These gangster dolls have an odd appeal, in an ironic way, as they are clearly hideous. With accessories like a crown necklace, baby bling and ‘crib on board’ t-shirts, these tough little bambinos are hard not to give attention to.
They are currently available on pre-order at $113 for the set. Gangsta Babies series 1 will be available in October 2008.
I tried, but I simply couldn't compete with the description on the Gangsta Baby website:
"Comin straight outta crib-town! Each of these 10-inch hooddlers is A-Listing in the play ground. Rockin fabtastic clothing and so much baby bling that other rug rats can only catch their vapors."
The Series 1 set contains Pookie, "the green-eyed baller", Benjino, the "carrot toped homey," Rey Rey,"a playa who is #1 with all the shorties" and Big Deuce, the "lil’ shot caller."
