Barbie has finally introduce a doll with a prosthetic leg and another that comes with a wheelchair, offering kids more diverse representations of beauty.
The new line includes different models with braided hair textures, new body types and disabilities.
"As a brand, we can elevate the conversation around physical disabilities by including them into our fashion doll line to further showcase a multi-dimensional view of beauty and fashion," Mattel said in a statement.
The company collaborated with Jordan Reeves, a 13-year-old disability activist who was born without a left forearm. She is also the founder of the nonprofit organization "Born Just Right," which develops "creative solutions that help kids with disabilities live a more enjoyable life."

Our co-founder, @jordanjustright, found her voice after discovering how much fun she could have with design. That’s why we launched #BOOSTxBJR workshops. Our next event kicks off NEXT WEEKEND (Feb 16) in Bogotá, Colombia! In the states, our next event is in Cambridge, MA April 13-14. Limb different kids can sign up at bornjustright.org.
The new line will be available in June 2019.
