It’s time to cue up The Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck” or the sped-up version of Lady Gaga’s “Bloody Mary.” A new version of Wednesday Addams has taken the dance floor, and she’s ready to show her best moves.

Recently, toy company Mezco Toyz revealed its newest collectible from its Living Dead Dolls (LDD) line. The “Dancing Wednesday” doll is created from the viral dance scene in Netflix’s Wednesday, which stars Jenna Ortega as the title character.

From the Mezco Toyz website, “Wednesday is outfitted in her iconic black ruffle gown that she wears to the Nevermore Academy’s annual Rave’N dance, crown braids, and Mary Jane shoes. Her arms are in a static, bent pose allowing her to recreate her solo dance scene.”

The doll is 10 inches tall and features five points of articulation. It is packaged in a window box for display and is priced at $52.

Last December, Lady Gaga posted a TikTok video of herself recreating the famous dance scene. Ortega responded from the red carpet a few weeks later. “To see her do that [dance] now, it was kind of one of those moments where you acknowledge [that] life changes really, really fast, and it’s really crazy.”

Mezco Toyz had already revealed a Wednesday doll last year that features the character in a black and white polka-dotted dress and carrying her friendly, severed hand companion Thing on her shoulder.

“Dancing Wednesday” is available for pre-order now. It will be shipped to buyers between February and April 2024.
