Gay collectors of dolls may be interested to know Mattel, the makers of Barbie, have revealed a special doll of Queen Elizabeth II to mark the British monarch’s Platinum jubilee.

The doll was unveiled last week, on the Queen’s 96th birthday, and has already sold out on Amazon and Mattel’s website.

The doll wears an ivory gown, blue sash, and a tiara modeled on the one the queen wore on her wedding day.

The doll is part of the Barbie’s Tribute Collection. Launched last year with dolls of Lucille Ball and Eleanor Roosevelt, the collection celebrates “visionary individuals with an outstanding impact and legacy within society.”

A spokesperson for Mattel said, “After her coronation in 1953, the Queen’s extraordinary reign has seen her lead with duty, humanitarian efforts and a life of public service, unifying the nation in celebration, reflection, and community.

“Since 1959, the Barbie brand’s purpose has been to inspire the limitless potential in every girl and remind them they can be anything.

“That message has never been more relevant than it is today.”

The doll has received a mixed reaction online. Some love it. Others questioned its resemblance to the British head of state. One disgruntled royal fan commented on Amazon, “Many reasons that this doll doesn’t look like the queen…notably she always wears the diamond a drop pearl earrings not these drop modern ones.”
