This is a great Barbie, with an awesome trench coat, amazing boots, and a perfect Sonic Screwdriver. It’s now available on Barbie.com where Mattel is clear this is for an “adult collector,” and they’re probably right. That said, for countless girls everywhere this toy is a priceless opportunity to be The Doctor—travelling across all of time and space, making friends, and having adventures.
Doctor Who® Barbie is available for $49.99.
