Barbie Signature Inspiring Women Series Maya Angelou
What It Is

The Barbie Inspired Women Series Maya Angelou doll features the icon wearing a floral-patterned dress with matching head wrap and gold accessories. In her hands, she holds a copy of her famous book I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. This doll is sculpted to Dr. Angelou's likeness with an all-new facial sculpt and curvy body. Plus, the doll is very articulated for posing possibilities. The back of the box includes information about Dr. Angelou's life, as well as the quote "If you're always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be." The doll also includes a doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity.

Is It Fun?

The Inspiring Women Series dolls recognize female role models and inspire today's girls to learn more about historic women and dream big just as those women did. The Maya Angelou doll is a wonderful tribute to the author and activist that adults will also want to collect.

Who It’s For

What To Be Aware Of

Though this is a collectible doll, it's also for ages 6 and up, and that means that kids might want to take the doll out of the box for play or display. Adult collectors can keep the doll in the box. It does have a nice background on the inner packaging.
