Even PETA is joining in the Barbie hype now.
In the first outfit package, PETA has fashioned Barbie a dress filled with “leafy greens” as well as a sign that reads, “Turn over a new leaf. Go Vegan.” The outfit was designed to look like one of PETA’s “Lettuce Ladies,” women who wear attention-grabbing clothing made out of lettuce in order to spread PETA’s message regarding animal safety.
Another outfit Barbie can wear is a T-shirt that says “Not a Nugget,” featuring an image of a chick. This outfit comes with a sign for an animal sanctuary.
But don’t forget about Ken! To go along with his love of the beach — or his career of “beach” — PETA has made Ken a “trash fishing” getup that will help him clean up his beloved seashore. His shirt says “Fish Are Friends, Not Food,” and he can hold a grabber to pick up trash like the included water bottle.
All three outfit packages come with a mini vegan starter kit for dolls to hold in their hand. They each cost $19.99 and are available for purchase online at shop.peta.org.
