"Black Panther" has been one of Marvel's most successful films to date, and let's face it — that has A LOT to do with the huge amount of melanin people were able to love up on in the theaters.
One of the most beloved "Black Panther" characters is Princess Shuri, played by Letitia Wright. People fell in love with her hilarious pranks, gorgeous braids, and lovely representation for Black girls in STEM.
Marvel missed the Wakandan boat on that one... but a creative mom didn't!
Since Marvel didn't make a "Black Panther" Barbie, this crafty mama DIY'd a Princess Shuri Barbie for her daughter.
My Froggy Stuff started with the official Princess Tiana doll ($10, Shop Disney).
But My Froggy Stuff felt like Princess Shuri deserved more of the Wakanda treatment — so she built her an ENTIRE lab, complete with King T'Challa as the Black Panther!
This is so adorably extra and beautiful. It totally makes me want to go Wakanda to hang out with Princess Shuri IRL.
Marvel kind of should have done this so all the little girls obsessed with brains and melanin-filled beauty of Princess Shuri could add another brown doll to their collection — but thankfully, this mother used her creativity to fill the void for her own daughter.
Crafty moms and Black Disney princesses for the win!
(But yeah, Marvel. What's good?)
