Will and Kate get Barbie-dolled up for their wedding anniversary

Will and Kate are Ken and Barbie!

Ken and Barbie have some serious competition: Prince William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Toy company Mattel has released images of royal couple Will and Kate immortalized as collectible dolls, done up in their garb from last year's royal wedding.

William and Kate holding tiny doll hands -- awww.Accurate and adorable, the figures don the royals' much-discussed outfits from the nuptials, including a tiny re-creation of Sarah Burton's lace masterpiece, from the house of Alexander McQueen, that Kate wore down the aisle.

A cool $100 will get you the set (click the photo at left to see it larger), which is being released April 29 to commemorate the first anniversary of that special day.

It's unclear how the life-size royals will ring in their anniversary (perhaps a raunchy female comedy?). As for the wee ones, we envision a play date with G.I. Joe and Skipper.
