Just weeks short of her 57th birthday, Barbie is getting a major makeover. The normally blue-eyed slim blonde bombshell with unusually long legs is changing her look.
The company is adding tall, petite and curvy body types to a new line of more ethnically diverse dolls, reports CBS News correspondent Mireya Villarreal. The new models will be sold alongside the original model.
Barbie has evolved as the times have changed. At 11 and a half inches tall, Barbie has had more than 180 careers and has become a pop culture icon, leading the toy industry as a billion-dollar business. The new looks are meant to be more appealing as representative of a wider population of young girls.
The new dolls will be available online starting Jan. 28, 2016.
