Barbie OOAK dolls


July 15, 2019

For years now, ever since I began collecting dolls and blogging about them, I have wished to see a Barbie doll inspired by my country. And no, not something related to vampires or that awful dress from the magazine series Barbie Around the World.

Something true and authentic, something that proudly represents my country. My wishes were torn apart when the Dolls of The World and Global Glamour series were canceled, but when Mattel announced the Inspiring Women series my heart rejoiced. I know a lot of people don’t know a lot about my country, but we have some pretty amazing and strong women over here. Elisa Leonida Zamfirescu (first female engineer in Europe), Sarmiza Bilcescu (first woman to receive a PhD in law in the world), Aurora Gruescu , (first female silviculturist engineer in the world), Sofia Ionescu (first female doctor to perform brain surgery), Nadia Comăneci ( first gymnast to be awarded a perfect score of 10.0 at the Olympic Games), and now Simona Halep – our amazing Wimbledon Women’s Singles Champion.

Share this image and let’s make this a real thing.

Simona deserves at least an OOAK Inspiring Women Barbie doll because she embodies everything Barbie now stands for. She has always believed in her dream and has fought hard to achive this. She has overcome hardship, personal feelings and is a humble and beautiful soul.

So I am asking you, Mattel, to honor her talent and work and finally acknowledge the amazing legacy my beautiful Romanian women have given to this world.

Help me by sharing the banner above, tagging Mattel and using the #MakeBarbieSimonaHalep on all your social media accounts and blogs.

We want a Simona Halep Barbie doll!
