Zendaya Coleman is Getting Her Very Own Barbie Doll

During a recent visit to the Mattel offices, Zendaya discussed her relationship with Barbie growing up:

 

“When I was little, I didn’t have one that looked like me, so I couldn’t connect with her in that way. But getting to visit the Mattel offices and see Barbie’s vision for the future…I was able to see how they plan to diversify, broadening the horizons and the image of Barbie, and make it more, you know, open. I left the office feeling it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of.”
