While I enjoyed playing with the occasional Bratz doll with my younger sister as a kid, I found that I didn't find them as appealing as my regular Barbies. I suppose it might have had to do with the fact that their heads were way too large for their bodies.
However, I might have been able to overlook their abnormal proportions had the dolls been modeled after some of the most influential women known to the world.
Artist Wendy Tsao brilliantly began altering the Bratz dolls after reading a children's book about the primatologist and activist Jane Goodall.
She decided the dolls needed a massive transformation.
Tsao told BuzzFeed:
“I don’t know the answer, but I wonder if a child who plays with a doll of someone who is a real person who did some amazing things might think more about real-life things, and appreciate more the real potential that lies within all of us, than when she or he plays with say, a Disney character or Bratz doll.”
Check out the other incredible women Tsao also featured:
This doll is perfect for your little one who is dreaming about someday becoming an artist!
If your boy or girl is feeling a little insecure, give them this gift of bravery. Malala has faced adversity and she is still a strong, positive beacon of light. Your little kid can be, too.
Does your child want to become a writer when they grow up? Rowling will grant the power of creativity and imagination. She did create the entire Harry Potter series after all.
From model to UN Ambassador, Waris's tale of escaping an arranged marriage in Somalia and becoming an outspoken voice against female genital mutilation is such an inspiration.
Does your child dream of the stars and one day perhaps blasting into space? Canada's first female in space, Roberta, is just the doll for your son or daughter.
I can't wait for the Ronda Rousey, RuPaul, Pocahontas, Amy Poehler, and Tina Fey dolls. Now those are the types of role models I want my little kids to look up to.
