Cardi B Has Released Her Own Limited Edition Doll
On March 5, Cardi B announced via social media that she was teaming up with Real Women Are to release her own doll. The Limited Edition Cardi B Doll was only available for pre-order until March 8. Dolls will be begin to be shipped out in July. In an Instagram post, the “Be Careful” rapper said the doll was inspired, designed and created by her.
During an appearance on the Today show, the Bronx, New York rapper said releasing her own doll was important to her because of the lack of diversity she has seen among dolls.
“…Growing up, I ain’t never seen a doll that looked like me, I’ve never seen a doll that really represents me,” she said. “When you go to the doll aisle when you was my age, it’s either like there’s a real white one, there’s a real dark one, and there’s like barely one that’s like in the middle. None of them have my style, none of them have my flavor, and it’s like I want a doll that represents me.”
