Limited Edition Moschino Barbie Sells Out In An Hour! - The Shade Room

Limited Edition Moschino Barbie Sells Out In An Hour!

Mattel and Moschino teamed up to produce a line of dolls inspired by the swagged out fashion line. Ironically, the Barbie dolls sold out in under an hour despite the $150 price tag!

Aside from how beautiful they are, the commercial for the dolls has people talking!  Jeremy Scott chose to have a young boy star in the commercial, a first for the brand. They’re being praised for being so progressive by challenging what some may call gender stereotypes. A YouTuber commented, “I used to play with my sister’s Barbies and felt such shame afterward. I’m so glad we can just let kids be kids. Thank you for this. Boys like dolls too.” Another person commented, “This is what progress looks like.”

The little boy is the star of the commercial! He totally won us over with his perfect grin and the wink! He says “Moschino Barbie is so fierce!” as he showcases the beautiful brown Barbie in his hands, donned with the latest clothes and accessories from their line.

Roommates, would you put this on your Christmas list for bae? We hear they’re reselling the dolls on EBay for around $800! ????????
