Many little girls unwrapped Barbie dolls this Christmas.

However, a new version of the Barbie doll could well be on its way with several artists hoping to accurately portray the average-sized female body.

Some of these new versions are stirring up controversy, but the depiction of Barbie with a double-chin and curvier shape is sparking a big debate. Many take issue with the doll's shape and size.

A Facebook group, Plus Size Modeling, wants the plus-sized doll on the market.

Some say it will probably make kids feel more confident they don't have to look or be the exact same size as the original Barbie.

Mattel has not confirmed if something like this will hit store shelves.
