Mattel, the makers of Barbie, has been releasing new dolls to make more girls feel included and feel closer to Barbie now more than ever (which I think any parent can appreciate). And now, Barbie Released a Doll in a Wheelchair to add to that collection and parents seem to be very happy about it.
The Barbie Fashionistas Doll comes with a Rolling Wheelchair and Ramp. You can get her with blonde hair or Brunette.
“Barbie doll has 22 “joints” Across her neck, upper arms, elbows, wrists, torso, hips, upper legs, knees and ankles so she can comfortably sit and maneuver in her wheelchair.”
They made a barbie in a wheel chair. I am not a fan of barbie but the last ones that look different are alright and that one in a wheel chair I really had to get it

If you read the thread, it sounds like a Barbie in a wheel chair had previously existed but been discriminated at some point. Glad to see she’s back. – Everyone means every one. (Thanks @Simply_Rain_S for sharing!) https://t.co/v2FkoMUbYs
