Queen Elizabeth II Barbie Doll

[ Edited ]

Barbie doll of the Queen

 

The Queen has been transformed into a Barbie doll for her Platinum Jubilee by toymaker Mattel.

 

The doll, designed to capture the Queen's likeness, is being released on the real-life monarch's 96th birthday on Thursday.

 

It is part of the Barbie tribute collection, which the company says pays tribute to "visionary individuals with an outstanding impact and legacy".

 

It was launched last year with a doll of American actress Lucille Ball.

 

Queen Elizabeth II's barbie doll is being released to commemorate her 70 years on the throne.

 

Dressed in an ivory gown with blue ribbon, the doll features details drawn from the monarch's past. It wears a recreation of the tiara worn by the Queen on her wedding day, and pink and blue ribbons modelled after ones given to her by her father George VI and grandfather George V, the company says.

Shucks, I was hoping she'd be old, wrinkly, with a matronly figure.  The only concession is her white hair.  Otherwise no resemblence. Elizabeth doesnt have a swan neck or hourglass figure.  It's about time for a grandmotherly Barbie.

Kachina624, they just couldn't "go there," I guess.  No "Nana Barbie" allowed.  Nana has glam.

 

ETA:  This doll looks a bit like Helen Mirren, I think.

It's ridiculous. That is not the body of a 96 year old woman. It's a joke and IMO it's horrible.

 

They just took a Barbie body and slapped some "queen" stuff on it. Stupid.

@golding76  Think of this....it was us "Nanas" that made Barbie famous.  We deserve some respect and consideration.  How realistic is that doll?
