Feast your eyes on the scariest-looking dolls EVER.
British toymaker Arklu has just come out with “The Royal Wedding Dolls,” Barbie-ish replicas of TRH Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge that I wouldn’t be able to keep in my bedroom. One can select a Catherine doll for $82.00 or both the Duke and Duchess for $164.00. The company states on its site,
“A host of renowned British designers have come together to exclusively dress and accessorise the ArkluTM Princess Catherine Wedding Doll and the ArkluTM Prince William Wedding Doll. The instantly recognisable and, some might say, delightfully kitsch wedding dolls pay homage to the stunning best-of-British outfits that so impressed the world when HRH Prince William of Wales married Catherine “Kate” Middleton on April 29, 2011.”
The Daily Mail put it perfectly when they compared the dolls to those from the 1960s series, Thunderbirds. Can you imagine Prince William staring at you while you try to fall asleep? Arklu is donating a portion of the profits RNLI, a charity that attempts to save lives at sea. For their first public appearance as an engaged couple, William and Catherine launched a lifeboat for RNLI up in North Wales.
I’m a little pissed that the engagement ring is amethyst and not blue sapphire. How do you skip over that one detail?
Terrifying. Simply terrifying.
