‘Twilight’ Gets The Barbie Treatment


Back in June Mattel announced that they would be producing a line of Barbie dolls based on characters from Twilight and today we get to see a new promo photo for the dolls. Available on November 1, Bella Barbie Swan and Edward Ken Cullen will be flying off the store shelves, you just wait and see:

And there they are. Twilight Barbies. Twilight Barbie Bella and Twilight Barbie (Ken, really) Edward. Stephenie Meyer HERSELF art directed the design of the Twilight Barbies, which hit stores November 1, in time for the release of New Moon. They’re $24.95 each. And I don’t need to tell you this, but Bella and Edward Barbie were created in the likeness of the “Forever 17″ scene of Twilight, and actual costumes from the movie set were used to inspire the dolls’ costumes. If Mattel creates another version of Twilight Edward, I truly hope he sparkles when you take him out into the sun. Surely we have that kind of technology.

Look, you don’t need special technology to get Edward-Ken to dazzle in the daylight … all you need is a tube of Elmer’s All Purpose glue and some glitter and VOILA! vampire sparkle! Of the dolls that have been created to cash in on the rabid demand for Twilight merchandise, I think these Barbie dolls are the best. It’s unclear if Mattel plans to manufacture Barbie dolls based on any of the other characters but one hopes they’d at least make a Jacob Black doll, right? Well … while we wait for that to happen we can place our pre-orders for the Bella Swan Barbie doll HERE and the Edward Cullen Ken doll HERE.

    I think you’re onto something Trent….although I believe Elmers sells a “clear” glue that has glitter in it already! I can just see some kid giving the elmers treatment to their tween sisters doll…that’d go over well haha.

    I never knew you could make the text run off the comments page whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    I was saying I wanted Twilight to go away, too, until I read the 2nd book. And watched the movie last night. I’m embarrassed to say, but I’ve fallen for it.

  • Dayna

    Sorry I didn’t know that it run off the page like that. lol

    I just wish Buffy would stake this series.

    but i guess it’s a nice collection to any twilight fan

    The Bella Barbie would be more realistic if it wasn’t smiling. You know, if it had that same teenage angst downturn that Kristin Stewart has.
    For Edward’s “sparkle” just use that spray can glue with glitter.

  • Shame about the outfits, not much romance in jeans and a sensible jacket.

  • Cris

    BUFFY!!!! BUFFY, BUFFY BUFFY, BUFFY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You want some teenage angst, dry wit, and a love that dare not say it’s name? Watch Buffy. Awesome. Just Awesome.
