There has been an Elvis sighting!
The King of Rock and Roll is headed to collector’s shelves in celebration of Elvis Week, August 11-17. Mattel and Authentic Brands teamed up for a pair of new collectibles that celebrate the legacy of Elvis Presley for new and old fans alike.
Barbie enthusiasts will no doubt want to add Elvis Presley Barbie to their collections. Barbie as Elvis wears a version of Presley’s ’70s-style American Eagle jumpsuit that features red, gold, and blue sparkling eagles; an attached cape; and bell bottoms. Accessories include pointed-toe booths and a golden ring with turquoise accents. Peanut butter and banana sandwich not included.
Following the recent release of Run-DMC as Fisher-Price Little People, Elvis joins the lineup in a three-piece set that is inspired by ’50s-era Elvis with guitar; ’60s-era Elvis in black leather a la his ’68 Comeback Special; and the ’70s-era Aloha From Hawaii white jumpsuit with lei.
The Little People Elvis Collector Set is an Amazon exclusive while Elvis as Barbie is available at major retailers, including Amazon, Target, and Walmart, and select specialty retailers, including Entertainment Earth.
If you want these, it’s time for a little less conversation and a little more action, please. Add ’em to your collection while you still can!
