A limited edition Día de los Muertos Barbie is being released later this week
The $75 doll "honors the traditions, symbols and rituals often seen throughout this time," saidMattel, the toy company that owns the Barbie brand.
Barbie's long black dress is embroidered with hearts and butterflies, with colorful ruffled sleeves. Her face is painted with a skull -- a popular practice during the festival, when revelers dress up in colorful costumes and hold parades. On top of the doll's head rests a crown with monarch butterflies and marigolds.
