Barbie — the iconic play doll many of us know and love — has taken a strong stand for body positvity and diversity with today's announcement that she's officially coming in different sizes, different skin tones, and with different hair colors and textures. 

While much of the national conversation has focused mainly on pop culture's lack of diversity, particular with #OscarsSoWhite, the folks over at Mattel are making a step in the right direction, making Barbie's newest lineup, the Fashionista Line, the most diverse and unique it has ever been. 

Have a look for yourself:

According to Barbie's official Twitter, the new batch of dolls will come in 4 body types (everything from slim to curvy and tall to short), 7 skin tones, 22 eye colors, and 24 hairstyles. Children will have so many possibilities when it comes to seeing themselves in these new dolls. 

Roll out for these amazing, diversified, body-positive, and empowering Barbie dolls will happen throughout the rest of the year, so it won't be long until you can have one of your very own! Yasssss, Barbie!!
