The Kardashian sisters' branding machine knows no bounds, apparently. Despite the adult theme of their reality television program, the Mattel toy company is allegedly planning a new line of Kardashian Barbie Dolls to add to their line of collectible toys. Hide your Ken dolls, ladies! The rumors are the Kardashian sisters Barbie dolls are going to have the exact same measurements as the real life ladies.
Yep... that means the Kim Kardashian doll will be contorted to having jaw dropping and epic eye-popping measurements that make Barbie's "10-year-old boy butt" look rather scrawny and ridiculous, little Kourtney Kardashian will be built roughly like Skipper, and Khloe Kardashian (bless her heart) is likely to look like a fat version of Midge.
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are just a few of the star celebs who will be immortalized in plastic. Us Weekly reports that rather than running the show, they will be cast as celebrity friends of Barbie.
"A Mattel rep tells TheWrap the company does not comment on product rumors, but a series of tweets between Kim Kardashian and the official Twitter account of Barbie suggests Kardashian dolls will be a real thing this year..." says The Wrap, an online entertainment news magazine.
Back on Christmas day 2011, @KimKardashian tweeted, "Merry Christmas Barbs @BarbieStyle! Long time no see! What did Ken get you for Christmas? Miss you doll!", followed by a tweet dialog between the reality star and Barbie.
The Kardashian sisters really do look like a darker version of Barbie, Skipper, and Midge. Fortunately, there is no word about whether or not aside from sharing the bust, waist, and hip measurements of the girls if the dolls will be anatomically correct.
The celebrity friends dolls are expected to spend their time railing on Ken and shopping.
