Integrity is at it again! This summer Integrity Toys will partner with Archie Comics to create a line of fashionable dolls based on Katy Keene and her fashionable pals.
INTEGRITY TOYS invites you to discover America’s Queen of Pin-Ups and Fashions with the release of a new series of collector dolls based on Katy Keene by Archie Comics!
The Integrity Toys design team is thrilled to announce a collaboration with Archie Comics, the acclaimed and bestselling comic book publisher that is home to some of the best-known pop culture creations in the world, including Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Josie & The Pussycats, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and more to create a series of high-end collector fashion dolls based on beloved comic book character Katy Keene and her fashionable pals.
Katy Keene, created by Bill Woggon, has appeared in several comic book series published by Archie Comics since 1945. She is a model/actress/singer known as America’s Queen of Pin-Ups and Fashions. With her long glamorous history, Katy Keene has become one of the most revered characters of the golden age of comic books and is a perfect match for Integrity Toys’ artistic know-how. Inspired by the hundreds, if not thousands of looks worn by Katy and her friends throughout her entire exciting career, the new Katy Keene collector doll line promises to bring something exciting for all of her fans, old and new alike.
“What could be cooler than a Katy Keene fashion doll? It’s the perfect idea and the perfect way to celebrate her 70th anniversary in 2015,” said Archie Comics Publisher/CEO Jon Goldwater. “We’re excited to partner with Integrity Toys to make this a reality and bring one of our most iconic properties to collectors everywhere.”
“Everyone at Integrity Toys is looking forward to the prospect of bringing the cheerful signature style of Katy Keene to life. Some of her looks jumped out of the pages and just asked to be made into doll form,” says David Buttry, Integrity Toys designer. “This collaboration came naturally for us and made perfect sense,” says Alain Tremblay, Marketing Director of Integrity Toys.
The first dolls in the series are being developed for approximately a late Spring 2015 unveil.
