Head on over to Amazon, Target.com or Walmart.com where you can get the latest addition to the collection, the Barbie Fashionista Doll #208 With Down Syndrome for as low as $10.97! *Note if ordering from Amazon, this does have delayed shipping.
Barbie created this important doll in collaboration with The National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS).
Model Ellie Goldstein recently posed with the new doll on Good Morning America. She said, “It looks like me, and it’s beautiful, and I love it to pieces.” 🥰
This pretty doll is available on Amazon right now! She has several meaningful symbols incorporated into her outfit. First, is her pink pendant arrow necklace. It has three arrows that symbolize the third 21st chromosome that individuals with Down Syndrome have. The arrows purposefully point outwards to represent rising up and moving forward.
There are more symbols on her dress. They include butterflies which are a symbol of Down Syndrome and the colors blue and yellow which represent Down Syndrome Awareness. The doll has a shorter stature and beautiful almond-shaped eyes. both of which are common in those with Down Syndrome. She’s also rocking pink ankle foot orthoses to provide stability.
The doll is a fantastic addition to the Fashionistas Barbie line which is a diverse collection of dolls that represent various valuable members of our communities. This fun and meaningful toy is a wonderful way to celebrate those with Down Syndrome and it’s already a hit with Barbie fans!
Just check out the feedback Mattel has received:
“Thank you barbie for creating a Down syndrome doll. I’m a mother to a 6-year-old boy with Down Syndrome but I’m buying this doll for my 1-year-old daughter (keeping it in the box until she’s of age) so she can play with it. I cannot wait to tell my family and friends about this doll. Hope it’s your best-selling doll yet!”
“Happy tears. I didn’t think I would be crying about a Barbie when I woke up this morning, but here we are. My daughter with [Down Syndrome} isn’t quite old enough to play with a Barbie, but I ordered two for her (we all know the first one gets destroyed) and one for her cousin. I am so happy she will know what it’s like to have a doll that looks like her! Inclusion and representation mean the world to us.”
