El Segundo, CA — While it's still too early to tell whether or not we'll see him in the White House, expect Mitt Romney and his family in a doll house near you soon.
Mattel, Inc., the world's largest toymaker, has confirmed plans to create a special line of dolls based on the likenesses of the former Massachusetts governor and now Republican presidential nominee, his wife Ann, and their five sons.
In a statement released to the press, Mattel spokesperson Genevieve Lowenstein praised the Romney family's "sharp good looks," and reaffirmed the company's belief it was "high time such a handsome and respectable family is immortalized in polyvinyl chloride."
"If you've ever gazed upon a photo of the Romney family and thought to yourself, 'Gosh, I wish I could collect them all,' well, now you can," said Lowenstein.
Mattel's decision to release the Romney dolls was in response to overwhelming interest coming from various demographics, and is backed by extensive market research.
"We certainly did our homework and looked at the numbers, and it would've been foolish to ignore them," said Lowenstein, who confirmed that Mattel has already sold 5 million dolls on pre-orders.
The limited edition dolls will be marketed under the Barbie brand with a suggested retail price of $49.99 per doll, and should be ready in time for the November general election.
