One of the world's most famous children's toys, Barbie, has been given a makeover - wearing a burkha.
Wearing the traditional Islamic dress, the iconic doll is going undercover for a charity auction in connection with Sotheby's for Save The Children.
The company director of Laird Assessors from The Wirral, Cheshire, said: 'Bring it on Burkha Barbie, I think this is a great idea.
'I think this is really important for girls, wherever they are from they should have the opportunity to play with a Barbie that they feel represents them.
Det forlyder ikke hvorvidt Ken også vil komme i en ny version. Man kunne forestille sig en pakkeløsning: Én Ken med fire Barbier. Lige til at lægge under juletræet... Nåe nej.
