The Birds Barbie doll gets her eyes pecked
Presumably to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds
, Mattel is releasing this special, limited edition Barbie doll, modeled after Tippi Hedren's iconic pose: a single, soft white hand shielding herself from a horde of feathered rates eager to plunge their beaks into the sweet aqueous vitreous of her eyes. It could only be more historically perfect a tribute if the accompanying Ken doll was modeled after Sir Alfred himself, lecherously smacking his ponderous jowls after Barbie Tippi's shiny, segmented, asexual pudendum, which would at least fittingly capture Hitchcock's fascination with most of his starlets. $44.99 when it is released later this year.
: As I mentioned in the comments, they should really follow this up with a Psycho
-licensed Vivien Leigh Barbie, with Ken as Norman Bates in drag.
