The Veiled Barbie

January 13th, 2006 | researchmaterial

Fulla, dressed in a traditional Islamic headscarf and overdress, comes with her own pink felt prayer rug.

Creators NewBoy Design Studio launched the doll in 2003 and sales have proved strong in the Middle East.

Fulla is still single and there are no plans for an Islamic equivalent to Ken, Barbie’s former boyfriend. However, a Doctor Fulla and Fulla as a teacher are planned – both respected careers for women.

  1. The irony of this is just beautiful.

  2. Does she come with a belt stringed with plastique or c4?

  3. Hah, I guess I’m ahead of the curve, somehow. I have one of these, sent to me by a friend stationed in Saudi Arabia. The headscarf is a pain in the ass to get on straight.
