Bald and Beautiful Barbie Doll for the Childhood Cancer Patient

When a young cancer patient lost her hair, she told her parents that she did not feel like a princess anymore. The parent of another child, who had cancer and was being treated at the same hospital asked her close friend, who just so happened to be the CEO of Mattel, to make a one-off doll for the little girl.
Her plight inspired a Facebook campaign called "Beautiful and Bald Barbie! Let's see if we can get it made." Well it looks like her prayers have been answered. After receiving more than 150,000 "likes" in less than four months, Mattel announced that it will create the bald dolls.

The bald Barbie dolls will not be sold in stores, because Mattel says it does not want to profit from them. Instead, the dolls will be distributed throughout the U.S. and Canada to hospitals treating children for cancer. The Barbies will be outfitted with hats, scarves, and wigs that can be interchanged for different looks.
