Celebrity Monday - American Idol Barbie dolls

I remembered an America Idol Barbie I have stored at my father's in law house as I found some auctions on eBay, when looking for some pieces for those Barbies I have got from the shed. I'm not a big fan of these types of shows, so I didn't get the doll for that reason. Years ago looking for a gift for my niece as I was going to Brazil I found one of these dolls at Walmart on the clearance section. Her name was Simone, I got two of the same one, one for me and one for her. Well, I'll tell  you what happened later.

American Idol is an American reality-singing competition program created by Simon Fuller and produced by 19 Entertainment, and distributed by FremantleMedia North America. It began airing on Fox on June 11, 2002, as an addition to the Idols format based on the British series Pop Idol and has since become one of the most successful shows in the history of American television. For an unprecedented eight consecutive years, from the 2003–04 television season through the 2010–11 season, either its performance or result show had been ranked number one in U.S. television ratings.[3]

 The biggest surprise of all these auditions was Susan Boyle - We all know that!!! - It was a slap on our faces, because no one believed she was all that!!Glad for those, she has an amazing voice!!!


Anyways, let's talk dolls?

This was the commercial for the dolls , it's in Spanish, but they are the same dolls.



2005 was the year picked to bring the singers out to became a celebrity. Barbie and her two friends, Simone and Tori could show all her talents for a chance to be famous.

OK great! The dolls all had a little karaoke, a stage, extra outfits and accessories. It seemed really fun toy to give as a gift, remember that I  was talking about my niece? well, she hated it!!!These dolls has is one of the worst feedback on Amazon.com . See for yourself...

Please do not get me wrong. if you are one the leave dolls in their boxes. SHE IS A BEAUTY. But i bought her to debox. it is horrible. her legs are about an inch longer than a normal doll so regular clothes DO NOT fit her. Her waist is molded in a permenant arch so she can NEVER STAND STRAIGHT. if you would like to pics of this doll next to a regular barbie please email me at tummiluvsdollies@yahoo.com - http://www.amazon.com/review/R3DXOHFH6108LW/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt#R3DXOHFH6108LW

YUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YUCK!!!!!!!! YUCK!!!
I realy DON'T LIKE THIS TOY! Her hip stays in dancing mode wich made her hard to play with.Matel realy messed up this time!Buy an african american midge because she looks a LOT like samone and she dosn't have a problem with her hips!!!I returned her cuz I DISLIKED this... this... THING!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't waist your money on this... this... THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - http://www.amazon.com/Mattel-G7998-American-Barbie-Simone/product-reviews/B000324YA2

This toy is a total waste of money. The doll might be pretty , but she -as other reviews say- is a total ripoff. DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD-EARNED MONEY ON THIS DOLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Her waist is not flexible at all and she can't even sit right.If you don't like the way she is in the box -don't buy her-because thats the way she is going to stay.  - http://www.amazon.com/Mattel-G7998-American-Barbie-Simone/product-reviews/B000324YA2/ref=cm_cr_pr_hist_1?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

Me? I was so frustrated too as my niece was very disappointed, because when she opened the box and saw that the doll couldn't move at all, from a happy, excited face, she had a "this is an awful toy" one. I felt so bad about it, that I ended up send two other Barbie dolls when I came back from Brazil.

Don't get me wrong, she's a nice add for any collection, but for display only, like mine, not to give as a gift for a kid to play with. I just don't know why, if she's one of the "regulars"dolls, she was made like this, it's just weird...

Not all celebrities dolls are as glamorous as should be huh?

Have a great wee you all!!!
