Barbie Makes History!

Mattel has unveiled the first ever hijab-wearing Barbie doll! It’s been designed after Olympian sabre fencer Ibtihaj Muhammed.

She was the first Muslim American woman to wear a hijab while competing for the US in the Olympics.

The doll is part of Barbie’s ‘Shero’ line which celebrates women breaking boundaries.
