Great News! Barbie Can Now Wear Flats & Is More Diverse

After 56 years on her tippy-toes, Barbie can finally kick off her heels and relax.

According to Cosmopolitan, Mattel has released a new line of Barbie dolls called "Fashionistas," in which the dolls have adjustable ankles that allow them to wear flat shoes.

But Barbie's makeover certainly doesn't stop at her feet. Even more importantly, she's gotten a lot more diverse. The Fashionista line will include "eight different skin tones, 14 different facial sculpts, 18 eye colors, 22 hair styles, and 23 hair colors."

In other words, she's starting to look a lot more like me and you.

We're happy to see this positive change! What do you think of Barbie's new look?
