The Patricia Krentcil-inspired 'Tanorexic Doll' will certainly be the most bronzed Barbie in the the sunbathing, fake tanning-lover's collection.
Created as a nod to the sun-soaked look of the outrageously tanned New Jersey mom who came under fire for allegedly taking her daughter to a tanning booth, the doll is available for purchase at the Hero Builders website. The company has made a name for itself through its toy recreations of media firestorms.
The action figure rocks a black power suit, a bob-cut blonde hairstyle and the reddest face any plastic woman has ever donned. This will surely add another 15 minutes of fame to the Jerseyite's roster, not to mention inciting some disapproval from moms everywhere who have to explain to their daughters why faux-tanning should probably never be taken to that extreme.
