Mattel Unveils Doris Day Barbie Collector Doll

Carmel, Calif. - Doris Day was honored last week when Mattel announced she and Rock Hudson would be the latest celebrities featured in its Barbie Collector Series.  Ms. Day and Mr. Hudson are immortalized as Jan Morrow and Brad Allen from their famous 1959 on-screen pairing, "Pillow Talk."

Ms. Day was excited about the dolls' unveiling, which came at this year's International Toy Fair in New York City.  The dolls will be available this summer from retailers including Wal-Mart and Toys R Us. 

"I just loved Jan Morrow," Ms. Day said from her Carmel, Calif. home.  "She was so spunky and stylish.  And working with Rock was always a joy.  He was an honest-to-goodness doll!"
