: when the dolls hit the shelves

: When commenting on the popularity of some celebrities, someone says that,
: "When the dolls hit the shelves, their fifteen minutes of fame are over."

: What does this sentence mean?

"Celebrity dolls" like these: http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm?link_id=13816

When an entertainer, or whatever, is so popular that he or she gets a celebrity doll, there will be a backlash. People will get tired of seeing that person and go on to the next big thing.

: Thanks!
