Mattel Releases David Bowie Barbie Doll Wearing Blue Suit

A new David Bowie Barbie doll is about to hit store shelves.

On Wednesday, the toy brand – owned by Mattel – released a second David Bowie doll in its Signature collection.

In its announcement provided to Fox News Digital, Mattel said the doll’s release was to honor the 50th anniversary of the release of Bowie’s “Hunky Dory” album, which was originally released on December 17, 1971.

The new David Bowie Barbie wears a powder blue costume, just like the iconic costume Bowie wore in his “Life on Mars?” clip from the album “Hunky Dory”.

Doll’s outfit includes other iconic details such as a metallic print striped shirt, fashionable tie, platform shoes, blue eyeshadow and “Bowie’s ’70s glam-era hairstyle” , says the ad.

The doll was designed by Linda Kyaw-Merschon, according to the website.

“David Bowie was an individual cultural phenomenon for his contributions to music, art, fashion and film – and the doll is a tribute to the pop legend who continues to be recognized as a trendsetter culture,” Mattel said in its announcement.

“Barbie first honored Bowie three years ago by recreating her alter ego Ziggy Stardust, complete with spacesuit and makeup effects in doll form,” the company added.

The new David Bowie doll will be available on MattelCreations.com, Amazon, Walmart and Target, according to the announcement.

The doll will cost $50, and on MattelCreations.com, customers are limited to two dolls per person, the website says.
