The female doll made by Mattel Inc is dressed in Presley’s “American Eagle” jumpsuit, which features colorful 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.
