Girls! Look! Your favorite play thing… past or present is now getting superstar status! Mattel is making exclusive Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry dolls! They are going to be sooo fun! But… they aren’t going to be on your kiddo’s Christmas list… and if they are… you better save up some big bucks!
The Nicki Minaj version is specifically being designed for an auction, to raise funds for the Angel Food Project. This is an organization that provides food for those affected by HIV/AIDS.
Barbie spokeswoman Stefani Yocky talked about Nicki being part of the cause,
“Barbie is obviously a pop culture icon. She’s been in the spotlight for over 50 years, and strikes that chord with girls of all ages in terms of being representative of the times. And Nicki is a big part of pop culture and also huge within the fashion industry, as well as a big Barbie fan. It’s really exciting for us that she’s been so generous to allow us to create this one-of-a-kind doll to support such an important cause.”
The auction is on December 7th.
No word on what they are doing with Katy’s doll, but I would assume the same thing? Odd that they haven’t said. But we will keep you posted!
… I admit… I’d love to have both dolls! Collector’s items for sure!
