A new doll is created to help sick children who are facing hair loss.

Mattel says next year it will begin production of a friend for Barbie that is bald. The new doll comes with wigs, scarves and other accessories often used by people dealing with hair loss.

Mattel plans to give the dolls directly to sick kids through the Children's Hospital Association, the Children's Cancer Foundation and other organizations.
