Barbie is celebrating the "King of Rock and Roll", Elvis Presley, with a collectible doll.

The female doll made by Mattel Inc is dressed in Presley's "American Eagle" jumpsuit, which features colourful rhinestones, a cape and a red scarf. Presley wore the jumpsuit during numerous concert appearances.

Elvis' first RCA single, Heartbreak Hotel, was released in 1956 and became the first Elvis single to sell over 1 million copies, followed by his first album, Elvis Presley, which went to No 1 on Billboard's pop album chart.

In 1973 Elvis made television and entertainment history with his Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite. It was the first, worldwide live satellite broadcast of a concert and seen in about 40 countries by 1 billion to 1.5 billion people.

Presley died Aug 16, 1977 at his Graceland home in Memphis, Tennessee.
