Mattel To Make Bald Barbie For Kids With Cancer
Mattel has created a bald Barbie after a Facebook campaign asked the toy company to make a hairless version of the doll for children dealing with cancer treatments, alopecia or trichotillomania. According to Womansday.au, the campaign for the “Bald and Beautiful Barbie” was started in January by Jane Bingham and Rebecca Sypin, both of whom have daughters who lost their hair due to cancer treatment.
“These dolls, which will be a friend of Barbie, will be distributed exclusively to children’s hospitals and other hospitals treating children with cancer throughout the U.S. and Canada, directly reaching girls who are most affected by hair loss,” said Mattel Company spokesman Alan Hilowitz in a statement.
