The first hijab Barbie is launched

Toy manufacturing company Mattel, the creators of the Barbie doll, have added a 10th design to their β€˜Sheroes’ range, which is inspired by female heroes who expand possibilities for women all over the world.

The latest addition to the Sheroes range is a Barbie doll in the image of Ibtihaj Muhammad, an Olympic fencer who made history when she competed for the US in a hijab. This will be the first-ever Barbie to wear a hijab, which shows significant progression from the unrealistic expectations the classic Barbie Doll has been previously criticised for.
