Feb. 20 (UPI) — Toymaker Mattel introduced three new dolls in its Inspiring Women line of Barbie dolls on Thursday, featuring likenesses of accomplished women throughout history.

The new set features dolls based on Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Jean King and Florence Nightingale.

Each of the dolls costs $29.99 and can be purchased on Barbie’s website or at other retailers such as Amazon, Target and Walmart.
