One of the latest additions is a Barbie with a hijab.
NEW YORK - The maker of Barbie has announced it will sell a doll modeled after Ibtihaj Muhammad, an American fencer who competed in last year's Olympics while wearing a hijab. "So I only had brown Barbie dolls growing up and I think that was an effort made by my parents to see us reflected in the dolls we played with".
The doll was released as part of the Sheroes series, which is dedicated to women, who inspire girls and "expand boundaries" of opportunities around the world.
"I'm proud to know that little girls everywhere can now play with a Barbie who chooses to wear hijab!"
Mattel Inc said the doll will be available online next Autumn.
"By honouring her story, we hope this doll reminds them that they can be and do anything".
After visiting the Mattel factory to weigh in on the design process, Muhammad saw her doll for the first time at the Glamour Women of the Year Summit 2017. "To be included in this conversation is very humbling and I'm over the moon about this whole thing". "It says my name on the back and it has a fencing mask and the little sabre. I just love it", she said. So I wanted to have athletic toned legs for sure. "I want to challenge the misconceptions not only outside the Muslim community, but also within the Muslim community".
The importance of representing the first-ever hijab-wearing doll is not lost on Muhammad. "Flawless hijab moment right here-this is fantastic", she exclaimed.
Ms Muhammad is also a sports ambassador and works on the US State Department's Empowering Women and Girls Through Sport Initiative. This week, Mattel introduced the first Barbie doll to wear a hijab.
