Mattel Launches Elton John Barbie Doll

Elton John has teamed up with toy maker Mattel to launch his very own limited-edition Barbie doll.

The Elton John Barbie does not share any facial similarities with the legendary pianist but borrows John’s dressing style.

Available at Walmart, the 12-inch blonde doll comes with the complete Elton persona, including the signature rainbow-detailed bomber jacket and flared denim pants with the initials “E” and “J” on the front of each leg. The doll will also feature John’s iconic rosy shades and signature bowler hat.

“Barbie is an icon in her own right, so having her pay tribute to my work and personal style is a real honor,” John said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “I hope that she inspires fans everywhere to fearlessly pursue their own dreams and limitless potential.”

The Elton John Barbie, including a bedazzled collectable box with a doll stand, retails for $50.

“This collectible Barbie doll is a bold collaboration that personifies two cultural icons and honors the extraordinary artistry and musicianship of a stellar performer,” reads the Walmart product description.
