The Kelly Osbourne celebrity doll depicts her at 17 as herself during the time of her family’s MTV reality show called The Osbournes. The show ran from 2002 until 2005. The Kelly Osbourne doll was manufactured by Fun-4-All Corp in 2002 with a license from the Signatures Network as part of series that included her family. Sharon, Jack, and Ozzy appeared with her on the show.
Kelly’s father Ozzy Osbourne is a Grammy Award-winning English singer-songwriter whose career began in 1968 as vocalist for the English heavy metal band Black Sabbath. After 1978 his long solo career and marriage to Sharon Adler led to more fame, fortune, and finally a reality TV star.
The doll box reads
Since their debut, The Osbourne Family- the new “first family of television” – has won the hearts of millions of viewers with their infectious, if slightly oddball, antics. Ozzy, Sharon, Kelly and Jack have completely redefined the family experience of the modern age!
Unlike most celebrity dolls, this collection is part bendable plush and part vinyl doll. Only the head, below the knees, and arms from just above the elbow down are vinyl, the rest of the doll is cloth. The cloth sections are wired to bend and hold a pose, but the head is fixed. The doll has has Kelly signature plastic pink hair with molded black headband. The outfit is a red, black, and white striped long sleeved collared shirt over a white t-shirt and a black below the knee length skirt with an elastic waist band. Around the neck is a think black ribbon choker. All the clothing is removable, except the sewn in white underwear and the knee high black plastic boots. This was sold as a talking doll, but the doll which is over 10 years old has barely working batteries and the talk box just garbles. The batteries have almost expired and are probably starting to leak at this point. To access and change the battery inside (3 LR44 button batteries) the seams of the doll’s back must be opened.
