Barbie Debuts Gloria Estefan Collectors Doll for Singer's 65th Birthday

·1 min read

The design is so spot-on that it's practically her mini.

Gloria Estefan just got the best birthday present ever. 

Earlier today, it was announced that the seven-time Grammy winner would receive her very own Barbie doll. The custom Mattel creation was modeled after Estefan's likeness, and the doll's accessories are said to be inspired by the singer's Cuban-American heritage. 

While the legendary artist has accumulated numerous accolades throughout her career, her most recent honors are, by far, the most unique. 

The official Barbie account announced its Gloria Estefan Barbie Signature Collectors Doll on Twitter and shared a handful of sensational first looks at the collectible. 

"Today, #Barbie honors the legendary @GloriaEstefan on her birthday, for her groundbreaking contributions to music. Inspired by her Cuban heritage, she popularized Latin rhythms with pop beats, becoming one of the most successful crossover artists," the brand wrote. 

The official statement continued: "The @GloriaEstefan #Barbie doll wears a look inspired by the artist's iconic style in the 'Get On Your Feet'" music video, with dramatic lace sleeves and thigh-high leopard print boots, all the way from 1989."

Fans eagerly approved of not only the news but Mattel's near-identical design and shared their elation online. 

"I am so excited about this!," one replied–but not before she tagged some friends.

"She is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!❤️ Just like the real life @GloriaEstefan!😍," another fan gushed. 

"This is spot on!" said another. 

The Gloria Estefan Barbie Signature Collectors Doll is currently available to pre-order ($55) online via Mattel Creations and Target.
