Barbie is breaking down gender barriers in their new advert
The advert is for Moschino Barbie, a collaboration between Barbie and luxury fashion brand, Moschino:
It is the first time since Mattel launched the doll in 1959 that an advert has prominently featured a boy.
The advertisement shows the boy playing with the doll with two girls. The little boy seems to be loving the doll, calling her ‘Fierce.’
The video has had a favourable reception, with one commenter writing: “This almost made me cry! I used to play with my sister’s Barbies and felt such shame afterward. I’m so glad we can just let kids be kids. Thank you for this! Boys like dolls too!”
