Twilight has a lot of fans. Fans of all ages. So Mattel figures why not capitalize on some of the fame and make some Twilight dolls in the likes of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. But we have a feeling it's not going to be only kids buying these dolls.
Girls go crazy over Robert Pattinson's Twilight character, Edward Cullen, so why wouldn't they want a doll that looks just like him? And then once they have the Edward doll, they're going to need Kristen Stewart's Bella Swan doll as well. You know, so they can have them go out on dates and kiss and stuff.
Mattel's Edward Cullen and Bella Swan Barbie dolls will be available at Toys R Us in October. Right before the release of New Moon! It's been said that the Edward doll will be "luminescent with a shimmering complexion and trademark gold eyes." And Bella is "dressed in her signature outfit from the movie." The dolls will sell for $34.99.
If the dolls sell well (which they will), we wonder if Mattel will start making other Twilight characters. We'd like a Jacob Black ourselves.
We have a feeling a lot of adults will be purchasing these Twilight dolls for collectors items. And maybe to snuggle with a little bit.
