Introducing the brand-new Jane Goodall Barbie doll! This incredible Barbie is the newest honouree in the Inspiring Women series – and the first doll in Mattel’s Barbie collection made from recycled ocean-bound plastic.
Created in partnership between Mattel and the Jane Goodall Institute, the Jane Goodall Barbie doll inspires generations of changemakers to make a difference for people, other animals, and the planet we share.
Barbie is recognising renowned ethologist and conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall with the first ever Inspiring Women doll made from recycled ocean bound plastic and certified CarbonNeutral created in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI).
“My entire career, I’ve wanted to help inspire kids to be curious and explore the world around them,” Goodall says. “I’m thrilled to partner with Barbie and encourage young children to learn from their environment and feel a sense that they can make a difference”
The new doll’s launch coincides with the 62nd anniversary of Goodall’s first visit to Tanzania’s Gombe National Park, where she conducted groundbreaking research on wild chimpanzees.
Since Dr. Jane Goodall’s historic journey to Tanzania at age 26 to study chimpanzees in their natural habitat, she has paved the way for generations of future humanitarian leaders to forge their own path. Her life-long work as a renowned ethologist, conservationist, and animal advocate, has been a tour de force of compassion and a benefit to our entire planet.
