Barbies for Big Girls: Inspired by Mattel's 'Mad Men' Collection

Barbies for Big Girls: Inspired by Mattel's 'Mad Men' Collection

Mattel’s Mad Men line got us thinking about other grown-up TV Barbie sets we’d like to use for playtime. For the budding lesbian in all of us we've got dolls for Glee, Nurse Jackie, True Blood, Modern Family, House, United States of Tara, Big Love and more... There's more than one way to play with Lea Michelle, Anna Paquin, Olivia Wilde, Julie Bowen, Edie Falco, Chloe Sevigny, Ginnifer Goodwin, Sara Ramirez, Jessica Capshaw and more...

Talk about toys for big kids! Last week Mattel took its Barbie line to an entirely new level of mischief for the naughty kid in all of us with its Mad Men dolls line. The new line includes mini plastic renderings of fave early sixties smokers and boozers Don and Betty Draper, Roger Sterling and Joan Holloway.

While much ado has been made over the Christina Hendricks / Joan doll’s lack of assets, namely her torpedo-shaped Double D Playtex clad ones, and her curvy backside, the Mad Men Barbie set is still a must-have for the pervy collector in all of us. Just imagine being a burgeoning lesbian playing out scenarios with the Betty and Joan dolls! Barbie and Midge never allowed for such possibilities of lighting up the Lucky Strikes, mixing the Manhattans, popping the Mommy’s Little Helpers and passing out on the divan together.

Mattel’s Mad Men line got us thinking about other grown-up TV Barbie sets we’d like to use for playtime. 

True Blood -- Sookie (Anna Paquin), Tara (Rutina Wesley) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll).  Tight T's, short shorts and plenty of red lipstick.  A pair of fangs wouldn't be that bad, some might like it.   

House -- Allison (Jennifer Morrison) and Remy (Olivia Wilde): Doctor's jacket, nurses outfit and plenty of latex gloves.  Both doctors but something tells me that Remy would enjoy wearing the nurse's outfit more.  Open up and say "ahhhh!" 

United States of Tara –- The set of four Tara Gregor dolls includes the original Tara with a video cam to record her insight discovering her alters and a digital voice box to record breaking earnestly trendy phrases coined by writer Diablo Cody. The Tara Buck doll comes complete with a sleeveless flannel shirt, filthy truckers’ cap and a beer can that can be Velcroed to his hand. The Tara T doll comes with a hair tie for the eternal pony tail, a belly shirt, tight jeans and an interchangeable tattoo set. Finally, the Tara Alice doll comes complete with apron, baking pan and Easy Bake Oven and a disapproving look.

Law and Order: SVU -- Olivia (Mariska Hargitay) and Alex (Stephanie March).  Olivia has access to the cuffs but Alex has the law degree. Tough street cop vs. Librarian type DA, who's in?

Grey’s Anatomy –- Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) dolls. Comes with matching scrubs, stethoscopes and tongue depressors. They can play doctor… need we say more?

Big Love -– Sister Wives Doll set complete with Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn) red business suit, briefcase and exasperated expression for handling Bill’s (Bill Paxton) latest stunt. Margene doll (Ginnifer Goodwin) comes with QVC  jewelry hocking kit and cougar t-shirt for seducing Bill’s son Ben. The Nicolette Grant (Chloe Sevigny) doll comes with traditional Prairie skirt-ish garb and long blonde single-braided wig for trips to the compound. Plus, she's equipped with a slutty outfit and heels for kidnapping her daughter from the grips of plural marriage with disgusting old coots.

Modern Family -- Claire (Julie Bowen) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara).  Trenchcoat....enough said.   

Nurse Jackie -– Blue scrubs are provided for Edie Falco’s Nurse Jackie doll, plus she's equipped with two cell phones for answering her husband and her lover, an inconspicuous Oxycontin pill case and razor blade for easy snorting on those long shifts, and finally, a taser for keeping Peter Facinelli’s Dr. Fitch Cooper from grabbing her boob out of stress. Also, Eve Best’s Dr. O’Hara’s well-dressed Dr. set comes with a fashionable white doctors' coat, a lunch-time martini glass and a pull string to cackle at her best gal-pal Jackie whenever ‘Jacks’ does something hopelessly stupid.

Glee -- Quinn (Dianne Agron) and Rachel (Lea Michele).  Plaid short skirts, cheerleaders uniform (complete with pom poms) and a recording of Madonna's "Like A Virgin."
