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?

This is just another way to waste plastic, and add to the garbage problem. And the trees. Paper does grow on trees, but trees aren’t going to last forever! what do you think the dolls come in!!! Not tree-safe material thats for sure.
It’s not like anyone’s goona buy this anyway!! grrr

Im a huge fan of the show. I would totaly get the Marcia (Bree) doll, if they were not so much money.

I’m guessing it’s more along the lines for people who love the show and who collect dolls (and yes I know a lot of people who collect dolls). I think it’s a cute idea and yes I would buy them. The show is not dead, in fact it’s still great!

This doll looks nothing like Terri Hatcher. Couldn’t they have atleast given the doll wavy hair as to look like the real character? Even the $15 barbie doll has that! Whoever gave the final thumbs up for this doll is dumber than a box of rocks.
