This Barbie is for "'The Birds." Literally.

Barbiebirds_2

Better than Nurse Barbie, better than Glamour Barbie, introducing "The Birds" Barbie Doll!

If only I were a nine-year-old girl again so I could buy this Barbie and engage in twisted, goth-play in my little faux-wood paneled bedroom. Sigh. If only Ken was physically able to rub his hands together and laugh manically. (I suppose he can still raise and lower his arms menacingly.)

Modestly priced at $44.99, this miniature Tippi Hedren Barbie is a celebration of the 45th anniversary of Hitchcock's famed horror flick. The product's features (quoted from the actual manufacturer's website):

  • Includes real fake birds!
  • High-quality head looks scared and has awesome hair!
  • Real fake birds! As opposed to actual birds that would shoot from the box to peck the meat from your daughter's orbital sockets? My lands, that's better than those fake babies sold as accessories with the Mother's Helper Whatever Barbie!

    I think I' m most amazed at the expression of mildly-annoyed horror, glamorized mildly-annoyed horror, frozen on Barbie's face. She's an amazingly graceful victim. You can almost hear what she's thinking, if dolls had thoughts: "Please do not mess on my Puccis and can you not peck at the hair? I JUST came from Paves' salon."

    Well played, Mattel.

    Alas Dana, there are some people out there who collect these things and would cease breathing if they read the part where you said someone should PLAY with this Barbie. I wish I were joking.

    I love it. I want to own it. I only wish there was more gore. A dangling eyeball, perhaps? Like when Becky on Roseanne was Tippi for Halloween?

    Mattel rocks. It looks like they forgot all the blood on her legs with ripped stockings though. What's next the Psycho shower scene Barbie? Or better yet, the Norman as Mother Ken doll. And I thought the Grease Barbies I just saw at Walmart were cool. The Birds. Who knew?

    That expression is what fear looks like after too much Barbie Botox (sold separately).

    This may be the first Barbie I've ever really wanted.

    Finally Barbie gets what she deserves.
