Mattel announced they would be making an Abby Wambach Barbie doll! That’s right. There will soon be an out, proud, two-time Olympic gold medalist, FIFA Women’s World Cup champion, masculine presenting Barbie!
Mattel made the announcement at the MAKERS conference in California. During the announcement, Abby stated that she played with Barbies in her childhood, though they didn’t necessarily look how she felt. But today, she and many others will now have a Barbie they can relate to.
