Not everyone has a one-of-a-kind Barbie Doll made for them.

Shawn King was presented with a lookalike Barbie a couple years ago when she and husband Larry were honored for their work at UCLA Children’s Hospital and for the efforts of the Larry King Cardiac Foundation.

Mattel honored the couple with a Shawn King lookalike Barbie.

“We are incredibly honored that Larry, Shawn and their children will be helping us celebrate our 10th annual Mattel Party on the Pier,” said Dr. Edward R.B. McCabe, physician-in-chief at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA. “It will truly make a special milestone occasion even more memorable.”
