  • “Space Oddity,” “Life on Mars?” and other space songs — what can we say Bowie really liked space

The popular toy brand released a new Barbie inspired by David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust.

David Bowie's first hit single "Space Oddity" turned 50 years old, and to celebrate the momentous occasion Mattel chose to release a special edition Barbie doll in honor of the late glam rocker. Of course, there will also be thigh-high platform red boots.

The doll, sporting a striped metallic jumpsuit symbolizes Bowie's alter-ego Ziggy Stardust. Now, she's dressed as Ziggy Stardust. The doll is said to be priced at ₹3,425.92 ($50).

It added that the collectible was a tribute to "the cultural legacy of the musical genius who redefined rock and roll".

The iconic rock release coincided with the moon landing and the two anniversaries have combined for an immersive app experience, along with a limited edition David Bowie release.

Mattel is not letting the fact that the Ziggy era postdates "Space Oddity" by several years interfere with anniversary plans, since a Major Tom doll would have been far less recognizable, not to mention playing with the androgyny issues even more.

The same report states that this week Mattel also announced a one-off Barbie doll which will honour and thus celebrate Samantha Cristoforetti, the Italian astronaut. Cristoforetti held the record for longest International Space Station mission by a woman back in 2014, reaching 199 days.
