Not The Barbie You Played With

 

 

Mattel is going to sell a Day of the Dead Barbie doll beginning on Thursday. The doll will be available from Amazon.com, Target and Walmart. Barbie’s face is painted in a traditional skull mask as she wears a black gown with yellow butterflies and a traditional Day of the Dead headpiece.

 

Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a 3,000-year-old ritual, started by the Aztecs that spread north from Mexico into the states. It is marked with festivals, cemetery visitation and vibrant skull face painting.

 

The doll will retail for $75.00.
