City Slickers: Can Carrie Bradshaw and Pals Ever Be Cut Down to Size?

Many years ago, when I was putting together an issue of DOLLS, I asked readers to share which currently famous or historical people they’d like to see made into dolls. Not surprisingly, movie stars and singers led the way. There were tons of thumbs-up for Madonna, Nicole Kidman and Cher. And, interestingly enough, a Cher doll from Mattel hit the market soon after our nonscientific poll ran. (I called it the “Cher and Cher Alike” effect.)

It’s certainly not headline-grabbing news that flashy and fabulous entertainers would be more in demand than, say, scientific researchers and math geniuses. Of course, most of us want to collect a Lady Gaga doll over a Madame Curie replica. After all, Gaga has such a wide variety of outrageous costumes to go gaga over, compared to Marie Curie’s simple frock and lab coat.

It’s quite astounding to me, then, that with the basic formula of “glamour plus wardrobe versatility” equals a “big-selling doll,” we haven’t yet seen a line of “Sex and the City” fashion icons.

Clad in eye-popping costumes from New York designing doyenne Patricia Field and other cutting-edge urban clothiers, the Cosmo-swilling quartet seemed ripe for the manufacturing. After the show exited the airwaves, the fierce foursome found box-office success on the big screen followed by worldwide DVD sales. Despite all of this marketing activity, no vinyl versions of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha have emerged.

Recently, I was chatting with Robert Tonner (I know, I love my job) and I mentioned how I’d always imagined the HBO hobnobbing group would be perfect fodder for his keen eyes. He agreed that the city gals were right up his alley, and he had wanted to pursue a chance to immortalize them as plastic clotheshorses. However, licensing issues and behind-the-scenes negotiations about likeness rights stopped that divine translation from ever happening. That’s too bad because I think the Tonner touch would have been golden for making these bold globe-hoppers into display-case darlings.

If the “Sex” gals had been made into dolls, I wonder if I would have bought all four women or just collected one and her accompanying accessories. Picture the Carrie doll, complete with tutu, laptop, enormous flower brooch, nameplate necklace and stiletto heels to topple off. Or, envision Miranda with a walk-in closet worth of business suits, briefcases and sensible shoes.

Charlotte would have been a delight to deck out in deck shoes, a cute Lilly Pulitzer-inspired sailor suit, and preppy cardigans and high-polished pearls. Samantha? Think negligees and naughty necklines, and you’ve got the picture.

Perhaps these gal pals who have captivated women and men alike with their candid conversations and their frank and funny dialogue will become collectibles in the near future. We certainly don’t want this celluloid conversion to take too long. We don’t want these heroines, already steeped in middle age, to rival the Golden Girls by the time their sculpting is begun.

Until that time, I sit and wonder, a la Carrie Bradshaw, will the “Sex and the City” cast members ever become fashion dolls, or are they too gutsy and aggressive to play nice? Is it necessary to be a good girl to be a good doll? Or, as these four actresses get older and more seasoned, has their season of bewitching become a moment of the past? Their flashiness rusting into flash-in-the-pan territory.

I don’t know the answers to my pondering, but I can carry the hope that Carrie will be on my office shelf one day soon. How about you? Where do you stand on these “ladies” being celebrated as fashion dolls? Or, is there someone else you’d like to see walk the red carpet of your imagination? Tell me what you think, and maybe your wish will come true. Here’s hoping anything can come true in the City!

Photo Caption
Every Sunday night, woman—and men, too—would flick on HBO to see what outfits were being worn by the effervescent cast members. Clothing was a featured player in the weekly series—detailing how the characters changed and matured. Now, the films have continued the tradition.

I have been waiting for them to make these dolls. Several years ago I had read they were going to be produced and then I never saw another word. They could be so fun! The clothes and accessories would be amazing! Come on Robert! Push a little harder!~ Laura

I think this would be a great idea. I would definitely get all four and would love to have "Carrie" clothes as an extra. I could display them along side my Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and Cher dolls!

I wouldn't want to buy the "Sex and the City" dolls I would much rather have a really nice set of Desperate Housewives dolls. Madame Alexander made a set, but I didn't think they looked like the wives.
Donna Reitz , June 22, 2010

I have wanted dolls of these gals for a long time,I dont know if I could afford Tonner's version.Im still wishing for a Madonna doll.

Fo the 2008 Barbie National Convention we created a complete set of the 4 gals in the first Movie and inspired by the wedding scene. It was auctioned for 6000$ for charity and tons of collectors would love to have a doll size of them. if you wanna take a look at http://www.magia2000.com/gallery/donated/satc.html

and now for the second movie we have just created a new Sarah/ Carrie doll, but still waiting to introduce her in Cleveland.

I truly hope Mattel or Tonner could create dolls like them, they are always on fashion and beautiful.

I think the dolls and the wardrobe choices would be gorgeous, but I don't think this will ever happen. The characters come with too much baggage. They are too raunchy and too wild. People don't want to buy these for their children. It will be confusing to marketers. They are really ADULT toys. Too, too sexy ladies.
Sandy , June 16, 2010

Robert Tonner would be the perfect person to create dolls of the Sex and the City gals. Since Kim Cattrall already played a mannequin you'd think it would be an easy transition to doll form. Frankly, SJP always seemed a little "horsie" to me; she might be frightening reduced in scale. I read Stephanie Finnegan's blog every week, it's become my favorite part of the magazine!
Crystal , June 15, 2010

Too bad there are problems getting the rights. I so want these dolls! And a Lady Gaga doll is another terrific idea. That would be even more fun.
Billie , June 15, 2010

I think the clothes would be the best part but now you have me wondering why one of the OOAK repainted Barbie dolls has not surfaced in the likeness of a Sarah, or one of the others, as Lady Gaga already has!
Darlene , June 15, 2010
...
I think making these characters into dolls is a great idea. But they would also get lonely, so there'd have to be a "Mister Big", a "Steve" and a "Harry" doll. Not to mention the numerous boyfriends/lovers to accomodate Samantha. I don't think she would go for Ken.
Cathy Cosentino , June 15, 2010

Sarah Jessica Parker is a fashion goddess. She is an icon to anyone who has style and taste. Part of her mystique is how she WEARS her clothing. She knows how to move and to stand. I don't know if a doll can do that. Sarah is beautiful because of WHO she is, not only because of her clothes. I don't know if that inner beauty can be sculpted. smilies/kiss.gif

years ago i had wizard of oz dolls in full costume; i also have dogs. when and if sex and the city dolls hit market, i can use their costumes for my wicked witch and flying monkey.
