The doll is part of a collection of five models created by the company in honor of doctors and researchers fighting the covid pandemic. The BBC news server informed about it. “I want my doll to show children professions they may not know about, such as vaccinology,” said scientist Sarah Gilbert.

The vaccinologist began developing the product in Oxford laboratories in early 2020, when the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 first appeared in China. According to the BBC, its Oxford / AstraZeneky vaccine is now the most widely used vaccine in the world, with more than 170 countries receiving doses.

“I want to inspire new generations of girls to pursue a career in science, and I hope that the children my Barbie sees will realize how important a career in science is to the world around us,” said Gilbert, whose scaled-down version seemed very strange at first.

In addition to Gilbert, according to Sky News, Amy O’Sullivan, a nurse in the New York emergency room who treated the first patient with a covid; Las Vegas doctor Audrey Cruz and Toronto psychiatrist Chika Stacy Oriuwa, who fought discrimination and racism; researcher Jacqueline Goes de Jesus, who led the team sequencing the genome of the Brazilian variant of the covid, and Dr. Kirby Whitby, co-founder of the company that created washable and reusable surgical gowns for doctors.

Toy giant Mattel has released several Barbie doll series in recent years in response to criticism that it is creating unrealistic ideals of female beauty. The company now offers a wide range of dolls of different skin tones and body types, which overlap from the original model from 1959. The first doll at the time took on the form of a blonde and slender white woman.
