Barbie links with Stardoll in brave new toy world
USA Today, Bruce Horovitz, Mon, 14 Nov 2011
Sorry, Ken, but Barbie's got a brand new interest for the holidays: Stardoll. Mattel, the world's biggest toymaker, today will announce plans to wed the worlds of online and offline doll play by rolling out an extensive line of "Stardoll by Barbie" fashion dolls. The dolls are mini-fashionistas right down to their eyelashes, which aren't painted on but are rooted and protrude like those on more expensive dolls.

Barbie is going to spend a lot more time in the makeup chair. Though Universal Pictures is developing a theatrical feature starring Barbie, Mattel will keep the front and center on the small screen as it celebrates the 10th anni of its direct-to-DVD animated film series, whose 22nd installment, "Barbie: A Perfect Christmas," is in stores now.
