Barbie dolls now with a Hijab

A new type of Barbie styling has gone viral on social media. This Barbie wears a hijab, a traditional head cover worn by many Muslim women.

A medical scientist from Nigeria, Haneefa Adam, came up with the idea of putting a hijab on the world famous doll. She posted pictures of the Hijarbie on Instagram and they have been much liked.

Adam says that she always saw Barbie dolls dressed in very short clothes and wanted to make them something that Muslim children could relate to as well. She is now getting requests from people all over the world who want to buy the Hijarbie.
