Barbie will now have the ability to see the world via Elton John’s rose-colored glasses.
Iconic singer-songwriter John, 73, has teamed up with Mattel to debut a brand new limited-edition Barbie doll in his honor.
The “Tiny Dancer” doll is being launched to coincide with the Rocketman’s 45-year anniversary of his record-breaking live performance at Dodgers Stadium in 1975 — making it the most important single-artist live performance in historical past on the time.
“Barbie is an icon in her personal proper, so having her pay tribute to my work and private type is an actual honor,” John mentioned in a press release to Rolling Stone. “I hope that she evokes followers in every single place to fearlessly pursue their very own desires and limitless potential.”
Accessible at Walmart, the 12-inch blonde doll will tackle the total Elton persona, full with a rainbow-detailed bomber jacket and flared denim pants with the initials “E” and “J” emblazoned on the entrance of every leg, respectively.
In fact, John’s iconic rosy shades and signature bowler hat are included in Barbie’s equipment. Additionally within the field is a doll stand and Certificates of Authenticity for the collectors amongst us.
“This collectible Barbie doll is a daring collaboration that personifies two cultural icons and honors the extraordinary artistry and musicianship of a stellar performer,” reads the Walmart product description.
The Elton John Barbie — full with a bedazzled collectable field with a doll stand — retails for $50.
