HUDSONVILLE, Mich. -- Remember the young West Michigan girl who drove a Barbie car full of gifts to her neighbors?

Becca VanZyll packed her pink car full of clothes and toys in September and delivered them to her neighbors, the Vu-Walkers, after they lost everything in a fire.

Becca's story has now been shared across the country, even grabbing the attention of toy company Mattel.

“They had heard about what she did and they were proud of her for giving back," says Becca's mom Jackie VanZyll.

Mattel mailed Becca and the Vu-Walker girls new Barbies and toys, even a new Barbie car.

“Oh she thought it was Christmas. She was very excited.”

The Vu-Walkers are still working on rebuilding their Hudsonville home. If you would like to help, visit their GoFundMe page.
