Gabby Douglas Debuts Barbie in Her Own Likeness
Gabby Douglas and Barbie have joined forces!
The Olympian is headed back to the Olympics this summer and it seems like she has a friend with her – a mini me! To honor all of her accomplishments, both on the gymnasium floor and in the outside world, Barbie has made a doll is Douglas’ likeness.
The one-of-a-kind doll, called Shero, looks just like the athlete and even has its own USA leotard.
Douglas took to Instagram to post a photo of herself with the doll. She captioned the photo, “I’m excited to be debuting my @Barbie #Shero doll!! Let’s continue to break barriers and dram big Girls! #YouCanBeAnything #Shero.” Her fans flocked to the post to find out where they can get the doll for the little girl in their life and for themselves. Barbie has totally revamped its brand in the past few months by offering dolls that tall, curvy, petite and of different ethnic backgrounds.
