“Harry Potter” Scribe J.K. Rowling Gets Her Own Barbie Doll

Now don’t get jealous, Stephen King. Mattel has created a one-of-a-kind J.K. Rowling doll to honor the billionaire-ess author of the Harry Potter series. At last, a Barbie who can realistically afford all those clothes, the pink Corvette, and mortgage payments for the Barbie Dream House! The J.K. Rowling Barbie made her debut alongside a tennis-playing Kim Clijsters Barbie and Swedish Crown Princess Victoria Barbie, all of whom a Mattel spokeswoman heralded as “true role models” for girls. Unfortunately, none of the three Barbies will be for sale for the general public. Sorry, Muggles! Instead, the new Barbies will chill at a toy fair in Nuremberg, Germany, with other one-of-a-kind Barbies, like Oprah and German Chancellor Andrea Merkel. Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall at that doll-y tea party? [Sky News]
