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?

YES — I would buy the doll. Expecially since alot of the commentors said no, some rudely. It will be an excellent collection and will bring in a lot of monies ten years from now. You go girls.

My daughter loves watching Housewives with me and ADORES Bree. I will consider buying Bree for her as a birthday present.

No, I would not buy these dolls. First, I am not a fan of the show, as I belive it promotes promiscuity and seems to have the general content of smutty romance novels. Secondly, I wouldn’t even pay that much money for any doll, Barbie, Desperate Housewives, or any creation of Madame Alexander’s.

From MDin Ont.,Can. Are you kidding?!? 12.95 maybe as a novelty, and I suppose we’re expected to buy all 5 to complete the set! No thanks!

Alex Stone on

Ok, so I like the show! Im totally getting Bree. HI MOM!!!

Absolutly REDICULOUS idea!! They are cute dolls but such an insane price for a product without similarity to the actors thay are supposed to “be”. My guess is that maybe 5 will sell and even that is pushing it. Hey, its a stalkers dream.

Give me a break…what adult in this day and age would still play with a doll? Don’t tell me, desperate housewives are trying to also claim their profits in the children’s toy department. Honestly, I would not buy my child that doll. As if Mary-Kate and Ashley dolls weren’t bad enough, here come the ladies of Wysteria Lane…good gracious help these people.
