Mad Men Barbie

Barbie and her signature hourglass figure are getting the "Mad Men" treatment.
Mattel, Lionsgate and AMC announced a partnership on Wednesday to create four dolls in the likeness of characters from the influential, Emmy-winning show set in a fashionable, 1960s ad agency.

The Betty Draper doll will wear a floral dress — with pearls and pumps to match — just like the suburban housewives of the day, and office bombshell Joan Holloway has a purple skirt suit and a pen necklace. Don Draper and Roger Sterling both get trim suits, ties and pocketsquares.

The collectable dolls, made of porcelain-like Silkstone, will be available in July with a suggested retail price of $74.95. Sketches will be distributed inside Season 3 DVD sets on sale later this month.
