The first Barbie doll was launched in around the same period as the award winning television show Mad Men depicts. So what could be better than to combine the two and release a special Mad Men collectors series for adults.

Here’s a fun chance to act out what adventures could happen with Don Draper, his wife Betty and ginger bombshell Joan Holloway in the same bedroom… or then again, maybe not. For anyone who still has a childlike mind the doll versions of Don and Betty Draper, Roger Sterling and Joan Holloway will be available to buy in July with a suggested retail price of $74.95 each.

Cigarettes and Martinis not included.

    Cool idea. But they've taken the Marilyn Monroe curves away from Joan. She's too skinny.

    I agree but I guess Matell only has one Barbie model?
