Edward & Bella Barbie Dolls - Yes Really!!

These Barbies will be available starting on November 1st, just in time for The Twilight Saga: New Moon's release, for $24.95 where ever dolls are sold. (Not sure about Irish stores yet, but Official Twilight store on Amazon will probably have them available).

Sharon Zuckerman, the designer of the Edward and Bella Barbie dolls, is a Twilight fan and had this to say about the line: "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!"

This photo is an exclusive first-look at the dolls, set beautifully in a meadow similar to that in the film.
