Barbie Ladies of the 80s dolls - Debbie Harry, Joan Jett and Cyndi Lauper


Mattel seems to be going more leftfield with its Barbie doll variations these days - with the Barbie Ladies of the 80s collection being particularly odd. After all, how many young kids are going to know or remember any of the people featured in it?

Or we could suppose Mattel wants to sell these to grown-ups who remember the women first time round. Take your pick from rock chick Joan Jett, new wave pin-up Debbie Harry or wacky 80s girl Cyndi Lauper, the first two coming with instrument accessories, the latter just coming with a large dress.

But all sell for the same price, $34.99 (around £21), when they hits the shelves in December. See the other two dolls over the page.

These 3 look great! Nice choices!


I somehow think these weren't created for the little girls


They're Barbie Collector dolls. Not even meant for children...


Collector is the name of the game and I collect, collect, collect! I was a teen in the eighties so Mattel did something right...whether you get it or not!! Joan Jett rocks!


I love these dolls. This was a brilliant marketing idea. No they may not be meant for little girls, however mothers who were teens in the 80s will love to have these dolls and can tell their daughters, these were my favorite singers in the 80s. It's a great way to pass on something from your childhood to a new generation. It's historical, and Barbie has always had historical significance. My only question is, where is Madonna in this collection?
