The Barbie brand made a doll in the image of 36-year-old Anna Kikina, who is the only woman in the Roscosmos space corporation squad since 2016, TASS reports.
The new doll was created in two versions: in a flight suit and a spacesuit for a spacewalk. It is specified that the collection is limited and will not go on sale.
Kikina herself emphasized that such a doll makes it clear that everyone who will prepare for the implementation of their ideas has a chance to become a cosmonaut.
“It is not necessary that every girl playing with such a Barbie wants to become a cosmonaut. The most important thing is that they all know that they have a choice, they have the right to choose any profession they like,” she said.
It is also reminded that the first female cosmonaut who became the prototype for a doll was Valentina Tereshkova, who flew into orbit in 1963.
