Mrs. Which - Oprah Barbie from A Wrinkle in Time

Image of Oprah Winfrey in the role of Mrs. Which from the movie, A Wrinkle in Time, appears on the back of the box of Mrs. Which Barbie.

The movie, A Wrinkle in Time, starring Oprah Winfrey as Mrs. Which, premieres today, March 9, 2018.  I have no plans to see the movie in the theater, but I wanted the doll because, well, it's a portrait doll of Oprah.

My Mrs. Which arrived a couple of weeks ago, purchased from Barbie.mattel.  The doll is not an exact replica of Oprah -- her face could have been fuller -- but I am pleased with the doll's overall appearance.  When you look at the doll, you can see Oprah.  The multiple photos I took are shared below:

The portrait doll of Oprah Winfrey in her role as Mrs. Which in the Disney movie, A Wrinkle in Time is an 11-1/2-inch vinyl doll on a Curvy Barbie articulated body.   Included with the doll are a doll stand and certificate of authenticity.
Her dress has a silver lamé top with multiple silver cords wrapped around the bodice.
She wears a dark bronze skirt made of a raw silk-type fabric.
Mrs. Which wears gold shoes as shown in this photo courtesy of Romona Jennings.
Her blonde hair is styled in one long braid.

The synopsis of the movie on the back of the box reads as follows:

In Disney's A Wrinkle in Time, Meg Murry embarks on an epic adventure across the universe to find her missing father.  Traveling to worlds unknown as she fights against an evil force that threatens to cover the world in darkness, Meg has three celestial beings as her guides.  Known as Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Whatsit, these three women are powerful warriors made of stardust, each with a special role in Meg's journey.  Mrs. Which is the most ancient and wise, inspiring Meg to be a warrior herself.

On March 7, 2018, Oprah appeared on Good Morning America with the Mrs. Which doll to promote the movie.  She does that and gives some sage advice to a 14-year-old girl who raised $50,000 for girls who look like her to see the movie.

  2. Thanks for your great review, Debbie! I went right over and ordered this doll (the site is stating that it is on pre-order until April 1). I don't want to snooze on this one and end up missing out. And I can't wait to see the movie.

    1. I'm glad you didn't snooze on this one, Roxanne. People are already attempting to sell it for slightly more than retail on eBay.

  3. Congratulations on getting the Mrs. Which - Oprah Barbie!

    Will you debox her? Do you know if a Meg doll will be added to this line? Thanks for sharing.

  4. I have no immediate plans to debox, D,7ana. I hope Mattel will make a Meg doll, but that's doubtful.
