Mattel's Village of the Damned Dolls

Well, Mattel never called them that - of course - but I have noticed that at least four of their dolls have odd silvery eyes. Eerie eyes ... that bypass race (Keeya is Black; Kayla is probably Latina) and gender. No, they don't have blond hair like the Children in the movie. But their eyes do stand out more than other doll eyes. Striking. So I gathered them together for a group photo. Those of you familiar with the classic film and its sequels, let me know your opinion.

The Village of the Damned Barbies include:

Fashion Fever Barbie (Wave K, 2005)

Amazing Nails Kayla (2001)

Babysitter Keeya (2002)

Awards Liam (2003)
