An iconic doll maker takes on a hot new TV product.
“Ugly Betty” is such a doll.
No, I mean it!
Famed doll maker Madame Alexander has added “Ugly Betty” to her series of Hollywood inspired dolls for the 2008 collection. Unlike the “Desperate Housewives” dolls made by the same company, Betty is being done in the traditional chubby 8-inch style which is rather appropriate, I’d say. Only trouble is, even though she’s wearing her Guadalajara poncho and her trademark glasses this doll is more Ugly than Betty.
The doll retails for $69.95 (yikes!) and can be pre-ordered for delivery in May.
