Now little Jada will still have her mother to play with, even when Kim Clijsters is off competing in Grand Slam tournaments.

Clijsters was immortalised as a Barbie doll and her daughter Jada is also now available in a mini-version of the doll phenomenon that has spanned generations.

Clijsters said in a statement: “When I was a young girl I played with my Barbie dolls ... My family means everything to me, so I was really excited when I found out that Jada would also receive her very own ‘Jada Barbie’ doll.”

Jada, almost 2, caught the world’s attention at the U.S. Open last September when celebrating her mother’s victory at Flushing Meadows. There was no version available of Clijsters’ husband, Brian Lynch, as Ken.
