  1. Love the fashions but the dolls look nothing like the characters. Poppy Parker looks more like Betty Draper than any Silkie ever will. I wonder who could be Joan Holloway - Dania maybe?

  3. Nice! I wish the men looked a little more like Don and Roger, but otherwise very cute. I will have to have Betty & Joan.

  4. I think Roger and Don look pretty good. Not exact but a good attempt. Joan and Betty look like regular Silkstones,no creativity there what so ever.

  5. I hope to get the Eiffel Tower dressed doll. She is gorgeous, and the dress is superb.

    I am surprise that the Silkstone men don't look as goofy as I thought they would.

  6. WOW Mattel not only canceled "gay" ..ahem Sugar dady Ken but they went with a homophobic show ( I don't mean the actors or producers personally but the show it self is not a great example of where society was back them..the cheating-abusive husband...the submisive wife...barbie whent from president to kept woman that allows her husband to cheat...

  7. @ Stratos: Yes, the clothes and styles of the dolls really look good here, but I think the designer just copied the "styles and fashion" of the characters from Mad Men, and not totally copy them, or else it will loss the so called "inspiration. Don looks the best by the way.. =)
