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?

I luv the show but the dolls are WAY too expensive and they don’t look like the actresses!!! good luck to who ever is selling them, I don’t think you’re going to get too far!!!

I agree with 97% of the comments here but, Milly does have a really good point….it seems like an investment item more than anything else!
Remember that “beanie baby” craze some years back!?!?

Ewwww! These women look just fine. Personally, I don’t watch the show but I know enough to say that they should not put out 125 dollar dolls!

I think that’s an incredibly ridiculous idea! Desperate
house wives need to not be so desperate for cash. Get serious and set a good example for the kids!

La La on

ummm. i luv the show but it doesn’t even LOOK like her! Plus, collector dolls for a tv show? a bit over the top dont ya think?

This is just way too odd for me. I can’t recall an adult-oriented show marketing dolls (can ER possibly design a “history of” line and give us a George Clooney doll?!). Seriously, it seems a rather desperate (and pathetic) attempt to garner some attention for a program that doesn’t seem to be living up to past hype. And, as a side note, this particular model looks NOTHING like Teri Hatcher. Is it supposed to be her or just a generalization, i.e. long brown hair, slim figure, etc. Creepy…..

i am a big fan of DH but i will not buy the dolls!
