Naomi Osaka tweeted a photo of her new Barbie doll, part of Mattel’s Barbie Role Models line, on Monday.

By Tuesday morning, it was sold out on the Mattel website.

“I hope every child is reminded that they can be and do anything,” Osaka, a four-time Grand Slam winner and the world No. 2, said when she announced her collaboration with the toy company.

The doll is wearing a replica of the Nike tennis dress she wore during the 2020 Australian Open. It also has a white Nike visor and light blue shoes and is holding a replica Yonex racket.

It retails on the Mattel website for $29.99 — if available.

“Due to high demand, we are currently sold out of this doll,” the site read Tuesday. “Click below, and we will notify you if she becomes available for purchase.”

This was the second Osaka doll, with the first one produced in 2019.

Osaka, 23, pulled out of the French Open over mental health issues and didn’t play in Wimbledon. She is expected to compete for Japan in the upcoming Olympics in Tokyo.
