JK Rowling Barbie doll to be displayed at upcoming German toy fair

Sky News is reporting that Mattel has created a special JK Rowling Barbie doll – which, sadly, won't see mass production:

Harry Potter author JK Rowling, tennis champion Kim Clijsters and Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria have all been given the ultimate plastic accolade: being turned into a Barbie doll.

The JK Rowling doll, meanwhile, is dressed in the black wool suit and hot pink top combination she wore at the 2009 Monsters and Critics Award Banquet.

The three one-of-a-kind Barbie dolls, which will not go on general sale, are being showcased in Mattel’s showroom at the world's largest toy fair in Nuremberg, Germany.

Exhibitors from around the world are meeting to show off the trends that will fill this year's Christmas stockings.
