Cardi B may be famed for being a rapper and former reality TV star. Now she is adding ‘doll designer’ to her resume too…

The Grammy-winning artist announced on Friday that she would be releasing a doll, inspired by herself later this year.

According to the star, the doll which is manufactured under the toy brand Real Women Are, was designed so that her three-year-old daughter Kulture had a toy which ‘looks like them’.

She said in a video announcement; “As everyone knows, I’m a mom. And today, more than ever, it’s important to me to give my daughter inspiration and bad**s women to look up to….[it] is a chance for me to provide my daughter and other little girls something that looks like them to play with to inspire them.

“We’re in the White House now, but we’re still so far behind in other places. Representation matters.”

But whilst many are ‘adding to cart’, others are up in arms over the limited-edition piece

A number of tweeps have hailed the doll ‘inappropriate for children’. They’ve also found fault with the doll’s appearance and selection of clothing.

Cardi B’s doll follows hot on the heels of another doll designed by a celebrity – Serena Williams

The tennis star created the Qai Qai doll, inspired by her daughter Alexis’s own doll of the same name.

“There’s something really special about the relationship between a child and their favorite toy. Qai Qai has been around for more than half of Olympia’s life and she still takes her everywhere we go,” Serena said in an announcement

“Qai Qai is no ordinary doll, and it is amazing to see her use social media to educate, inspire and bring a smile to audiences from all backgrounds.”
