“I’m excited to be debuting my @Barbie Shero doll! Let’s continue to break barriers and dream big Girls! #YouCanBeAnything #Shero,” the 20-year-old athlete wrote as she unveiled the doll on Instagram.
Gabby added in a statement, “I love a challenge. I love to push limits and I love that my very own Barbie celebrates me for being a role model to girls. Being honored as a Barbie Shero further motivates me to inspire girls by being the best I can be.”
The fashions for the doll were inspired by Douglas’ own signature GK leotard line that she wears while training hard in the gym. Dressed in a red, white and blue Gabby GK Elite leotard, the doll comes complete with a Nike warm-up suit. The doll is fully articulated, allowing her to do almost all of the moves Gabby performs.
