Barbie has gotten a lot of criticism for her unrealistic body.  Lately the makers of Barbie have tried to move away from the embodiment of unattainable standards for women and focus on something more aspirational.  First they started a campaign encouraging young girls (and boys) to use Barbie to be whatever they want to be.  Now they've added three new body types, tall, short and curvy, to try to address the body image issues that Barbie is famous for.
