Mad Men Barbie Dolls. Seriously.



I get the appeal (and commercial importance) of merchandising, I really do. There are so many items that would have made some sense: Pete Campbell's home decor (I'm so buying those giraffe prints), A menswear line inspired by Don's ties and Roger's suits (better than Regis Philbin and The Donald, right?), Betty's red lipstick and a special edition Joan's Shalimar smelling like it did in 1960 (a girl can dream). Instead what we get is Barbie and Ken dolls.

Why?

  2. Even stupider, Joan looks skinny.

  3. I'm just mad that the dolls don't come with martini glasses, flasks or a typewriter with tiny keys accommodating for women's hands.

  4. Yup, Joan needs to be way more curvaceous. And why does Roger Sterling look like Steve Martin?

  5. Brooks Brothers did a Mad Men suit (with Janie Bryant, I think) -- great tie-in, for sure. I'd love to see a women's wear line.
