The Birds Barbie
Like most girls growing up, I had a Barbie doll. I loved how modern and chic she was and the tiny clothes & accessories were the best part. To celebrate the film The Birds’ 45th anniversary, Mattel has released The Birds Barbie doll, which is based off the ill-fated heroine Tippi Hedren, who fashioned a green skirt suit during one of the movie’s iconic scenes. This absolutely made me roar with laughter and I’m afraid I really need one to display as artwork, plus you’ve got to love the birds attached to her clothes and hair. When I was growing up here in L.A., I lived across the street from two red-headed neighbor kids that were child actors. Their big claim to fame was they were featured as children getting attacked by birds in the movie. Available here for $55.75.
