Seeking a Renaissance in San Francisco
Mad Men Barbies – old news, I know. But, in keeping with the Mad Men theme for the week, here are the Barbie and Ken versions of the characters! Mattel came out with the dolls back in March of this year to help promote the Mad Men brand and increase viewership of the show.
The dolls are $74.95 each and come with period specific accessories, like hats, overcoats, pearls and padded undergarments – martini glasses, ashtrays, Lucky Strikes, and Vodka Gimlets not included! As the NYT pointed out, it’s interesting to note that both Mad Men and Barbie have a “shared history,” because the Mad Men storyline starts in March 1960 and Barbie was first introduced in March 1959!
I’ll be getting the Joan doll as soon as they come back in stock! You can buy the dolls here: AMC Store. Check out the four Mad Men dolls below: Betty Draper, Don Draper, Joan Holloway, and Roger Sterling.
