Barbie is branching out.
In addition to her pink pom-pom self, we’re seeing another side of this lady’s iconic face. At this year’s Toy Fair in February, Mattel unveiled three new dolls in honor of some of the world’s greatest paintings and their respective artists.
The three dolls include the Mona Lisa Barbie, the Klimt Barbie, and the Van Gogh Barbie. Their stylings are carefully mirrored after the famous works of art and are sure to be an incredible addition to your Barbie collection. Make sure you take a good look at their makeup and clothing, because it’s spot on. These are some of the most gorgeous dolls I’ve ever seen, and their unique expressions add a little more heart and soul to the usual Barbie face.
