Dia de los Muertos is a holiday of life and culture in honor of deceased relatives and ancestors, traditionally accompanied by colorfully painted skulls and flowers.
From October 31 to November 02 of each year in the USA they celebrate the Day of the Dead – they remember dead friends, relatives and sing prayers.
This holiday is associated with bright outfits with a floral print and skeleton mask.
After the release of the film “Coco” in 2017, the world was introduced to the traditions of Mexico and the holiday Dia De Muertos.
Toy manufacturers for several years now produce dolls in the theme of the holiday.
Barbie honors the traditions and symbols of Dia De Muertos with a collectible bright doll inspired by this holiday.
Company Mattel in 2019 produced a sensation of a new doll Barbie Day of the Dead. Bright doll with the image of skulls and flowers won the hearts of doll collectors. That’s why in 2020 Mattel decided to reissue the Barbie dia de Muertos collection doll.
Quote Mattel in 2019:
“We often look at different ways to continue to engage girls and families to gain knowledge and celebrate other cultures and other parts of the world,” Michelle Chidoni, a spokeswoman for the company, said. “Our hope is for this Día de Muertos Barbie to honor the holiday for the millions that celebrate and to introduce people not familiar with the tradition to the rich meaning. “
I think the company has achieved its stated goal: the world has really learned more about the Day of the Dead holiday and its traditions.
Meet, Barbie Dia De Muertos
In 2020, the image of Barbie Dia De Muertos Doll is more delicate but colorful.
She is wearing a powder laced lush dress, decorated with pearl beads. The bottom layer of the dress is embroidered with a floral and skeleton print.
The hair has a crown of roses that hold the hands of the skeleton and gold shimmering hair strands.
Designer Javier Miabe maintained the traditional style of the holiday, but gave it a new look:
“It was very important that the second Dia De Muertos doll seemed as special as the first doll in the Barbie series,” Miab said in a statement. “As a Mexican American designer, it was important for me to use my creative voice to create a doll that would sing the vibrant colors and vivid textures of my culture, as well as the traditions I grew up with, presented and glorified in Barbie.
