You can now own your own Ava DuVernay Barbie doll. DuVerney’s doll is part of Barbie’s new Sheroes collection released on Friday. The collection celebrates barrier breaking women who have inspired young girls.
“Started by a female entrepreneur and mother, this brand has a responsibility to continue to honor and encourage powerful female role models who are leaving a legacy for the next generation of glass ceiling breakers,” said Evelyn Mazzocco, general manager of Barbie, said in a press release.
The Ava Barbie is the perfect gift for the Carefree Black Girl or Carefree Black Boy (no need for gendered toys) in your life.
