Quarantine Barbie

The above linked article tells about blogger Tanya Ruiz, http://ronandtonyaruiz.com/, and the Barbie sets she designs.

She started out giving talks about body image and about how Barbie gives children a warped image of what’s normal.

When her grandchildren found the box of items from her talks, she went on a quest with the grandchildren to find Barbie dolls that look like each member of the family.
