I've never been a gymnast, but I'm fascinated by the sport. I've always gotten a kick out of watching pint-sized ladies and gentlemen whip their bodies into impossible positions and make it look so effortless. Of course it's NOT effortless, but it looks it! Anywho, few modern-day gymnasts have impressed me more than Gabby Douglas, who is both talented and beautiful, in addition to being a woman of God (always important in my book). There had been some chatter about a doll done in Miss Gabby's likeness, and now that appears to be more than chatter! The doll's release date is today!

Special thanks to Debbie Behar Garrett for this delightful news. If you're looking for a good blog on black dolls, Miss Debbie is the one for you. If you look closely at the side panel of her blog you'll find a petition for a black Silkstone male, which I think is a good idea. Male dolls don't get fair treatment from Mattel as it is, and a male Silkie of color would be fabulous.
