Forget Barbie, There’s A New (More Inspirational) Role Model In The Toy Box.

Sometimes it just takes one person to make a change for others to follow. Wendy Tsao was inspired by Sonia Singh’s Tree Change Dolls that she decided to make her own version of the realistic looking dollies. Tao strips the overly sexualized Bratz dolls off their makeup, hair and clothes, and changes them into inspiring women.

Whether it’s Canada's first female astronaut Roberta Bondar or British primatologist Jane Goodall: the Mighty Dolls are a homage of strong and inspiring women little girls and boys everywhere will want to play with.

Tsao explained, “These women inspired me. I really admire the women that I featured in my mighty dolls, for what they did or achieved and continue to do. And they should be role models instead of or, at least, alongside the products of Disney and Hollywood."

For parents wanting to get a doll or two for their kids, Tsao will be auctioning them on eBay within the next few weeks.
