Say "When," Mattel!
May 14, 2013 — Hello Everyone! Thank you to everyone who created that great cascade on Mattel's Facebook page in response to my email! It looked more like our Dear Mattel Girls of Color Have Birthdays Too Facebook page than Mattel's Facebook page! If you haven't done so already, please take time to reach out to both Mattel and and Party City (owned by the licensee for the Barbie party supplies, Amscan) on Facebook and let them know we're still waiting on a real answer! So far they've said they're "looking at how [they] can redesign the line," but we'd really like to know when they'll make a decision to include Barbies of color on the products. Let's keep them talking! And continue to spread the word!
