Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas now has her own Barbie doll! Douglas’ doll is following in the footsteps of Mattel’s Ava DuVernay doll, which was also released as part of the company’s Shero collection.

On sale today for $24.99, the Gabby Douglas Barbie comes complete with a stars-and-stripes leotard, and pink and black Nike warmups.

“It’s a huge honor,” Douglas tells PEOPLE. “I always dreamed of having my own doll, and I played with Barbie when I was little with my sisters.”


“I really hope people what people take away from the Gabby Barbie doll is to be inspired, to be encouraged to be anything that you want to be. If you have a passion or a goal, set your heart to do whatever you want to do.”

Douglas, 21, also got into the makeup business and recently debuted line of liquid lipsticks from Beauty Bakerie.

Douglas is currently on a break from training and hasn’t decided if she’ll return to gymnastics.

“Coming off of the Olympics was so stressful mentally and physically, so my body and my mind are thanking me for the break,” she say“We’ll see,” she says.

“For me, since I’ve been doing gymnastics since I was six years old, I’m 21 now. It’s just a huge decision. I don’t want to make any rash decisions. For me, I’m just taking it day-by-day, and I’ll just take it from there.”
