Default Royal Wedding Dolls: Mattel's Prince William And Kate Middleton Barbie Dolls Set For Release

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...style&ir=Style


Quote:
For those who still can't get enough of last year's royal wedding, Mattel is releasing a Barbie and Ken version of Prince William and Kate -- just in time for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's one-year wedding anniversary.

The company's royal dolls feature the plastic pair in their wedding-day regalia, with Barbie Kate in a floor-length, ivory taffeta replica of her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown, complete with lace and faux pearl buttons. The Duchess of Cambridge doll also wears a veil, sparkling tiara, diamond earrings and even a mini-version of her sapphire engagement ring.
Is it me, but the groom looks a bit like Prince William, but the Bride is Barbie, Not Princess Katherine.

They cost $100.00

I wonder why a company as big as Mattel can't hire sculptors who can make the dolls' heads look like the subjects.

Sorta thought this might have been released last year. Doesn't appear to make marketing sense to me.

You under estimate the fanatic devotion of hard core Barbie fans. A few years back they released Barbie dols based on well known DC comics characters, some of these now trade hands 2 or 3 years later for ridiculously large sums of money. I predict something similar will happen with these dolls.

But still, they would have got loads of casual sales if the release was timed with the wedding itself.
