After years of searching and complaining! Mattel has finally come out with a AA/Hispanic
teen boy doll!
Mattel Promo Photos
I saw an old photo of a prototype of an AA boy standing by a school locker in
an old issue of Barbie Bazaar. He had a 1987 Skipper face done up like a boy. I
couldn't see the body, so I don't know what kind of body they used for him. I
wondered if they made him for an oversea market and had been searching.
I haven't been able to locate the doll or a copy of that picture since. So if you
have the photo or a link to it, please send it to me!
Now, there was a Kevin and a Scott but not AA Skipper size male in the Barbie line.
Poor AA Skipper never had an AA boyfriend.
The closest Mattel came to an AA doll in that size came was High School Musical
Chad and Zeke!
So even with a bent arm, it will be nice to have this new headsculpt to my collection!
