4.0 out of 5 stars Barbie Twilight Edward Doll for kids not necessarily collectors,
This review is from: Barbie Collector Twilight Saga Edward Doll (Toy)Edward is a solid white plastic Ken type doll with sticky, spiky brown red hair and glitter spray over his head and chest. Edward and Bella arrive in two separate thin plastic boxes with Olympic National Park rain forest cardboard style backgrounds. Each doll also comes complete with a doll stand and unnumbered certificate from Mattel about the doll embedded into the packaging. If you don't want to play with them be aware that the packaging is a fragile thin plastic and may arrive cracked or broken as one of my Edward dolls packages did from a target location. Since I was planning to open a set any way I was fine with it as the second set of dolls arrived in peanuts from the another retailer. Edward and Bella are Pink label Barbie products so they are for collectors and kids but the packaging isn't durable enough to last for too many years of moving around from place to place unless you get a durable case to keep them in for the long term.
Edwards head can be squished, its a very soft plastic not hard. His hair is typical Ken and Barbie quality and is cut like Edwards in the Twilight films but a little long behind the neck. His shirt is striped not solid blue and is sewn together at a button point on the front so it stays in a specific form but the thread can be carefully cut for a child's everyday play. His hands and body are a harder white plastic typical of Mattel Barbie dolls. Overall the doll is a typical Ken and Barbie style Mattel doll made to look like similar to Edward Cullen to be enjoyed by anyone.
When I tried to order Edward and Bella Barbie from Amazon placing my order on October 6th I was forced to cancel my order a few days ago after getting yet another notice from Amazon that the release date would be into December for these dolls. The date went from approximately Nov. 7 to December sometime. I decided it was insane and rude of Amazon to keep blowing my order off like that and went to two other well known sites to find my 'target' dolls and find out how fast I could get them at the same 25.00 price. I received the 'BARBIE Twilight Edward COLLECTOR' doll by Mattel in 2-3 days from Barbie. My 'target' order came on November 4th, my Mattel order on Thursday, November 5th verses 2 months of waiting on an order from Amazon. I think this is a really sad thing because I have counted on Amazon to be at the forefront for items in the past including Twilight Saga items and they really dropped the ball on a popular item this time. If you don't mind an unknown date of delivery then by all means please give Amazon the business otherwise to get it by the New Moon release or even as a Christmas gift on time go direct to the Barbie Edward Twilight Doll manufacturer (collector site shop hint hint) this week and you'll have it at the same low price plus sadly shipping of course.
If you are looking for a better collectors style doll item or a more quality Edward as a true collectors item at a collectors price I'd go with a 17 inch tall Tonner Edward and Bella available direct from Amazon or Tonner. There are 2 versions of Tonner Bella and Edward, Amazon has an exclusive set too. If however you just want a fun souvenir for yourself or young kids at a cheap price Barbie Twilight Edward is your doll.

This review is from: Barbie Collector Twilight Saga Edward Doll (Toy)I thought it would be fun to add Edward to my vampire doll collection and I still think it was a good idea. However Edward is an Edward doll only because the manufacturer says he is. Any resemblance to Robert Pattinson seems to be a coincidence, a random happening. I guess Barbie should stick to their weirdly formed attenuated women collection. Silkie Robinson

This review is from: Barbie Collector Twilight Saga Edward Doll (Toy)Barbie Edward sparkles, but his hair is awful and he doesn't look like Edward. I suppose they used an old Ken and put sparkles and Edward's clothes on him.

This review is from: Barbie Collector Twilight Saga Edward Doll (Toy)I purchased both the Edward and Bella Barbie dolls because I am a lover of the twilight saga books by Stephenie Meyer. The Edward Barbie has very stiff, strange-looking hair, but it's kind of what I expected. He does sparkle, but doesn't resemble Robert Pattinson/Edward beyond that. It's still a great collectable item for any twilight fan.
