*Kim Kardashian voice* I’m a Barbie girl in the Barbie worldddd!! According to a number of sources including US Weekly, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are being made into Barbies by the doll giant Mattel.
Kim, appears to already have struck up a friendship with the world’s most famous doll. “Merry Christmas Barbs!” she tweeted on Christmas. “I’m sure we’ll be seeing lots of each other [in 2012]. Shopping soon!”
It comes as little surprise that the Kardashian family would be keen to be involved in expanding their brand to dolls, given their business savvy which includes television series, Shoedazzle, perfume, jewellery, clothing, handbags, nailpolish, weight loss products, retail stories and books.
In terms of the branding, it is not much of a stretch given their common use of the word ‘doll’ and ‘DASH’ dolls.
The dolls are rumoured to be reflective of each of the sister’s body proportions along with their individual fashion style.
I am very interested in buying these dolls. Will you be buying them?
