Barbies and Kens – Indian ishtyle…

Filed under: India — hindumommy @ 4:05 pm

Are you tired of your kids playing with blond Barbie and/or Ken? Want them to get exposed to a bit of Indian culture?

No problem.:) If you live in the UK, you can now buy them a Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Kajol or Priyanka Chopra for just 24.99.


Each doll is supposed to come with traditional Indian clothing, with the ladies wearing the most gorgeous and ornate dresses.”

While SRK is dressed in red trousers, white T-shirt and his trademark black leather jacket, Hrithik wears black trousers, black T-shirt and a white casual jacket. The boys come with an additional Western outfit.

Not my doll type but guess these dolls seem to have clicked in a big way since they make the ToysRUs UK Top 10



  1. What an out of the box idea. Guess something like this would be good for NRIs desperate go inculcate some “Indianness” in their children.
    Couldn’t help wondering about adults. Would they not like dolls of Aishwarya Rai/ Sushmita Sen/ Preity Zinta.

  2. @Hiren – I personally think you have to be **REALLY** desperate – and i don’t know about men – but no, wouldn’t want an Aishwarya Rai/Sushmita Sen doll to play with 🙂
