Ava DuVernay Barbie Already Sold Out!

In April Mattel announced a line of limited edition "Shero" Barbies in the likenesses of six prominent female public figures.  Honorees Include SELMA director Ava DuVernay, actress and animal activist Emmy Rossum, Lucky Magazine editor Eva Chen, screen and stage powerhouse Kristin Chenoweth, five-year-old Sydney "Mayhem" Keiser and singer Trisha Yearwood.  The toymaker has come a long way in terms of producing dolls that inspire and empower young woman and I'm thrilled to be able to share them with my own daughter.
