Barbie has had a million careers over the years, but most recently, she’s stepping into the courtroom.
Mattel announced Monday the release of its new Barbie Judge Doll, which marks its 2019 Barbie Career of the Year doll. The toy company chose the career after learning that only 33% of sitting U.S. state judges are women, Lisa McKnight, senior vice president and global brand general manager of Barbie, told USA Today.
“The Barbie Judge Doll encourages girls to learn more about making decisions to change the world for the better,” the company wrote via Twitter.
The doll is available at Target, Walmart and Amazon for $12.99, and it’s available in a variety of skin tones and hairstyles.
