NEW YORK (CBS) Justin Bieber is now the latest in a long line of teen idols to be memorialized in "doll" form. A set of collectibles will hit stores in December.
The 16-year-old "Baby" sensation will have his likeness -- signature long hair and all -- grace a line of collectible figurines, marketed by the merchandise company Bravado and the Bridge Direct Inc, who announced plans for the toys on Tuesday.
According to Billboard, fans will be able to purchase the toys in time for the holiday season as they're expected to hit retail stores "on or around" Dec. 4, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
The dolls will feature Bieber in a series of looks from his various music videos including "Baby" and "Somebody to Love." One figurine even comes equipped with the pop singer holding an acoustic guitar and wearing a green hoodie and jeans from his "One Less Lonely Girl" video.
The Bieber toy line will also include a microphone with concert-like sound effects that play snippets of his hits "One Time" and "Somebody to Love." Plus, "Beliebers" can also choose from plush bears, caps and "Team Bieber" tees, MTV.com reports.
"Every day I wake up and count my blessings," said Bieber of the toy line via MTV.com. "My fans have played such a large part in all of this and they help me live my dreams every day. I'm excited to share just a little bit more of my world with them through this book. Between the behind-the-scenes pictures and the story, I think this is going to be something they can all enjoy. This is just another way for me to say thank you to my fans."
