As part of its varied Fashionistas range, Barbie has released its first doll with Down syndrome.
Ellie Goldstein, a trailblazing British model with Down syndrome, starred in an ad with the new Barbie.
Mattel, the makers of Barbie, collaborated closely with the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in the United States to produce the doll.
Barbie's engagement with the NDSS and medical professionals resulted in the creation of a revised face and body sculpt more resembling women with Down syndrome,
According to Mattel, the new face sculpt has a rounder contour, smaller ears,
A flat nasal bridge, with almond-shaped eyes. The doll's palms even have a single line, which is sometimes associated with people who have Down syndrome.
