Barbie Unveils Sheroes Line - But You Can't Get The Chloe Kim Doll!

Chloe Kim - Olympic Gold Medalist Snowboarding
Nicole Adams Obe - Boxing Champion
Ibtihaj Muhammed - Fencing Champion

It's true, girls need more positive role models. We love that Barbie has started making dolls for girls that inspire them to dream big, and set the world on fire. From artists, chefs, journalists, scientists, to astronauts, aviators, activists, filmmakers and athletes, this new Global #Shehero line of dolls has a role model for just about everyone - but we have to say that we'd love to see a female skateboarder and surfer in the line up too!

Pro snowboarder and Olympic gold medalist, Chloe Kim, is one of the 17 role models - current & historic - honored in the new collection.

“Barbie’s message — to show girls that they can be anything — is something I can get behind,” the 17-year-old Kim said in a media statement. “I’m so honored to be considered a role model and want girls to know that they can be athletic and girly at the same time!”

We were super excited to see Chloe in this line up, and even pictured her doll sitting in on our office shelf, but then we became disappointed when we found out that only the Frida Kahlo, Amelia Earhart and Katherine Johnson dolls will actually be available to purchase - the rest of these amazing role model dolls are "one of a kind" and not for sale according to Barbie/ Mattel's statement on Instagram today.

Our bubble just burst....
