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 would definitely buy the full set of Desperate Housewives dolls. I am a 46 year old doll collector and Madame Alexander makes exquisite dolls that are truly works of art and hold their value for years to come. These dolls are future collectibles that will double/triple their value within a few years of release – they are not “toys” to be played with as others noted in their posts. As far as the price point, $129.95 is relatively inexpensive for a collector doll. The “Susan” prototype is gorgeous and I can’t wait to see the rest of the ladies from Wisteria Lane!

I do not watch television so I can’t say I have ever seen the show. But I do think that the doll looks far younger and prettier than this unattractive woman who appears undernourished, and years older than her look alike doll. The price is crazy too. There are similar dolls at toy stores called My Scene dolls, or Bratz dolls…I think they are about $12.99, and they are not probably dressed in vomit green.

If it wasn’t as expensive It might be fun to launch off a firework

$129.95?!?!?!? Are you kidding me? Totally not worth it. All of the over merchandising they have done so far is not worth it! WOW! People will buy anything!

Leah on

I wouldn’t buy the dolls. I’m just not into that! Honestly, I can’t see spending that amount on a doll…not even as an investment.

Anitha on

omg like totallyyy. i love that show and i would buy one for my sister.

Soph on

No way! Little girls shouldn’t be WATCHING THAT SHOW, and if they buy the doll they’ll want to. Also ‘Desperate Housewife’ I mean what a horrible, horrible name for little girls to be getting into their heads! NO NO NO!

phyllis on

Seriously??? Maybe bobbleheads would e better..love the show for it’s quirkiness, but the dolls are so not good!

LMS on

What the???? What is this supposed to be? I don’t even know anyone who likes the show, much less the DOLLS. I just don’t get people today.
