The Rosie O’Donnell celebrity doll depicts her as a talk show host. The doll was manufactured by Mattel in 1999 as a “Friend of Barbie”. Rosie O’Donnell was well known at the time as a stand up comic, movie star, and as host of a multiple Emmy award winning talk show The Rosie O’Donnell Show from 1996 to 2002. She is scheduled to host a new talk show in the fall of 2011, has a 2 hour daily radio show on SIRIUS, and runs a blog at www.rosie.com.
The doll was made as a toy not a collector’s doll and it’s legs bend, shoulders go around, torso swivels, and neck moves in all directions. Only the arms are stiff. The box came with a photo of the set of The Rosie O’Donnell Show on back of the box, so you could play talk show with it.
