Doll Review: Misty Copeland Barbie

Internet-captured photo of Misty Copeland Barbie

Misty Copeland is the first African American female Principal Dancer with the American Ballet Theater.  Copeland now has her own Barbie made in her likeness.  The doll uses the new Misty sculpt and new ballet body.  


The following video review is brought to you by My Froggy Stuff:




I was able to order before the dolls sold out.   Did you order?

  1. Not to be a weirdo, but I'd like to see the doll nude to compare her body. I don't have a Made to Move doll. Do they have thigh articulation like this doll?

    1. I don't have a Made to Move Barbie either, Muff. I believe Vanessa does and Julian mentioned he has several. Hopefully they or someone else can answer your question.

      She has super calves, though. :-)

    2. Muff, the Made to Move dolls do have thigh articulation. Here is a link to my review on them which also includes nude photos. http://adayinthelifeofmydolls2.blogspot.com/2015/11/made-to-move-barbie-review.html

  2. I didn't get to preorder in time. My daughter is a dancer, and I would really love to get her this doll for her last dance recital in June. I just saw that the doll will be sold in Target starting May 19th, so I'll have to haunt the stores then.

  3. By the time I got home the window to pre-order was and she was no longer available. So I too will look for her in Target. Wish me luck.
