If you follow tennis pro Serena Williams and Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian on Instagram.then you’ve probably met Qai Qai—their daughter Olympia‘s favorite baby doll.

Now, anyone can have their very own Qai Qai! The doll is available for purchase on Amazon, according to a report by Good Morning America.

“When I was looking for a doll for Olympia, I felt like I was picking out a doll for me too. We can all relate to the sheer joy of playing make-believe and giving our toys their own characters and voices, and it is even sweeter when you can find a doll that looks like you,” Serena Williams told GMA recently. “Our responsibility as parents is to raise our children to be loving, accepting and empathetic to everyone’s experiences. Qai Qai is the platform and brand we created to champion these messages and make people laugh while doing it.”

Qai Qai has over one million followers across social media platforms and goes on all of Olympia’s adventures, including, most recently, the U.S. Open.

“There’s something really special about the relationship between a child and their favorite toy. … We are incredibly excited to be able to bring the same delight we see in her every time she plays with Qai Qai to the homes of children everywhere,” Williams said.

Olympia is rarely seen without Qai Qai and in turn the doll has become somewhat of social media icon. The baby doll’s mission has become to tell uplifting stories, spread humor and share important social messages.

“Qai Qai is no ordinary doll, and we’ve been amazed at the way she’s been able to become a platform to educate and inspire her audience online,” Williams said.

Qai Qai is available exclusively on Amazon for $29.99.
