Yet Another New Barbie!

Posted on: November 28, 2009

Wow–Mattel is really going nuts with this whole 50th anniversary of Barbie!!! First we had the new Palm Beach Sugar Daddy Barbie and now, we have the new Burka Barbie!

In her latest makeover, Barbie is dressed in a stylish vermilion head-to-toe burka with a mesh peep hole. She also shows off a similar lime burqa, as well as slightly less confining, traditional black hijab.

Actually, the Burka Barbie will not be sold worldwide… she is part of a 500-Barbie doll exhibition of international outfitted Barbies being auctioned by Sotheby’s to raise funds for Save The Children! The money will go towards the Rewrite the Future campaign which helps millions of children around the world effected by conflict.

Great idea!
