What to get the couple that has everything? How about Barbie dolls in their likenesses, available for purchase by the general public? Yes, people, the Faith Hill and Tim McGraw Barbie set is happening!
You know how they sometimes say if you just keep repeating something, it becomes true? Well, it worked for Nicki Minaj. The self-proclaimed "Harajuku Barbie" is now literally a Barbie. Barbie manufacturer Mattel has created one single Nicki Minaj Barbie to be auctioned off for charity. The doll comes equipped with all the Nicki necessities: a pink wig, a Barbie necklace (how meta) and that "Super Bass" smile. But get your checkbooks ready, Barbz -- bids start at $1,000.
Barbie is in the Pink. Pantone Pink 219C, to be exact. Mattel and Pantone have just released the new doll, designed by Linda Kyaw, for pre-order. The destined-to-be-a-designer's-favorite doll, with a retail price of $52.99, will ship in January 2012.
PINK IN PANTONE® BARBIE® Doll: Barbie is all about pink, particularly PMS 219, her signature color -which, believe it or not, is actually owned by Mattel .
Though Universal Pictures is developing a theatrical feature starring Barbie, Mattel will keep the front and center on the small screen as it celebrates the 10th anni of its direct-to-DVD animated film series, whose 22nd installment, "Barbie: A Perfect Christmas," is in stores now.

It looks like #TeamNatural just got a new member for the holidays. An African-American women’s group in Columbus, GA is getting into the holiday spirit and handing out Barbie dolls to young girls at the Booker T. Washington apartments in their area, but these won’t be your average Barbie dolls. As a way to help the young girls embrace their natural beauty, the group plans to give Barbie a natural makeover before handing them out.
Sorry, Ken, but Barbie's got a brand new interest for the holidays: Stardoll.
Mattel, the world's biggest toymaker, today will announce plans to wed the worlds of online and offline doll play by rolling out an extensive line of "Stardoll by Barbie" fashion dolls. The dolls are mini-fashionistas right down to their eyelashes, which aren't painted on but are rooted and protrude like those on more expensive dolls.
She may not look like the traditional Malibu Barbie, but pop tart Katy Perry reverted to her ‘California Gurls’ look for her toy transformation. Like her pal Nicki Minaj, Perry is a model for a one-of-a-kind Mattel doll on sale for charity.
The Perry doll features the ‘One That Got Away’ songstress donning a blue ‘do and a cupcake dress (and each of the cupcakes is handpainted!), evoking images from her ‘California Dreams’ tour. The doll stands on a small platform made to look like a waffle cone, and she’s surrounded by her the lollipops, ice cream and gummi bears that have become her signature. Perry’s doll also has Swarovski-crystal studded fishnet stockings. That’s one way to class them up!
For the little (and not so little) girls in your life, Mattel just released a brand new Grace Kelly Barbie! Wearing one of the iconic actress’s most famous outfits, The Barbie Collector Rear Window doll dons a perfectly scaled-down version of the classic chiffon black and white dress that Kelly sported as Lisa Fremont in the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock film.
Stardoll, the online game and community that celebrates fashion, shopping, and (of course) dolls, is venturing out into the real world with the new Stardoll line from Barbie.
The dolls are all inspired by the avatars on the website, with fashions straight from the in-game shops. Eight Stardoll dolls are available in stores now, including the Gothic chic Fallen Angel and the fashion-conscious Bonjour Bizou. In addition, five more dolls are slated to hit stores in 2012.
Even the classics need to keep up with the times. Barbie does her own bit of dabbling in the Internet age with the Barbie Designable Hair Extension Pack With Doll, letting kids become professional hair designers. Kids can log on and choose between pre-made designs, or create their own, then print the results on the hair extensions provided and clip them on to Barbie for a fresh, fashionable new look. The pack comes with six barrettes, which are small enough for Barbie and big enough for your little girl to wear, too. Also included are 16 blank hair extensions ready for printing. It’s good to see that Barbie is still keeping up with all the latest trends in fashion and tech!
Barbie has created an extensive resume over her 50 years. From teacher, to veterinarian, and everything in between, she’s truly done it all. In 2012, Barbie will leave it all on the runway as she takes on her latest role as a fashion designer. It makes perfect sense as the sartorially savvy doll has influenced the fashion world for decades, but it isn’t the first time she started her own portfolio. The creative doll tested her design skills in1960.
