"Mummy, can I have one?"

What will they think of next?



I realise Barbie dolls aren't just for little children, and these special editions are purely marketed at adult collectors, but Mattel should learn from this little bit of IMDb-trivia:
Tippi Hedren's daughter Melanie Griffith was given a present by Alfred Hitchcock during the filming: a doll that looked exactly like Hedren, eerily so. The creepiness was compounded by the ornate wooden box it came in, which the young girl took to be a coffin.

Oh, that bit of IMDB trivia is quite eerie. Are there more of those collectible Barbies?
