Nigerian student’s Muslim Barbie takes Internet by storm


Barbie has yet another look, this time as a hijab-wearing Muslim.

Hijarbie is the work of a Nigerian medical student, Haneefa Adam, who wanted to give Barbie a more conservative look.

The modest style is meant to be more appealing to Muslim girls.

Hijarbie has taken Instagram by storm with more than 20,000 followers since its first post eight weeks ago.

Just last month, Barbie’s manufacturer, Mattel, announced changes to the iconic doll, including new body types, skin tones, eye colors, and hairstyles.
