Ballybofey toy company boss Ian Harkin – now based in London – has been given the royal seal of approval to sell the 12-inch high vinyl dolls which sell in Hamleys of London for Stg£100!
His company Arklu™ showed the new and exclusive Princess Catherine Wedding Doll, alongside a unique and matching Prince William Wedding Doll, at top London toy store Hamleys last night.
Two separate products were launched: An individual Princess Catherine Doll and a box set containing the Princess Catherine Doll and the Prince William Doll as a couple.
For every Princess Catherine Doll sold, Arklu will donate £1 to the RNLI.
Harkin has ordered 10,000 of the dolls – with plans to order more as interest grows around the world in the toys.
Said the Ballybofey man: “There is massive interest in the product in American and Australia. They will also be sold in Hamleys in Dublin.”
