Pioneering primatologist Jane Goodall is the latest subject of the Barbie Inspiring Women Series, which celebrates “courageous women who took risks.” The doll representing the renowned chimpanzee expert is made from a minimum of 75% recycled plastic. Launched in July, the carbon–neutral doll can be purchased with a figure of David Greybeard, the first chimpanzee Goodall worked with at Gombe National Park in Tanzania in 1960. “My entire career, I’ve wanted to help inspire kids to be curious and explore the world around them,” Goodall said upon the doll’s launch. Others in the series include Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Maya Angelou, and Florence Nightingale; Goodall is the first to be made with recycled materials.
