I really don't understand what's going on with these dolls.

Doesn't Prince William look ... not very smart? Isn't there a sort of ... I mean, doesn't it look like the next words out of his mouth are going to be "uh" and "duh"?

And why does Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge look so ... panicky? She looks like she's saying, "TAKE THE PHOTO! TAKE IT! A BEAR TRAP IS CLAMPED AROUND MY ANKLE!"?

These are attractive people. They really are. I've seen them. Their dolls, priced at $159.95 for the set, do not really do them justice. Shades of their commemorative coins, which ... didn't, either.
