Fans Launch Petition for Mattel to Create An Official Selena Barbie

Selena Barbie Change.Org Petition

Who else remembers the original limited edition Selena doll that was released back in 1996? It was every fans' dream.

We were lucky enough to have our own. The mini version of Selena Quintanilla came dressed in the Queen of Tejano's iconic purple jumpsuit, which she wore during her final concert at the Houston Astrodome. The doll also brought along a mic in her hand, ready to perform all of her hits! Ah, she was amazing.

Now, a new generation (and old, of course) of Selena fans could have the opportunity to see another muñeca made in the late singer's likeness. According to Remezcla, a fan by the name of Remy Ocampo has launched a Change.org petition, asking Mattel to create an original Selena Barbie doll. As you know, Quintanilla's fans are hardcore! When they kick off a movement for something they want, it usually happens (Hello, Selena MAC collection!). "There has yet to be any curvy Hispanic barbie dolls in any Barbie line and we think Selena is a perfect candidate for that kind of representation," Ocampo wrote.

"Selena was truly a person to be admired and I think young girls and boys would appreciate having a Selena doll in their collection."

Ocampo notes that now is the perfect time to create a Selena doll, since Mattel recently introduced the world to Barbie dolls with a diverse range of bodies and skin tones. "They need to capture Selena's facial features, physical attributes (the original booty) and her flamboyant sense of style. This is a long time coming for Selena fans!"

So far, the petition has received over 1,900 supporters — and you've also got one in us.
