Twilight Barbie UpdateAug 11th, 2009 | By Krystal | Category: Featured Articles, Merchandise
Summit has sent us some updated information on the upcoming Bella & Edward Barbie Dolls, which hit stores November 1! The Barbies will be available for $24.95 each where dolls are sold.
Here is a statement from the Barbie designer:
“I fell in love with the TWILIGHT series and was obsessively reading the books when I was assigned the project to design the Edward and Bella Barbie dolls. As you can imagine, I was thrilled to find out that I would design the dolls and get to work with Stephenie Meyer. Stephenie herself came to Mattel and art directed the look of the dolls. She was integral in perfecting every detail as she really wanted Edward and Bella to embody the spirit of the characters that she envisioned while writing the series. We also had the ACTUAL costumes from the movie set that were used in the “Forever 17” scene to help inspire the costumes for the dolls. It was an unforgettable experience and I hope TWILIGHT fans are just as excited about the dolls as I am!”
