'Desperate Housewives': Not just for adults anymore

9302__dolls_lWith Madame Alexander’s upcoming (and oddly featureless) Desperate Housewives dolls getting unveiled on the cover of Fashion Doll Quarterly, it got me thinking ahead to the confusion such an adult-oriented line might cause among the target doll-playing demographic. To that end, here’s my list of the Top 5 Things My Nieces and Nephews Are Bound to Utter During the 2007 Holiday Season:

5. "Mommy! Mommy! I can’t tell the difference between the ball-busting ad exec and the horny real-estate agent!"
4. "No! You play with the Susan doll!"
3. "Mom? Where did you store my ‘N Sync action figures? I need J.C. to help play out Gabrielle’s extramarital affair with her teenage gardener."
2. "Grandma! Uncle Michael won’t give me back my Bree doll! He says she’s helping him bake cranberry scones!"
1. "We’re not negotiating my uterus!"

    It’s creepy they all look the same…just with different hair color.

    Please say it isn’t so…Desperate Housewives dolls from the venerable Madame Alexander company? Somehow they just don’t go along with the classic MA doll lines like Wizard of Oz, Raggedy Ann and Andy, and the like. I can just picture it now: one of those slutty dolls on display right next to my daughter’s First Communion girl Madame Alexander doll! Ick!

    With Madame Alexander’s upcoming (and oddly featureless) Desperate Housewives dolls getting unveiled on the cover of Fashion Doll Quarterly…I thought to myself:
    “There’s something called Fashion Doll Quarterly?!”

    Yes, Nsync made action figures back in the marionettes tour. I got my then girlfriend a set of all five of them for about $2.50 each from the clearance secition of Toys R Us. Snoop Dogg and Kevin Smith also have pretty cool action figure lines, but none tops the Japanese custom made “Android Hunter” (Blade Runner) figures or the custom made “Baby Cart assasin” (Lone Wolf and Cub) figure set.
    What I’m curious about is what other losers (ahem, besides me) are in their late 20’s/ early 30’s and are still buying (and presumably playing with or displaying) toys made for kids?

    Now THOSE are the Stepford Wives.

    Their faces all look the same!
