Those who live in the middle of the Lady Gaga/Monster High Venn diagram have been patient. It was way back in February that Mattel announced a Mother Monster doll would join its mega-line of high school/B-movie–themed dolls, toy sets, apparel and animated entertainment. All proceeds will go to Gaga's Born This Way Foundation.
And today, Zomby Gaga is alive and on sale. For $29.99, fans and collectors of all ages can enjoy a Jack Skellington–ish Joanne singer with a tux, a long pink ponytail, shades and bubblegum. Well, they can feel the joy of pre-ordering, at least: right now it looks like Zomby Gaga doesn't ship for a couple months. Multiple listings estimate the ship date to be early January 2017. Toys "R" Us has the estimate as Dec. 19.
The Born This Way Foundation, according to its site, is "committed to supporting the wellness of young people, and empowering them to create a kinder and braver world. We achieve this by shining a light on real people, quality research and authentic partnerships."
