Watch out, Ken! Barbie will always get her man, now that she's in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Wait, now, that didn't sound right. Well, she will always bring in wanted men.
Almost there: Barbie will always successfully arrest people accused of crimes. The RCMP's official shop sells Barbie dolls wearing the dress uniform of Canada's famed wilderness marshals. The Globe and Mail reports:
Bianca McGregor, who heads up marketing for the RCMP Heritage Centre in Regina, told the Leader-Post that, initially, the gift shop took the dolls to see how they’d sell, and it turned out well.
“You’ve got two really strong brands,” she told the newspaper. “With Barbie you’ve got a brand that for some people it’s not a toy, it’s an investment. And then you’ve got one of the strongest brands this country has to offer.”
By the way, Cookie Monster (plush) Mountie costs $10 more.
It costs more to feed Cookie Monster while he remains unsold.
