These two dolls are joining the collection Fashionistas Barbie, who offers dolls diverse and inclusive.

For the designer of these new dolls, the company has appealed to experts of children’s hospital UCLA, but also to a young girl of 12 years, Jordan Reeves, who wears a prosthesis on her left arm, and mentions the magazine Teen Vogue.

Three years ago, the young Jordan Reeves, who did not understand why the dolls do not look, had launched a petition to ensure that toys are more representative of individuals with a disability.

His story has finally caught the attention of Mattel, who has teamed up with girl to design the doll as realistic as possible.

The new Barbie dolls will be put on sale in the fall.
