Irish-based doll company, Lottie Dolls, has just created the Kid Activist doll modeled after Little Miss Flint, Mari Copney! The famed 11-year-old has become the voice of Flint, MI as a result of her dedication and activism to help the residents of her community that have been without clean water since April 2014.

According to Earther.com, Mari Copney, first came on to the radar of the founder of Lottie Dolls, Ian Harkin, when she made Teen Vogue’s 21 Under 21 list in 2017. The company and Copney worked hand-in-hand to create a doll that dons her signature tiara and “Kids Lives Matter” sign. Copney’s doll is added to a collection of other dolls inspired by kids who are “changing lives for other kids because they are proactively sort of giving back to their communities.”
The Kid Activist doll is now available for pre-order for $24.94.
