Burqa Barbie!

Muslim girls now have an alternative to the conventional Western Barbie with a new doll called Razanne, who comes dressed in the height of Muslim fashion, a long dress and hijab. Imagine the possible accessories! And here are some future ones:

Her aspirations are those of a modern Muslim woman. On the drawing board for future dolls are Dr. Razanne and possibly even Astronaut Razanne. There's also Muslim Girl Scout Razanne, complete with a cassette recording of the Muslim Scout's oath.

I have to confess I got a laugh out of this at first, but it's a great idea, and I'm betting it will be very successful.
