I Love These Dolls 14 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I always wanted to start a Barbie collection, but as a broke college student it is hard to make myself spend money on a doll. However, I am a huge fan of the book and movie so when I saw these, I had to get them. I know they don't look like Liv or Viggo, but I was glad that they didn't. The whole point of having a barbie doll dressed like a character is that it looks like barbie dressed as that character. Other wise it is just a Arwen or Aragorn doll made by Mattel. The costumes look like the ones from the movie. Barbie even has pointy elf ears and Ken has a sword!

Interesting product. Nice looking Barbie. 14 Jan 2004
By Lunataina - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Let me start saying that I have loved LOTR for nearly 2 decades now. I was in elementary school when I first read the Tolkien novels and have re read them several times since. I've also studied the novels in depth, reading as much about them as I can. That being said I can honestly say there is nothing wrong with this toy. Barbie looks like Barbie and Ken looks like Ken. That's what they are supposed to look like. It is what they are advertised as (Barbie as Arwen and Ken as Aragorn). No false advertising there. The costumes are nice and somewhat based on the Peter Jackson films. They are actually quite pretty. The figures DON't look like Live Tyler and Viggo Mortgensen. I don't believe they were meant to look like these actors. As far as looking like Arwen and Aragorn, who says they don't? No one knows what Arwen looks like nor what Aragorn looks like. THey are not real people, just fictional characters. The beauty of fictional characters is that when you read the novels they can look like anybody you imagine. That's the great thing about reading, and what makes a good novel is how well it stimulates your imagination. Arwen looks very different to me than to my husband, and that's the way it should be. Now that the movies are out, many people will automatically picture the actors when reading the book, which is a great loss. Don't get me wrong, I like the movies, but it's a mistake to think that they are the true Lord of the Rings because they are not. They are someone's vision of what Tolkien wrote. The same can be said of these Barbie figures. They are beautiful in their own right, but to expect them to meet some sort of personal standard of Tolkienness is a mistake. Appreciate them for what they are, and don't expect them to be what they are not. They are a nice toy, great for people who like collecting Barbie, beautiful dolls. Recommended for adult collectors (too delicate for kids to keep in good condition for long).

Beautiful! 22 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I'm shocked that these dolls have caused some controversy here. I think they're beautiful. There have been numerous dolls based upon great movies such as Gone With The Wind and Star Wars. To the people who say Barbie and Ken don't look like the characters, as someone else here mentioned, the dolls are supposed to still look like Barbie and Ken. Barbie looks gorgeous and the Ken doll is the handsomest one I've ever seen. I think most Ken dolls look lame but this one is wonderful. The clothes are just amazing. I have the dolls displayed in my home and I love looking at them!

Lighten up, everyone! 3 Feb 2004
By M. W. Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
If I were a real hobbit, I'd think this set would be a perfectly fun "mathom" (trinket) to receive on my birthday - and proceed to give someone else on their birthday. I think the fact that Tolkien created the fun-loving race of hobbits is proof that he wouldn't have minded people having a bit of fun with his characters, and maybe there are some Barbie collectors out there who are Tolkien fans too, so why not make something especially for them? The one thing I wonder about - are Barbie/Arwen's ears pointed? Some customers might be disappointed if they aren't.

They're Gorgeous!!! What a wonderful set!! 10 Dec 2003
By Deborah MacGillivray - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
As a LOTRs fan and a Barbie Collector, this is a MUST!! I mean this is THE BEST Barbie and Ken set they have ever put out. Oh, moan, what I would not have given to have THIS Aragon Ken instead of that felt-headed one we had!!
I thought they could not outdo the ROmance Book Set they did earlier this year, but WOW they did. The Costumes are stunning. Arwen is so beautiful in her peridot coloured gown. Gorgeous little elven ears keep through the long hard hard. The gown has full, long medieval sleeves and she alone would be one of the best Barbies. But Aragon/Ken is stunning. His breastplate, chain and sword are so details and the face!!!! he looks so like Viggo rather than Ken. Matel did right by Lord of the Rings with this set.
So is a much for Rings Collections and a must for Barbie collections.
Would give it 10 stars if I could
