For a while now, toy manufacturer Mattel has been putting forth efforts to make Barbie dolls more inclusive. So far, she’s proven to be more than just a pretty face as she joined the workforce as a doctor and an astronaut, and she even became available in more than one body type to try to show little girls that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes!

This time people have some very mixed feelings about the new coloured doll.
