Mattel Releases ‘Day of the Dead’ Barbie

Mattel has just released a limited-edition ‘Day of the Dead’ Barbie in celebration of the Mexican holiday Día de Muertos – but some critics are not happy with the doll. The toy features ‘sugar skull’ face paint, a headdress and a black, floral, Mexican dress and is available to buy at Walmart, Target and Amazon.com for $75. But some people have called out the brand accusing it of ‘cultural appropriation’.
