Throughout her career, Alex has commanded the sport with her graceful yet confident athleticism. From winning FIFA Women’s World Cup championships, to being named ESPY female athlete of the year, bringing home the gold with her team, and appearing on the cover of Time Magazine, Alex’s ability to excite her fans stretches far beyond the field.
Alex is honored as a Barbie® “Shero”. a woman who has broken boundaries to inspire the generation of girls. Girls need more role models like Alex Morgan, because imagining they can be anything is just the beginning. Actually seeing that can make all the difference.

The Alex Morgan comes wearing her USA red, white, and blue soccer uniform Morgan 13 numbered jersey with matching shorts. Above the knee cotton soccer socks with white plastic molded shin guards and red cleat soccer shoes. The long brown rooted hair is tied back in a pony tail and a pick elastic head band is around the hair line. The face is painted with gray blue eyes brown eye brows and pink lips around a toothy smile. All the clothing is removable. The jersey has Velco openings at the back shoulders and the short have an elastic waist.
The doll is articulated in almost every way. The head tilts and twists. The shoulders turn 360 and there is another joint above the biceps that twists the lower arm. The elbows bend 90 degrees and the wrists twist all the way around and bend 180 degrees. The upper torso bends forward and backwards under the breasts and slightly twists. The waist is solid. The hips rotate and have an extra joint at the upper thigh that can twist the lower leg all the way around. The knees bend almost a complete 180 degrees which enables many interesting soccer poses. The ankles twist all the way around and bend a little over 90 degrees enable the foot to go flat or pointed.
All in all this Alex Morgan Barbie gets high marks in play-ability.
