BONG. BONG. BONG. What’s that noise? It’s the collective ticking of biological clocks in the Frisky offices. Seriously, don’t bring any babies around here. We’re a bunch of baby-hungry harridans. But can you blame us? We had to watch “little mommy” doll commercials like this growing up. [Sociological Images] Keep reading »
The Gossip’s chanteuse Beth Ditto let Superdoll Collectibles give her the Barbie treatment to promote her line for Evans, a plus-sized clothing chain in the UK—and here she is!
We’re psyched the Beth doll will be stage-diving at a rock show while Barbie’s back at the Dream House, doing her nails and mooning over Ken. But it’s rather annoying that Beth-the-Doll is a slimmed-down version of Beth-the-Singer. Real life Beth has belly rolls and wears wackadoo kabuki makeup; she doesn’t have pristine skin or sexy Barbie doe eyes.
As Big Fat Deal put it, “Beth Ditto’s supposed dolly doppelganger has all of her thigh dimples lipo’d away. So close and yet, so far.” We’re not saying the doll’s got to have cellulite—although that would make us feel better about ours. It’s just that the doll Beth looks, well. plastic.

There’s some stiff competition, but the sluttiest Barbie of all time has just come out: Black Canary. It’s based on the comic book character and conservative Christian groups are pissed because the kids brand doll has been (even more) tricked out in this outfit — a vinyl teddy and knee high boots with fishnets. Does Barbie like it rough? Now, we’re not sure who the market for this S&M Barbie is, but it looks just like Cher from the “If I Could Turn Back Time” video. Patent vinyl is clearly a timeless fashion classic. [Dlisted]
