Kickstart This Project?: Talking Celebrity Dolls [VIDEO]
Nicki Minaj, Angelina Jolie, Orlando Bloom, Johnny Depp, and Paris Hilton, what do all of these people have in common other than being rich and famous celebrities? Bezel Doll Group plans on making look-a-like dolls made to look like the above people after receiving funding through their Kickstarter project. Once a profitable business, donors will receive a brand new Angelina, Nicki, Paris, Orlando or Johnny doll. On the Kickstarter website, it states, “By pledging at least $25 you are pre-ordering an exclusive doll [$37 if you want a talking doll version] we are currently licensing.” The plan is to give some of the dolls the ability to talk to you.
Though, I must admit I would pay to not hear sounds from a portion of their selections (I’ll keep the names to myself.) According to celebs.gather.com, Bezel claims that these celebrities were chosen for ‘universal appeal and unique looks.’ They said that, “In the present moment, we focus on bringing to life the most nontraditional public figures to doll form.” This was kind of a weird approach, I personally would have chosen an Oprah Winfrey and Justin Bieber doll, but I’m sure the guys over at Bezel know what they are doing. They hope to have dolls ship by late February, so those interested make their donations pretty soon. Non-talking fashion dolls will retail for $27.95 and talking dolls will retail for $39.99 according to Kickstarter. The dolls will be wearing similar clothes as their human look-a-likes.
