Thanks to the “Barbie” Movie

Michael Cera breathed new life into the long-forgotten Allan doll in the “Barbie” movie.  And the eBay listings are reflecting that.

Allan was introduced in 1964 as a friend of Ken’s, but he was discontinued a few years later and basically forgotten about.

Last week, before “Barbie” opened, original Allan dolls were selling for as low as $35 on eBay.  But now he’s going for A LOT more.  One just sold last night for $410.

For some reason, Mattel has no plans to put a new Michael Cera / Allan doll on the shelves.
