MATTEL PRESENTS ... THE BIRDS BARBIE
Posted: Tue, Dec 16 2008 - 10:42 AM
Yes, Mattel Inc. has really gone and created a toy guaranteed to give your child nightmares ... that is, if they have any clue what it's about, which they probably won't. Then again, educating children on the genius of Alfred Hitchcock can't start soon enough as far as I'm concerned.
According to the official site:
"In 1963, Alfred Hitchcock, the Master of Suspense, gave us a tale of terror not soon forgotten in his film “The Birds.” Dressed in a re-creation of the stylish green skirt-suit worn by the film's ill-fated heroine in an iconic scene, Alfred Hitchcock's “The Birds” Barbie® Doll celebrates the 45th anniversary of the acclaimed film. From the doll's classic ensemble to the perfectly painted expression to the accompanying black birds, every aspect captures the film's infamous appeal."
Wow -- this is either really cool or kinda disturbing. What's next?
Psycho Barbie -- you don't have to open it, it cuts its own way out of the box.
Marnie Barbie -- she's both hot and cold at the same time.
Vertigo Barbie -- bell tower sold separately.
Got any other ideas? Let me know.
