The Reese Witherspoon celebrity doll portrays her as Mrs. Whatsit in the Disney movie “A Wrinkle in Time”. The Signature Barbie doll was made by Mattel in 2017 and released by Disney on March 19, 2018 for the retail price of $49.99. It was designed by Carlyle Nuera.
The doll comes dressed in a pastel bodice, blue green skirted gown and is decorated with blue lipstick and finger nail polish. The gown is removable with velcro enclosures. The doll has no jewelry, shoes, or underclothes–just the gown. The bright red hair is styled to match the movie character Mrs. Whatsit.
From the box:
In Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, Meg Murry embarks on an epic adventure across the universe to find her missing father. Traveling to worlds unknown as she fights against an evil force that threatens to cover the world in darkness, Meg has three celestial beings as her guides. Known as Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Whatsit, these three women are powerful warriors made of stardust, each with a special role in Meg’s journey. Mrs. Whatsit is the most youthful and free-spirited, transforming into a magnificent flying creature.
It is articulated at the shoulders, hips, elbows, wrists, neck and knees. The head tilts up and down. The torso is rigid.
The doll comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a clear doll stand with a black base.
This is the second Reese Witherspoon celebrity doll in the museums collection. Witherspoon is also depicted as Elle Woods in the 2003 sequel Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.
