dolls were not representations of adult women, but of babies, which offered little girls the chance to practice those all-important nurturing skills. Culmone, who led the push to include a wider variety of body types and ethnicities among Barbie dolls, describes growing up as an only child and delighting in her then-notably undiverse Barbies. Or do the cartoonishly lifelike dolls and their suite of accessories simply afford girls a world to get lost in — a chance for the kind of exploratory play that often comes baked into entertainment aimed at boys, from model trains to Lincoln Logs to Legos?
This auction is for a - Teen Talk - Barbie Doll. She is in good used condition, but does have some corrosion in her battery housing. She takes watch size batteries so I cannot guarantee that she will work. She is very pretty with little rose shaped red earrings. Hopefully someone can give her a new home. Please check out all my other auctions!
