|My doll's shipping box appeared tampered with.|
The shipping tape on both the top and bottom of my doll's shipping box had been slit as though someone had attempted to open it. Before opening the box myself, I heard something rattling around inside. After opening, I discovered what has become the norm for Amazon: no protective packing materials were added to the box; the boxed doll was inside the otherwise empty shipping box! Someone really needs to school those people in proper packing procedures.
The rattling I heard was the doll's eyeglasses. They had fallen to the bottom of the box. Initially, I had not planned to open the doll's box, but I had to get the glasses. I made a slit in the tape that held the plastic tab in place on the top of the box, opened the plastic flap, turned the box upside down, and the glasses slid into my hand.
|Katherine Johnson Barbie was photographed before retrieving her eyeglasses. The backdrop of the box is a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) lab setting in which several white males are seated at desks.|

"I asked questions; I wanted to know why."
A description of the Inspiring Women series and a brief bio of Ms. Johnson follows the above quote and is shown below in this enlarged image of that portion of the back of the box.
