Yes, It Exists: The Birds Barbie!

I found this on Geekologie a few minutes ago and had to share.

“The Alfred Hitchcock The Birds doll is a genuine Barbie, manufactured by Mattel and everything. It’s not just a doll that somebody modded in their basement (although by all means feel free to do that yourself).” Here’s a description of the doll courtesy of Barbie Collector:

“Dressed in a re-creation of the stylish green skirt-suit worn by the film’s ill-fated heroine in an iconic scene, Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” Barbie® Doll celebrates the 45th anniversary of the acclaimed film. From the doll’s classic ensemble to the perfectly painted expression to the accompanying black birds, every aspect captures the film’s infamous appeal.”

And I certainly cannot do better than the Geekologie writer’s own fun commentary: “They run about $40 and are the perfect gift for a daughter that has no idea who the hell Alfred Hitchcock is. Also, I’m a little disappointed there’s no Psycho Barbie. What better way to teach our nation’s youth about diversity and acceptance than a knife wielding Barbie dressed as a man? Well, a man cross-dressed as his dead mother and about to get all stabby on some chick in the shower? I certainly can’t think of any.”
