Justin Bieber 'Real Hairstyle' doll freaks us out only a little bit

This is a big weekend for Justin Bieber. Not only will his 3-D movie "Never Say Never" hit theaters (along with hordes of swooning tween girls) on Friday, but a new Bieber toy -- the Justin Bieber "Real Hairstyle" doll -- will make its debut at the American International Toy Fair.

Why a new doll, you ask? What's wrong with the dolls I bought that came out right before Christmas?

"When we introduced the first series of Justin Bieber dolls right before the holidays last year, the most frequent comment we heard from fans -- besides how much they love them -- was: 'Why doesn't the doll have Justin's hairstyle that you can comb?' " said toymaker Jay Foreman.

"We heard the fans loud and clear, and we're thrilled to be able to offer them the doll they've been waiting for later this year."

You heard it here first, kids. Clear your calendar and get your brushes ready because the Bieb -- and a reasonable synthetic facsimile of his longed-for locks -- will be coming soon (August, specifically. So I'm stuck taking Barbie to the beach?) to a toy store near you.

Unanswered question that for some reason we suspect Liz Kelly knows the answer to:

Is the little doppelBieber anatomically correct?

My grammar in the first sentence back there couldn't have been more wrong if Cristina Aguilera had sung it.
