DNach einigen Jahren Pause hat Mattel 2021 der Barbie Look Serie neues Leben eingehaucht. Die Reihe heißt jetzt Barbies Looks (mit s), die Models sind von #1 bis #6 durchnumeriert und haben alle ein neues oder modifiziertes Facemold und Made to Move Körper. Wie Mattel auf der Verpackung schreibt: „Each is ready to style, pose, photograph and post. Barbie hat also das Social Media entdeckt.
