Michelle Obama Doll To Take Barbie’s Place?

OXFORD, Conn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Move over, Barbie, there’s a new hot doll in town – and she’s better dressed.

Herobuilders.com, a website that sells political action figures, has just created two Michelle Obama dolls, each wearing a fashionable outfit inspired by the First Lady’s real life wardrobe.

One sports a yellow dress and black overcoat similar to the get-up Michelle wore at the recent G20 meetings, and the other dons a classic black evening dress and pearls.

Creator Emil Vicale hopes the collectible Michelle dolls become as popular as Barbie so he can make more interchangeable outfits for them including gardening gear, since Michelle loves to garden.

He hopes folks take note of the doll’s realistic physical features like a glowing smile, perfect hair, and, of course, ripped upper arms.

Vicale says he lucked out because the plastic arms are just standard ones that come with all dolls, it’s just that Michelle really is as ripped as the muscular, prototype limbs.

The dolls go for $49.95 a pop.
