Barbie is chubby..why can't I be just like her?

Plus Size Modeling conducted a poll on its Facebook page on Dec. 18th. They asked, “Should toy companies start making Plus Sized Barbie dolls?” In just under two weeks, a picture of the poll has received over 40,000 likes, 5,000 comments and 2,700 shares.
