It’s just not a pop culture phenomenon until it gets spoofed by The Simpsons or becomes a Barbie doll. We never would have guessed that Mad Men would do the latter… mostly because of the adultery and drinking. But it’s true, Don Draper, his wife Betty, Roger Sterling and Joan Holloway will be immortalized in plastic. The pairing is actually quite fitting as Barbie debuted in 1959 and Mad Men begins in 1960 and the original Barbie influence is evident in the style of the faces of the dolls. Fans impressed with the show’s attention to detail will appreciate the time and care spent on each Mad Men Barbie and Ken as well as the exquisite accessories like hats, overcoats, and pearls. As far as we know there are no martini glasses or ashtray accessories.
