Looks like the characters of “Mad Men” have just been made
After three seasons, the characters of the Mad Men television series all about advertising in the 1960’s are going to become Barbie dolls. The Barbie and Ken versions will include Don Draper, the show’s leading man; his wife, Betty; his colleague at the Sterling Cooper agency, Roger Sterling; and Joan Holloway, the agency’s office manager who was Roger’s mistress. A part of a premium-price collectors’ series for adults that Mattel calls the Barbie Fashion Model Collection, the dolls will be among other TV series such as “I Love Lucy” and “The X-Files, where the characters have been immortalized as Barbie and Ken. 7,000 to 10,000 copies of each doll will be sold in specialty stores and on two Web sites including amctv.com and barbiecollector.com. The suggested retail price is $74.95 for each doll.
