Mattel announces the Barbie doll "David Bowie" / Boing Boing



To celebrate the 50th anniversary of David Bowie's "Space Oddity", Mattel has announced a Barbie doll "David Bowie". On Amazon, the price is $ 50. From the New York Times:

This is a particularly androgynous look for a doll that embodies the stereotypes of the female appearance in its first iterations. In recent years, however, representations of male celebrities are not reserved for Ken. Over the last decade, Barbie has dressed like Andy Warhol, Elvis and Frank Sinatra.
