Tan-nut mom’s a doll
Only in New Jersey can you become an action figure by sitting in a tanning salon.
A Connecticut company is selling a doll modeled after Patricia Krentcil, who became a media celebrity after she was charged with allowing her then-5-year-old daughter, Anna, to sit under ultraviolet lights.
Emil Vicale, president of HeroBuilders, said everyone has friends into tanning “and we thought it was a very funny thing to do.’’
The figure, blond with an orange face, sells for $29.95.
The “tanorexic’’ Krentcil did not respond last night to requests for comment.
