EL PASO - We told you earlier this week that Customs and Border Protection Officers confiscated thousands of fake Barbie dolls at an El Paso port of entry.
We asked Mattel what would happen to the counterfeit dolls and if they would donate them..
Turns out Mattel is not sure if the toys meet safety standards and are not sure what would happen to the dolls.
Officers believe importers paid more that $30,000 for the dolls, and that they can be sold for 8 to 10 times that amount.
