Barbie's ridiculously svelte-yet-busty figure has been at the center of many-body image controversies over the years. Barbie is made by Mattel on a 1/6 scale, which is the standard scale for action figures. Barbie's measurements would then be 38-18-28. (reports vary based on versions of dolls). Various outlets and organizations have pointed out that her proportions are more than just an unrealistic standard; they would render a human woman physically incapable of walking, holding her head up, or having fully functioning internal organs. Mattel responded to calls for change by releasing a variety of dolls with different body types, skin tones, and hairstyles.
