The sisters Kardashian are already made primarily out of molded polymers, so it comes as no surprise that Mattel would want to duplicate and miniaturize the mold that made them to create easily reproducible toys for kids to play with. Please, won’t someone think of the children?
According to US Weekly, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe‘s terrifying, dead-eyed stares will be immortalized in a limited edition doll line named after (and most likely, intended to market) their Dash clothing line. “The dolls will reflect the girls’ measurements and may even comes in Kardashian-designed outfits,” a source told the gossip mag. Oh boy!
This is not too surprising, considering Kim tweeted a fair amount at Barbie’s twitter account over the holidays (yes, inanimate objects have Twitter accounts now), things like “Merry Christmas Barbs @BarbieStyle! Long time no see! What did Ken get you for Christmas? Miss you doll!” and “I’m sure we will be seeing lots of each other!Shopping soon!Xo.” While it was tempting to hope that Kim had regressed Twin Peaks style into a quivering, childlike creature who thinks her dolls are alive, she was probably just buttering up the company and/or hinting at what was to come.
Will the Kardashian dolls get along with Barbie? Who knows? They’d best steel themselves to be massively shown up by her, though, as Barbie has like 500 real jobs and they have none.
