Brandy To Join Barbie In Toy Stores

If you've ever wanted to take Brandy home and tuck her away in a shoebox under your bed, prepare to be thrilled.

The singer will soon turn up on toy store shelves in the form of a doll released by Mattel. The singer's record label, Atlantic Records, reports that Mattel will release its Brandy doll as a "celebrity friend" for its longtime plastic icon Barbie.

The Brandy doll should hit store shelves in the fall of 2000.

Meanwhile, the living, breathing version of Brandy that most of us are accustomed to is currently wrapping up a U.S. tour before returning to work on her UPN sitcom "Moesha." Here's where you can catch her:

  • 7/2 - Detroit, MI @ Joe Louis Arena
  • 7/3 - Cleveland, OH @ CSU Convocation Center
