Can You Preorder the Día de los Muertos Barbie? Even Grownups Are Obsessed with the Doll

By

It's September, which basically means it's already time to celebrate all things spooky. What makes this time of year even more exciting, is that Mattel has announced a new Barbie to celebrate with us: Día de los Muertos (or Day of the Dead) collectible Barbie. She comes with a long, black dress which is covered in gorgeous hearts and butterflies, as well as traditional ruffled sleeves. Barbie's regular makeup routine (blue eyeshadow, bubblegum lipstick) is replaced with sugar skull makeup. She also has a marigold and butterfly crown resting on top of her braided hair. Mattel says Día de los Muertos Barbie "honors the traditions, symbols and rituals often seen throughout this time."
