The Muslim Barbie Doll

Razanne has the body of a preteen. The doll comes in three types: fair-skinned blonde, olive-skinned with black hair, or black skin and black hair.

Her aspirations are those of a modern Muslim woman. On the drawing board for future dolls are Dr. Razanne and possibly even Astronaut Razanne. There's also Muslim Girl Scout Razanne, complete with a cassette recording of the Muslim Scout's oath.

The idea light bulbs are furiously flashing in my head. I need investors to help me start a line of Buddha Barbies, Catholic Catherines, Fundamentalist Francines or Evangelical Emmas, Mormon Melissas...
