#FridaKahlo #Barbie doll banned from shop shelves in #Mexico

frida36-11.pngFrida Kahlo Barbie doll banned from shop shelves in Mexico – BBC News – Her great-niece, Mara Romeo, told AFP news agency that the doll’s complexion was too light.

“I would have liked the doll to have traits more like Frida’s, not this doll with light-coloured eyes,” she said.

After the decision was made, Mrs Romeo told AFP she was “thrilled” and thought justice was “finally being done”.

“It should have been a much more Mexican doll,” she said, “with darker skin, a unibrow, not so thin because Frida was not that thin… dressed in more Mexican clothing, with Mexican jewellery.”
