Barbie’s first hijab: Meet the new Ibtihaj Muhammad doll [Merged]

Recommended Posts

+snip+

American group Mattel unveiled its first ever hijab-wearing Barbie doll Monday in honor of US Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, who in 2016 became the first American Olympian to wear a headscarf while competing.

The doll, part of the toymaker’s “Sheroes” collection, is dressed in fencing gear as well as the hijab.

It will be on sale online from 2018, a spokeswoman told AFP.

“We are so excited to honor @IbtihajMuhammad with a one-of-a-kind #Barbie doll! Ibtihaj continues to inspire women and girls everywhere to break boundaries,” Mattel wrote on its social media accounts, accompanied by a photo of Muhammad holding the doll.

On its website, Mattel said the new Barbie is “inspiration for countless little girls who never saw themselves represented in sports and culture,” adding it hopes the doll “shows girls they can be anything.”

Welllll..... I was wondering what that thing was she was wearing. A one piece bathing suit or what? The second article said is was a fencing outfit because I am guessing that's what the girl it was modeled on did? I do not see why they don't make their own clothes for Barbie to wear. When I was a little girl, yes, I did play with my Barbie dolls. No other dolls because I was a tomboy but my sister and I would play Barbies for hours. Our Philippine maid, I loved her so much,  made us some crochet Barbie doll clothes for Christmas one year and they were so beautiful. Pantsuits and dresses. Beautiful!!!! 

I would have just made my own scarves and stuff for my Barbie. No need to have a special Barbie. She came clothed in a bathing suit. Can not wear a bathing suit out to eat or dancing or anything. And going to the beach every day is so boring. My Barbie traveled the world and I went along with her. We (my sister, Barbies and me) were USAF brats and brats travel with their parents all over the world. We had to have clothes for that and my Mom gave us scrap material to make clothes with. Lots of times, it was just an ole shirt or towel or something she tore up for us to have some scraps. :D  

Do kids not do that stuff anymore? What happened to creativity? Imagination?

That would be the Ken doll....

Wonder if he'll have a beard? I haven't kept up with the Barbie dolls. When I was a kid, the Ken doll was called, GI Joe doll. :gsbrnint:
