Barbie goes bald for kids with cancer

Mattel has announced that it would be producing a bald version of the famous Barbie doll for distribution to children’s hospitals directly reaching girls who are most affected by hair loss as they deal with cancer and alopecia.

This move followed an online campaign started by parents to encourage the company to create a doll to help children suffering from hair-loss feel better about themselves.

The dolls will come with wigs, hats, scarves and other fashion accessories. However, the dolls will not be available for sale in retail stalls.
