Handout photo from Mattel showing new Barbie doll body shapes of petite, tall and curvy next to the traditional Barbie

New Barbie doll body shapes of petite, tall and curvy are seen next to the traditional Barbie (L) in a photo released by Mattel on January 28, 2016. Barbie, the world’s most famous doll, has a new body. In fact, she has three new bodies – petite, tall and curvy. Some 57 years after the impossibly busty and narrow-waisted blue-eyed Barbie doll was first introduced, California-based toy maker Mattel on Thursday released the new models, which it says better reflect a changing world.
