Dolls—they're not only for girls!

In a first for toy company Mattel, a advertisement for a new Barbie features a boy.

The limited edition Moschino Barbie is outfitted in the fashion design house's clothes, and is a parody of an ad that ran in the 1980s. The young boy, who proclaims the doll "So fierce!" represents American fashion designer Jeremy Scott.

Scott told CBS News why a boy was chosen for the ad:

"When I dreamed up the concept for the Moschino Barbie fauxmercial, I felt it was natural to have a little boy representing for all the little boys like myself who played with Barbies growing up," Scott said in an emailed statement. "Barbie was more than a toy -- she was a muse!"

Boy or girl, Moschino Barbie ain't cheap. The fabulous dolls are going for $250+ on eBay.

Fail of the Day: Police Break Open Car Window to Save One Very Realistic Doll

Police in the UK were fooled by one very realistic looking doll.

What started out as a rescue mission to save a baby left laying in the front seat of a locked car ended in embarrassment for police in Dudley, West Midlands.

After a concerned citizen notified the police of an infant in danger, officers jumped into action—smashing Delesia Rattray's car window. But they didn't find what they expected.

When Rattray returned to her car she found a note from police telling her to call the station. Fearing that a baby's life was in danger, the police smashed her window to save what turned out to be Rattray's 10-year-old sister's baby doll.

The doll was wrapped in a blanket with only its head poking out. Police have since apologized and agreed to cover the cost of replacing the window.

You tried, Dudley police. You tried.
