Holiday Barbie Doll is great for girls and collectors. View larger
Celebrate the holiday season in style with the Barbie Collector 2011 Holiday Doll. Dressed in an opulent emerald gown featuring elegant gold embroidery, Barbie is ready for holiday balls and festivities. Ideal for the adult collector, but suitable for children six and up, this special-occasion Barbie's fabulous dress and accessories will give your collection a festive touch.
Elegant and Contemporary Look for Holiday 2011
This glamorous Barbie is ready to attend the winter ball in her floor-length emerald gown with slim golden lame underskirt, intricate gold embroidery, and sparkling jewel accents. The gown features a strapless bodice with a stylish, one-shoulder wrap. Completing the look are gold open-toed heels, glamorous gold chandelier earrings, and sparkly gold eye shadow. Barbie's festive ensemble features dazzling detail--elegantly styled long golden curls, flawless makeup, and an impeccable manicure.
An Ideal Holiday Doll for Barbie Lovers and Collectors
Barbie's packaging makes her an ideal collectable. With the elegant ballroom backdrop and Barbie's photo-worthy pose, the entire package attracts the eye and imagination. The removable cardboard prop beneath her skirt keeps her dress round and voluminous. Our testers noted that this Barbie does not include a display stand, so collectors will want to keep her in the box to preserve her look. If you are giving this as a present for a younger child to display out of the box, we suggest purchasing a separate Barbie doll-sized stand.
Out of the box, our testers found that this Barbie may be challenging as a toy for young children. The position of her arms, which are not straight as most Barbies' arms, may make her hard to maneuver. In addition, her hair is heavily gelled to keep her curls in place and is not really suitable for brushing or playing with.
