Move over Mojo Dojo Ken, there’s a new Barbie in town. Mattel released collectible dolls inspired by Ted Lasso on Tuesday (Oct. 24).
If you’re a fan of theshow, starring Jason Sudeikis, you might get a kick out of Mattel’s new collection. The Ted Lasso Barbie is dressed in the character’s signature blue tracksuit with AFC Richmond logo detailing and a working zipper. The doll comes complete with aviator sunglasses, a whistle and a soccer ball.
The commemorative packaging recreates AFC Richmond’s locker room –- there’s even a “BELIEVE” sign and Nate’s homemade suggestion box.
The Barbie x Ted Lasso collection includes two other dolls made in the likeness of characters Rebecca Welton, played by Hannah Waddingham, and Keeley Jones, played by Juno Temple.
Like the characters on the show, the Rebecca Welton doll is dressed like a “soccer boss” in a pale pink shirt, black wide leg pants and a pink bag while the Keeley Jones Barbie goes glam up in a hot pink dress, pink purse and fur stole.
The Emmy-winning comedy series, developed by Sudeikis, Brendan Hunt, Bill Lawrence and Joe Kelly, premiered during the pandemic in 2020 and helped launch. The show, about an inexperienced American football coach hired to manage a British team, ended in May after three seasons.
