William and Kate Barbie Dolls – Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wedding recreated by Mattel
It seems like just yesterday that we all gathered round our TV to watch the Royal Wedding, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are already celebrating their first wedding anniversary.
To mark the occassion, Mattel have immortalized the couple in a Royal Wedding Barbie Collector gift set of William and Kate in their wedding outfits.
Priced at around $150, these dolls are most certainly not toys for kids. The gift set is part of the Gold Label Barbie range, and was designed by Robert Best.
The dolls are wearing detailed replicas of their wedding day outfits. The Catherine doll wears an elegant, yet contemporary, gown inspired by the original and features lovely ivory taffeta trimmed with lace and faux pearl buttons. She also comes with a wedding bouquet, silvery tiara, earrings and engagement ring.
William is dressed in the brilliant scarlet uniform of the Colonel of the Irish Guards, proudly decorated with royal blue sash, metallic cummerbund with bow trimmed in golden fringe, golden buttons and medallions.
Those looking for a cheaper alternative, should look at the dolls from Arklu, which you should be able to pick up fro around $70 for the two dolls. These are described as collector’s dolls but come at a much lower price, so you are more likely to let a child play with them.
