Barbie got a makeover! And a couple of the new dolls have curves, a little more melanin, and some blue hair.
In a post on Time, Mattel announced that a new line of dolls will now come in three new body shapes, which the brand is calling “petite,” “tall” and “curvy.”
The dolls will also come in a variety of skin tones.
But of course not everyone is going to be happy with the new line, and guess what? Richard Dickson, president and CEO of Mattel doesn’t care.

“Ultimately, haters are going to hate,” Dickson says. “We want to make sure the Barbie lovers love us more—and perhaps changing the people who are negative to neutral. That would be nice.”
