'Mad Men' to Become Ken and Barbie Dolls

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 10th 2010 11:45AM
Mad Men BarbieIf you can't wait for season four of 'Mad Men' when it debuts later this year, Mattel can help you play 'Mad Men' and create your own stories. According to the New York Times, the toy company is creating versions of Barbie and Ken based on four 'Mad Men' characters - Don Draper, his wife Betty, Roger Sterling and Joan Harris.

If you want to play out Draper's past, you can get a full-sized G.I. Joes and swap clothes. Or you can get a bunch of regular Barbies and have an office party and make them dance to the 'Mad Men' soundtrack.

TV franchises offer up last minute Christmas gift ideas

Lucy audtions for Ricky's show as a Barbie doll for CBS Consumer Products.NORAD is already tracking Santa Claus and his airborne reindeer team as it heads south from the North Pole and ignores boring Canada to give delightful Christmas presents to all the good American boys and girls. Fortunately, the U.S. Air Force apologized for that anti-aircraft missile that almost nicked Dasher. They sent a fruit basket and everything.

The point is that you don't have much time to snag holiday toys for your TV fan friends and those few kids you actually like. Fortunately, there still some popular toys out there that can serve multiple gift giving purposes.

The I Love Lucy Barbie from Mattel (right) sells for $45, so it might be more appropriate for an adult toy collector (an adult who collects TV-related toys, I mean). But, a Barbie is a Barbie, and few girls would turn one down -- even if it features Lucy Ricardo auditioning for a part in Ricky's show at the Copa.

Mad Men: Guy Walks Into An Advertising Agency

(S03E06)
What do disappointment, opportunities and snakes have in common? They're all themes in this episode of Mad Men. The British, in the form of Powell, Ford and Mackendrick came to Sterling Cooper for a visit, but what that visit meant was anybody's guess. The visit wrecking holiday plans for the staff -- no Independence Day for you, colonists -- was obvious irony and true nonetheless. And the Guy walking into the ad agency, well, it would be a hollow joke after this tragedy. More after the jump.

The Trek Barbie dolls are coming! The Trek Barbie dolls are coming!

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 22nd 2009 3:04PM

Barbie goes Federation on your ass with these new dolls modeled from the stars of the new Star Trek movieJust in time to tax refund season -- because you can't use the money for things like gas, food and basic survival -- comes the newest Barbie releases from toy giant Mattel. They're the Star Trek Barbie dolls -- three dolls that represent Kirk, Spock and Uhura. Okay, that's neat. But, there's just one issue...

See, these dolls are not designed after the original Star Trek cast from the 1960s. These dolls are modeled after the stars that will play those iconic characters in the new and highly anticipated Star Trek prequel coming out in May. Each doll comes dressed in the Starfleet outfits that are familiar to fans of the original series and carries a phaser (Type II model) and a communicator.

The cost for the dolls...forty-four friggin bucks a piece! Don't worry, because you have until the end of April to save up before they are released to Wal-mart, walmart.com, and Barbiecollector.com. Get them while they last before someone sells them on eBay for triple the price.

He also helped develop an action figure based on the Six Million Dollar Man and also "develop strategy" for the popular Chatty Cathy doll while working for Mattel.

Giving Glam: Project Runway Barbie

by Lacy Hall, posted Dec 20th 2005 8:36AM

barbiedollOn last week's episode of Project Runway, Nick Verreos won the Barbie competition, which meant that his winning design would be transformed into a limited edition My Scene Barbie (cough, cough...rip-off Bratz doll). Well, Heidi hussled her little German ass off, and got the doll ready for Festivus. Okay, not really. Pre-ordering for the doll is available on the Project Runway website for $24.95, but it won't be ready to ship-out until January 20th. So it's one of those gifts you'll have to wrap-up a picture of and promise that it's "on its way."

**Note to my Mom- Under no circumstances, do I want this for Christmas, my birthday, or any other major gift-giving holiday.
