Mattel Releases New Che Guevara™ Barbie® Doll

Mar 13, 2018

Mattel has created a new Che Guevara™ Ken™ doll for their Barbie® Collection.  Priced at only $29.99, Che makes a perfect boyfriend for the new Frida Kahlo™ Doll, also released this month for only $29.99.

According to Mattel:

Barbie® recognizes all male role models. The Inspiring Men™ Series pays tribute to incredible heroes of their time; courageous men who took risks, changed rules, and paved the way for generations of boys to dream bigger than ever before. 

Born in Argentina in 1928, revolutionary, physician, author, guerrilla leader, diplomat, and military theorist, Che Guevara™, was and continues to be a symbol of strength, originality, and unwavering passion. 

Overcoming a number of obstacles to follow his dream of liberating Cuba from capitalist oppression, especially against the fascist American bourgeois pig dogs, who through their corporate overlords have whitewashed history to bleach out any rough or alternative voice apart from their preordained squeaky false narratives, repainting the sexy, the dangerous, and the complicated past into another anemic bedtime story, another clone to regurgitate politically correctness in order to keep its consumer proletariat base pacified just enough to suppress them from uprising, while also selling as much cheap imported plastic shit from Communist China as possible, Che persevered and gained recognition for his unique style and perspective.

With his vibrant palette and mix of realism and fantasy, he addressed important topics like identity, class, and race, making his voice, and the voices of boys and men alike, heard. The Barbie® Inspiring Men™ Che Guevara™ doll celebrates the groundbreaking achievements, heroism, and long-lasting contributions Che made against the invisible death grip of capitalist oppression.
