Barbie for big girls.

The Royal Couple

Okay…raise your hand if you got up super early in the morning to watch the royal wedding last year.  I know I did…or rather I set the television to record it.  I think it is fair to say most everyone loves a good wedding.  When you add in “Royal”, it adds a whole other dimension to the mix.  There was the wild speculation about the gown.  There were the royals.  And…there were the hats.  It was only a matter of time before they were made into the perfect Barbie and Ken right?  I had no idea this was coming but should have given the popularity of the royal wedding.   It is my understanding that this is a new face mold for Ken and It looks like a good resemblance to the real Prince William.  The Duchess Kate doll is lovely but looks to be more of a “ Barbie as…” representation.  The set  is said to retail for $100 and is set to be released around their one year anniversary in April.  Awwwww!  How romantic.

    • I know! I have to admit my first thought was…wouldn’t that gown and jewels look fabulous on Poppy.

    I wanted doll made and even thought the molded hair is not my favorite I love the idea of them. I am sure I can see my self buying them and redressing them. Yes I think that it would look great on poppy, I was also thinking the dress would good on one of the girls in the line! 🙂 Thanks for sharing that with us! 🙂

    • The redressing possibilities of this gown are endless in my opinion. There will definitely be a few girls in my collection that will be wearing that gown for photos. I think they did a good job on Prince William…yes they added some hair to him 😉
