As your place to learn about all things royal, Girls in White Dresses is pleased to let you know about the Prince of Cambridge — aka Prince George — Commemorative Baby Doll.
I can’t really make fun of this, since I used my own hard-earned funds to buy Prince William and Kate Barbies. But the ad copy in these type of things always amuses me. You can “be among the first” to own this “premier commemorative” doll, available “only” from Ashton Drake (just in case you were thinking you could pick one up at the local Wal-Mart). Baby Cambridge is an “impressive 20 inches long.” I don’t know about you, but 19 inches just wouldn’t have impressed me. Twenty, though — wow.
What do you think: does it look like him? I’m thinking the doll looks decidedly more dainty and feminine. Perhaps they were expecting a girl, as many of us were? Regardless, worldwide demand is expected, so DON’T WAIT. Order today!
A German toy company has come up with its own version of George — oh, but despite the name and the union jack on his outfit, the company claims the doll is not intended to be the royal baby. This is likely due to strict rules of the British Lord Chamberlain’s office against any manufacturer capitalizing on the birth of Prince George (I’m wondering how Ashton Drake got around this?). Even though the baby isn’t intended to be the royal one, perhaps he should be, given his $77 price tag.
What do you think: did any of the royals ask for or receive a baby George doll for Christmas? And if they did, was their reaction similar to Kate’s upon seeing a doll of herself? (note: my Kate Barbie is not nearly this scary).
