Barbie + Mad Men

Friday, March 12, 2010

I know it's probably not the ideal nor appropriate idol for the average little girl & it will probably cause a lot of controversy over the inspiration, but I just love how Barbie will be creating dolls inspired by Mad Men - Barbies for the older girl! (Or we can just not tell the little girls what the stories behind the Mad Men characters are and let them just love the look of them)

Mad Men is one of my favorite shows and I'm in love with that time period and its fashion so I'm excited what Mattel brings out. The dolls will debut in July along with Mad Men's fourth season.

What do you think of this idea?

I'm going to start Netflix-ing the Mad Men first season. I hear so many good things about it! But I digress, I like this Barbie/ Mad Men collaboration! Seems fitting.

Barbie has never created good role-models for little girls anyways :p I like how they look though, very chic and retro!

Slamdunk said...

I had not heard of this with Barbie until I read your post. I am thinking this combo will be a huge sales hit with that age group too old for the original set.

I love it. I don't care if people think barbie is unrealistic. F-ck. Don't tell me a pink pony with purple tails down to the ground is realistic, after all they're all just toys!
