Mexican Barbie: Does Mattel offend or honor?

Posted: Updated:

Mattel is out with a new line of Barbie dolls, representing cultures from around the world. And the one that has people talking is "Mexican Barbie."

She comes in a colorful fiesta dress, with a Chihuahua and a passport.

Some say this represents cultural diversity -- others say it stereotypes Mexican citizens.

The other dolls of the world come with passports and pets as well.

Do you think it's a good idea for Mattel to promote different cultures, or do you think its stereotypical? Leave us a comment or join the conversation on Facebook.
