Grandma creates relatable "Quarantine Barbies"
Tonya Ruiz, known as Grandma Gets Real, went viral for creating "quarantine Barbies." Her dolls reflect life during quarantine and include everything from a Zoom Ken doll to an essential store worker to a postponed wedding! Tonya grew up playing with Barbies and started her Instagram 3 years ago as a project with her grandkids. Tonya wanted to create realistic Barbies that represent relatable situations and everyday people. Although the quarantine Barbies are not for sale, Tonya has built a large social following and received positive feedback. For more on Tonya's work, visit her Instagram @GrandmaGetsReal.
