The Day That Barbie Became a Hijabie

Hijarbie, the official name of the hijab-wearing Barbie dolls, is the brainchild of Haneefah Adam, a 24-year-old blogger and medical scientist from Nigeria. She says that she was inspired by a Barbie style page to create a doll dressed in a way that looked more like her. Since launching it on Instagram 11 weeks ago, it has grown incredibly quickly and currently has over 49,000 followers! In response to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from both parents and girls, they are now working on bringing it to market.
