“She would imitate me, putting scarves on her head,” Bingham said, according to the New York Daily News. “I’d really love to see this Barbie come with some scarves, a hat and maybe a wig, to make it interactive.”
Mattel’s statement about the campaign said it was “honored” by the request, but did not say it would manufacture the doll. But according to Forbes, Sypin and Bingham received a form letter reading: Mattel doesn’t accept ideas from outside sources. Barbie’s sales have fallen off in the 2000s.
Barbie has been an astronaut, an architect, a NASCAR driver, and a news anchor. She has been tattooed and broke up with Ken from 2004 to 2011. She is nearly 53 years old.
