4.0 out of 5 stars Life is short-- play hard!, February 10, 2009
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Barbie: Collector Juicy Couture Giftset - Gold Label (Toy)
I'm not sure what Juicy Couture means; I've seen the brand shopping in high-end department stores and on the backsides of rich kids hanging around in the malls, so I'm sure it's some kind of darwinian offshoot of Tommy Hilfiger, Baby Phat and other luxury brands that came before them. To be fair, it's high-quality stuff, but until now I haven't been able to justify the expense of anything from this brand, no matter how "juicy" it is. However, now that they've branched out into Barbie, they're in my territory, and so I've added this set to my collection.

This set is a vast improvement over the first clownish-looking pair in brightly colored jogging suits. The dresses and jewelry are much more appropriate to the theme and the price point, and and it's all very top-notch, as you would expect JC to be. These dolls are a nightmare to debox and unless you want to display them in a certain way, I would suggest you leave them NRFB.

But if you do want to play with them, don't be afraid of them. You only get one life and you only get so much time, and if ripping those dolls out and playing with them is how you enjoy them, I say go for it. In fact, the black dress on the blonde is known to stain the doll, so sometimes taking something out to play with it can be a good thing.

Life is short. Play hard-- whether the boxes can stand it or not. :-)They're YOUR dolls. Play with them they way YOU want to play.

This collector Barbie set is one of the most fun we own. (My young daughters and I own a communal doll collection, and yes, we do debox all of our dolls, and they see some gentle play.) Because the box is so incredibly lovely, it was difficult to decide to debox, but both dolls are simply too pretty to leave in their boxes.

A word to the wise: This set is from 2008, and they are really a pain to debox. Their hair is especially difficult. However, if you use care, you should be able to get them out without any problems. We were able to. The box, however, has seen better days.

The two dolls are likenesses of the founders of the clothing line Juicy Couture, Pamela Skaist-Levy (the blonde, wearing the "P" charm on her necklace), and Gela Nash-Taylor (frosted brunette with the "G" charm on her necklace). I'm familiar with the clothing line, but not the designers, so I'm not sure how good of likenesses they are. I do, however, love these dolls. Both have lovely face paint (I posted close-up photos in the gallery)--very neutral and shimmery. And their accessories include lots of jewelry: bracelets, rings and earrings. Their shoes do not stay on if you remove the plastic ties from the packaging, however.

The dresses are basted on the dolls (they are not supposed to be removable). Both are made from chiffon and they are a very nice quality. Each "fur" coat includes matching black or taupe lining, which I think is a nice detail.

The set also includes a miniature perfume bottle, which my daughters really enjoy. Also, the dolls' hair was a little gelled, but not badly. The dolls are on model muse bodies, I believe (their knees do not bend); so be aware of this if you plan to give this set as a gift to a younger collector.

All in all, it's a great set and sold out most places. I notice Amazon has an excellent price--it originally retailed for $110.

I bought this for my niece as valentine's day gift. She loves anything "Juicy Courture". It arrived in a prompt and timely manner and was packaged very nicely. I would recommend this vendor as a reputable dealer with quality products.

I just received the Juicy Couture Dolls today, and they are absolutely beautiful and look exactly like how they are supposed to look. They are in great condition and the box they are in is in great condition too. I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend the vendor to anyone interested in buying Barbie Collectibles.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for the true collector, September 23, 2008
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Barbie: Collector Juicy Couture Giftset - Gold Label (Toy)
I love this set! The dolls are made in the likeness of Juicy Couture designers Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor (not sure which doll is who, though). The dolls have very nice clothing and a lot of accesories.

This is a gold label set, so once they've run out, they're gone.

Also, PLEASE DO NOT BUY THESE DOLLS TO PLAY WITH THEM. They are intended for collectors and it would be a shame to buy these beautiful dolls and for them to end up getting destroyed..
