On October 15, the official page for the Qai Qai doll announced it will be available for sale on Amazon. The pose was flooding with comments from fans who were super excited to get one. 

Williams introduced her daughter to Qai Qai in 2018 and today, it is one of the most popular toys on the internet and a celebrity in its own right. Fans love to see how it follows Olympia around.

The Amazon version does not look exactly like Olympia's, which is often animated with wide eyes and curly hair. It comes with a tutu and onesie, just like the original version.

When Williams first created Qai Qai and started telling her story on social media, she was not sure about how people would respond. Since many parents could relate to how much the doll means to Olympia, they could relate.

Qai Qai's posts are fun, but they also give meaningful messages and express opinions on social issues, including mental health, racial issues, and female empowerment. 

The doll was not meant to be a parenting hack, and Williams firmly believes that people should not have any parenting secrets. According to her, there is no right way to be a mom and no one has it all figured out.
