Meet The Desperate Housewives Dolls

01/04/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

The ladies of Desperate Housewives are being immortalized as dolls (the fashion-plate equivalent of an action figure), but these aren’t your average Barbie. Created by legendary doll-maker Madame Alexander, Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria, Nicollette Sheridan, Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross are being taken down to size — 16 inches, to be exact. According to the New York Post, the likenesses of the five actresses, in their Desperate Housewives guises will pose and bend and be unveiled at the New York Toy Fair in February and in such stores at F.A.O. Schwartz by June. And don’t think these are for the kiddies — at $129.95 each, they are being marketed primarily to collectors. The ladies are in signature outfits from a green silk frock for Hatcher’s Susan to a prim white gown for Cross’s Bree. Tell us: Would you buy a Desperate Housewives doll?

Susan on

I would not buy this doll. Desperate Housewives was a great show for the first season, but it is over now. I can’t believe that people would actually spend money to purchase these dolls.

A on

I didn’t realize that the target audience of desperate housewives still played with dolls…

KJ on

No, I wouldn’t buy one of the dolls.

Gayatri on

That doll looks nothing like her. Maybe her twenty years ago. I never thought she was very pretty though. But at least for that price, the dolls could look like the person their supposed to. So no, I would not buy it.

Michele on

Ewww, creepy, they look like teenage versions of the real stars. Marcia and Eva may look ‘younger’ but not the other two. I wouldn’t buy these at the dollar store!

Erin on

I would not buy the Desperate Housewives dolls, although I do like the show. Creating dolls is going a little overboard.

faith on

are you joking? i really want to know who is desperate enough–pun intended– to buy one!

and as far as the dolls looking too young? I think it would be kinda difficult, (not to mention upsetting to the actresses after all the money they’ve spent on botox), to put wrinkles on the dolls.

Erin on

That IS creepy! Although I like the show, I would never buy the dolls. Creating dolls for the characters of Desperate Housewives is going a little overboard don’t you think?

Lidiya on

I would not buy it. It is no longer interesting show

Jessica on

No,no,no. Too creepy and isn’t the target audience for DH a little mature for dolls? Even “collector” dolls.
