This is not the first time Barbie pays homage to Mexico

Leer en español

Barbie has decided to pay homage to Mexico, once again, and painted her face as a Catrina to remember and celebrate those who have already passed away on the traditional Day of the Dead, which takes place on November 1st and 2nd.

For the occasion, Barbie has launched a new doll inspired by the Mexican traditional celebration. It is now available online in Mexico.

The Barbie doll features a suit decorated with printed flowers, a floral crown made of cempasúchil, and her face is painted like a Mexican skull.
 

This is not the first time this doll pays homage to Mexico since its collections “Inspiring Women” launched its edition of painter Frida Kahlo and golfer Lorena Ochoa. However, there is a dispute regarding the doll inspired by Frida Kahlo.
