A Doll’s Life

February 17, 2008 9:00 PM

America's Next Top Model DollsThey’re here—announcing the “America’s Next Top Model” fashion dolls: Paisley, Sienna, Sidney and Tascha. While they’re not quite of-this-world-looking (and it’s no wonder since they’re from the same manufacturer as those freakazoid Bratz dolls), little girls will no doubt love their impossible figures and flaxen hair—plus now they can play along at home with “ANTM,” which returns to The CW schedule Wednesday. According to CBS Consumer Products, which handles licensing for the show, the dolls are not based on any real-life contestants, but each does come with her own baggage—or, as the press release put it, “her very own back story bringing the glamour, beauty and responsibilities of the modeling world to life for young girls with fashion dreams.”

I just love noting the further signs of the Apocalyspe, of which this certainly is one.
