One Direction Dolls Are the 'Best Ever Made,' Says Double-Jointed Louis Tomlinson
One Direction has two No. 1 albums, millions of fans and a sold-out world tour, but when did the British boy band really know they were famous? When they were forever immortalized as plastic dolls.
However, there's one doll that stands out among the five as being the most life-like. "I think Niall's is really good," Zayn Malik said of bandmate Niall Horan's doll. "Actually, Niall's doll actually looks a lot like him; Louis' is good too."
"[Louis] can do that in real life as well," Liam Payne added, showing off the dolls' abilities to bend at the joints. "He's double-jointed." Louis Tomlinson replied, "That's why they're the best dolls ever made."
It seems fitting Niall "The Cute One" Horan would have the most true-to-form doll. But when it comes to which doll has the best ensemble, it's a no-brainer: Malik's varsity jackets are even swoon-worthy in miniature sizes.
"I think we all wanted them to be as authentic as possible, and obviously, if we got involved in the outfits and stuff, then it's a lot of stuff that we'd probably wear," Malik said. "And it's cool for the fans, because they get a doll with outfits that we've picked."
"All those clothes were actually worn on the Today show the first time we did it," Niall said, referring to their March appearance on the show. "We picked it from then because we thought it was good styling that day."
