    Bout damn time!!!

    Clay Harley says:

    Yes, because Africa has had them for decades, right?

    MG Wray says:

    Love this!

    MG Wray says:

    Top thing: of course it’s just great that this hero will be available as a toy for children so they can learn about her and remember her life’s work.

    That said, I am legit excited about the doll itself. The hair? Yes. That dress? Yes PLEASE. The expression. Serious yet mild. Here for it. Looks like her arms are articulated too. Quality.

    David Abrams says:

    They should offer a picture book to go with it too.

    PettiBetti87 says:

    @David Abrams Great idea!

    David Abrams says:

    @PettiBetti87 Extremely young children might not realize what a journalist does and the context. So, I think it would help them to have a model of play as a choice with this doll that’s not obvious to young children.

    David DeLaet says:

    Ok, why is this a story 🙄

    Charms of Love says:

    Inspiring young girls to be icons not palace princesses waiting to be rescued by a prince who’s not coming

    The Ken Dickerson Podcast says:

    Woke

    Clay Harley says:

    @The Ken Dickerson Podcast …boys WITHOUT FATHERS need inspiration. A normal strong family unit doesn’t need outside interference from the general public.

    Clay Harley says:

    @The Ken Dickerson Podcast …Sadly, they’ll never mention him. 🤷🏼

    The Ken Dickerson Podcast says:

    @Clay Harley agreed

    The Ken Dickerson Podcast says:

    @David Abrams great suggestion

    The Ken Dickerson Podcast says:

    @Clay Harley They won’t because successful men aren’t as marketable as successful women that don’t need no man

    Madre V. Por Vida says:

    Wow it looks so cool I’d love the outfit most of all!

    T_money_ THIRD says:

    Lmao

    r rosen says:

    Beautiful ❣️

    exposingthetruth says:

    I’m waiting for them to make Kensington barbie… or maybe the kamala barbie that cackles until her heels come up. Let’s put true modern characters on these new toys

    StalinTheMan0fSteel says:

    Next is a morbidly obese Barbie to immortalize Stacey Abrams and a 80 year old Ken doll (with removable diapers) to immortalize Joe Biden. 😁

    Yoda Mane says:

    😂 💀

    TruckerExile E says:

    Shout out to George Floyd on 597 days of sobriety. It took some tough love but he did it. Say his name liberals!

    Clay Harley says:

    I’ll wait until I see the tox report. 🕵🏿

    TruckerExile E says:

    To all libs… Go love yourself and let’s go Brandon, I agree!!!

    Marshan #DisneyDiva Thomas says:

    Thats what i am saying

    Make Racists Afraid Again says:

    Journalists are great human beings.

    Clay Harley says:

    I just adore sarcasm!

    Yoda Mane says:

    Nice 👍. Beyonce got her own Barbie out

    Linda Minton says:

    Yet a Cardi B barbie would sell more.

    Clay Harley says:

    Would her doll have a button that makes her wet? 🤡

    Clay Harley says:

    Inspires blacks to steal Barbie dolls, too.
