25 Mini Me Innovations

From Celebrity Barbie Dolls to Customized Bobbleheads

— November 14, 2010 — Life-Stages
The 'Austin Powers' franchise may have coined the term "mini me," but now the concept of a miniature doppelganger belongs to the pop culture enigma. With an array of variations of a mini me, it's hard not to want a pint-sized person made in your likeness.

This cluster collects many mini-me innovations, from personalized cupcake toppers to customized 16-inch dolls that would make the perfect stocking stuffer.

Implications - With so many different designs emerging in the modern sphere, consumers crave some sort of customization. Products which are created with personal detailing are more appealing than those which only work towards attracting the general audience. Designers could focus on this desire for a closer connection to clothes in order to widen their audience.
