Dressed for a rousing team practice, the Ted Lasso Barbie® doll wears the iconic sporty blue tracksuit with the AFC Richmond logo. His coaching look is complete with aviator sunglasses, a whistle, and soccer ball. Using a few “Ted-aphors” to lead his team with wisdom and humor, Ted Lasso Barbie® doll looks “Fabu-Lasso” on and off the pitch

The Jason Sudeikis celebrity doll comes wearing a replica of Ted Lasso’s track suit. The real zip up jacket is navy, lighter blue with red stripes and red knit cuffs. It is lined with white material. The pants are solid navy with an elastic waist band, real side pockets, and straight pant legs. The AFC Richmond patch and sport white logos are prominently displayed on the matching pants and jacket with iron on decals.
Underneath the jacket is a white short sleeved t-shirt with a Velcro opening at the back for easy removal. Around the neck is a one piece yellow molded plastic whistle and lanyard. The whistle is painted silver on the front side and the back end of lanyard is open (similar to a stethoscope) for removal. It really needs to be taped or polyband-ed down to stay in place.
On the feet are a pair of black soccer shoes with lace molding detail and painted white soles. No socks. A hard plastic 1/6 scale black and white soccer ball is included along with a pair of transparent brown hard plastic aviator sunglasses. The one piece mold is very fragile at the hinges, so needs to be handled with care.
The face is painted with brown eyes, eye brows, and bushy mustache. The lips are a natural pink. The short rooted hair style is slicked back with product and parts on the doll’s right side.
Articulation is at the neck, shoulders, elbows (90°), wrists, hips (does splits in both directions), knees(90°) and ankles.
The doll comes with a black plastic based doll stand and a Certificate of Authenticity.
