Oprah Winfrey has accomplished a lot in her lifetime. At 64, she is one of the richest women in history, is the proud owner of her own TV network and is the recipient of a Presidential Medal of Freedom — and now she can add having a Barbie doll made in her likeness to that list.
Winfrey’s Barbie doll is based off of Mrs. Which, her character from the new “A Wrinkle in Time” movie. Winfrey’s castmates, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, also had Barbie dolls created based off their characters.
“To now have a doll made in the image of your character is a pretty phenomenal moment,” the media mogul told Yahoo Entertainment. “It is not lost on me that that has happened… It’s a pretty phenomenal thing.”
Having a Barbie doll made to look like her is particularly significant to Winfrey, who said brown Barbies did not exist when she was growing up, and she wasn’t able to afford the popular toy, anyway.
“I had, literally, a corncob doll … where you take the corn, shuck it, and then you try to make a little doll and you use the silk for the hair,” she told Yahoo.
All three dolls are currently available on Barbie’s website, so you can now own a mini Oprah for $50.
