Meet The Designer:
The designer Stacey McBride is doing an amazing thing by not only creating Barbie Dolls that can relate to little girls of color but she has also give each a very aspirational side letting them know that there are so many options out there for them to dream about and become. I have to say that Grace and I, the light skin, long haired, cheer caption, have so much in common! Where was she when I was little... =)
