    Mattel Introduces “Chemo Barbie” to Comfort Young Cancer Patients

    Okay, quick disclosure before I go ahead with this week’s Caught Being Godly: I’m not a fan of Barbie! I’m not going to elaborate on the reasoning because the point of this post is to give kudos to Mattel. Why, you ask?

    Well, Barbie is well known for her unrealistic perfection, from her tiny waist and feet to her long, slim legs and long, luscious hair. But ladies, we all know that Barbie doesn’t represent a real person. And when little girls look to Barbie, how are they even able to relate?

    Well, Mattel has introduced a new themed Barbie that is a step closer to real life—and, more importantly, real struggles. This Barbie is called the “Ella” doll, and her nickname is “Chemo Barbie”!

    Ella comes with various wigs and headscarves and has provided much needed comfort and inspiration to young girls going through chemotherapy. Ella is not a newly released Barbie doll. She was actually introduced in 2012, initially as a one-off doll for a friend of the CEO. Later, more dolls were made for U.S. hospitals and charities. But the dolls were still limited…until one mom took it upon herself to start an online petition to convince Mattel to produce more dolls. After more than 100,000 signatures, Mattel has agreed! How cool is that? So, kudos to Mattel!

    Ladies, what do you think about Chemo Barbie?
