(Philadelphia PA) The Madtell Corporation was so impressed with sales of its Suicide Barbie it decided to follow up with its promised Graveyard Barbie. The famous doll's new incarnation is designed for Baby Boomers approaching their final years and for psychotically morbid little girls. Lilith D'ville is product engineer and had some information about the newest model.
"Graveyard Barbie is DOA. She comes packed in her own designer coffin that can also be hand-painted by the artistic buyer. She comes with a choice of clothes for burial. Depressed consumers had lots of fun choosing her final outfit in our product testing. Graveyard Barbie also comes with a tasteful selection of dried flowers. A little book with burial customs of major religions is included. We just love this dead doll!" said Ms. D'ville.
A lot of the customers plan elaborate funerals that other dolls attend as mourners. Ken, Skipper, and the Cabbage Patch Kids frequently show up at the burial. It's recommended that Graveyard Barbie be buried in a shoebox filled with dirt (not included).
