Congratulations!

Gabby Douglas Barbie Doll Released

If you’d like to show your fandom for Olympian Gabby Douglas, then here’s your chance. The record-shattering gold medalist has her own Barbie doll that’s officially hit stores.

Mattel previously gave Gabby her own custom doll as a gift ahead of the Rio Olympics, and now it’s being released nationwide.

According to PEOPLE:

On sale today for $24.99, the Gabby Douglas Barbie comes complete with a stars-and-stripes leotard, and pink and black Nike warmups.

“It’s a huge honor,” Douglas tells PEOPLE. “I always dreamed of having my own doll, and I played with Barbie when I was little with my sisters.”

“I really hope people what people take away from the Gabby Barbie doll is to be inspired, to be encouraged to be anything that you want to be. If you have a passion or a goal, set your heart to do whatever you want to do.”

Go Gabby!
