Laverne Cox has become the first transgender person to have a Barbie doll modelled after them, something she said is “a dream” come true.

It will be part of toy brand Mattel’s Tribute Collection, which is also celebrating the likes of Vera Wang and Maya Angelou, among others.

The Orange Is the New Black star is being recognised for the impact she has had as an activist and her work on LGBTQ+ rights. “It’s been a dream for years to work with Barbie to create my own doll,” Laverne said of the honour. “I can’t wait for fans to find my doll on shelves and have the opportunity to add a Barbie doll modelled after a transgender person to their collection.
