You can finally get your hands on Ibtihaj Muhammad's hijabi Barbie
Ibtihaj Muhammad has gained immense success since making Olympic history in 2016 (she was the first US Olympian to compete in a hijab). Since then, the Muslim-American has made it onto Time's 100 Most Influential list, fronted Nike's game-changing Pro Hijab campaign and even announced the release of her very own Barbie doll.
Now, the Mattel must-have has officially hit the shelves and you can get your very own hijabi Barbie in the form of the fencing champion.
Marking Mattel's first ever creation with a hijab, the Barbie launch was celebrated by the Olympian, who announced the news via Instagram with a post that said: "She’s finally here! I’m happy to announce that you can now have your very own Ibtihaj Barbie doll starting today!"
The barrier-breaking doll features the athlete’s own figure and a strong eyeliner wing. Explaining the importance of the eyeliner, Muhammad told People magazine: "I like to think of my eyeliner as a shield of power. I not only wear it to the grocery store but I also wear it to compete. I wore it to the Olympic games, so I wanted my Barbie to have the perfect winged liner and also to wear a hijab."
Now, take a look at the other inspirational Barbie dolls released for International Women's Day earlier this year.
