A friend of mine recently told me that the people behind the tv show Mad Men are so keen on getting everything right that they even hunt down smaller apples and oranges, as the fruit in the early 1960's weren't as big as they are today... Attention to detail? Indeed.
Anyway, Mad Men is clearly very popular, so popular that Mattel now launches the Barbie Mad Men collector's dolls.
Gracefully molded of Silkstone®, a material that resembles the look and weight of porcelain, each doll is stylized in iconic costumes from the series, and comes with accessories true to their show counterparts. Don Draper wears his classic, polished red-lined suit and comes accessorized with a hat, overcoat and brief case; Betty Draper’s classic look is captured with unparalleled detail, from her faux pearl necklace to her pumps; Joan Holloway looks chic in a purple skirt suit and perfectly styled coif with her staple accessory — a pen necklace; and Roger Sterling is looking dapper in his monogrammed shirt.
Available to consumers July 2010. Read more about the dolls at BarbieCollector.com
