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?

HA for that price, they should at LEAST look more like the person!!! thats a very good show, but………..its not really “kid friendly” you could say, i think it might make the younger, barbie playing, children want to watch the show and then they will all be wayyyyyyyyy to “old” for their age. just take it off the shelf please…

$129.95!! For crying out loud! I doubt very much if that many people are going to buy them with that outrageous amount! They are gross looking anyway.

I would not buy the dolls, I can’t imagine what will I do with it, play with it or display in my china…lol

Ken on

I would buy this doll if it wasn’t so expensive!

As a collecter of 16″ Fashion dolls they are very well done and I plan to purchase the whole set. these 16″ fashion dolls are not dolls for children to play with they are a adult collectors item and are very expensive on the secondary market. There are 3 top brands of these dolls and they can go for upwards of $500.00 dollars for limited editions. So someone who does nothing but sit and watch desperate housewives probably can’t afford them or get off the sofa.

I guess you have to be a stalker if you bought one of these dolls or an over obsessed fan.Just someones way of getting more money quickly for their own personal gain. now if the money when to something to help the homeless or diiferent organizations then that would make sense to buy one…but then again not really. Who wants a doll thats suppose to look like an actress but doesnt come close?

Meshka on

No, Sorry, I wouldn’t spend the money. The show was great the first season, I never missed an episode. Second season, well, not so great. I would have thought you’d get dolls made after your show once it’s been on the air for 10 + seasons…..but hey, it is what it is

normita tobias on
