A Barbie doll for young girls that introduces them to Wikipedia at a young age


This doll would come with a summary of both Barbie and Wikipedia directly from Wikipedia edited so that a child between the ages of 3-9 years of age (the typical Barbie demographic) can easily read.


Young girls don't spend enough time on Wikipedia. We need to teach them about Wikipedia at a young age so that they can learn to respect it more.

Key Questions

  • How can we make a Wikipedia Barbie that looks fashionable for young girls?
  • How do we get Mattel to agree on this?

Potential Costs

advertising, sponsorship costs
