Mad Men immortalised as Barbie Dolls

| 11 March , 2010 | 1 Reply

Yes you read that correctly, the Mad Men characters are being made into Barbie Dolls. The New York Times reports the dolls will be part of a premium-price collectors\’ series for adults that Mattel calls the Barbie Fashion Model Collection.

Don Draper, his wife Betty, his colleague Roger Sterling and Joan Holloway are the stars being immortalised, will this be the first time Barbie has a mistress doll?  But what happened to Joan’s boobs and lush curves?  I also think the personification of Betty Draper as Barbie Doll is interesting considering she is represented as “the wife who lives in her dream house whose soul is eaten away“.

7,000 to 10,000 copies of each doll will be made and priced at RRP US$74.95 and sold in specialty stores and on two websites, amctv.com and barbiecollector.com.

What do you think?  Who’s your favourite Mad Men Character and do you think they should bring out more of them? And if you haven’t already, you can create your own Mad Men avatar!
