Barbie has never been the most relatable young lady. Anatomically speaking she is more like a giraffe than a person and her boob-hip-bum ratio could only be achieved by removing a couple of ribs. And we won’t even talk about her hoo-ha.
That’s we we had to do a double take when we saw the latest version. The new “Shero” collection will be modeled after Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, who, became the first American to compete in the games while wearing a hijab in 2016.
“I’m proud to know that little girls everywhere can now play with a Barbie who chooses to wear hijab! This is a childhood dream come true,” Muhammad said in a tweet. The doll will go on sale in 2018.
Barbie have been working really hard to make their collection more diverse, which is great news for us normals. We are really looking forward to Onesie-on-the-couch-eating-mini-boost-bars Barbie. Maybe 2019 will be our year.
