The 2008 Holiday Barbie shimmers in a silvery creation designed to resemble a snowflake. Her chandelier earrings add the perfect elegant yet festive touch to the 20th anniversary Holiday Barbie. Barbie collectors and girls ages 6 and up alike will appreciate the beauty of this doll, with her thick lashes, painted red lips, extravagantly curled blonde hair, and a stand so she can be displayed and admired by all.

What We Think

Fun Factor:

Durability:

(what this means)


The Good: Elegant, shimmery, snowflake-themed gown is both festive and stylish

The Bad: Shoes not as elegant as the dress

In a Nutshell: Fans and collectors of Holiday Barbies will be proud to add this Barbie to their collection
At a Glance

Ages: 6 and up
Barbie Shines for the Holiday Season
This is essentially the same, sturdy Barbie we all know and love, but she's beautifully decked out for the holidays. The only assembly required is putting her stand together. Though Barbie's gown looks delicate, with it's gauzy, snowflake-embroidered bodice and silver skirt, the material is tough and durable. Her long, dangly earrings, however, could see some damage during over-enthusiastic play with small hands. But they're removable, so you can take them out if you think your girl might lose or break them.

Living in a Winter Wonderland
The holiday Barbies are all about wintry elegance and style, and the 2008 doll is no exception. Barbie's sophisticated holiday hairdo cascades down her back in a mass of curls tied slightly to the side. The sheer bodice of her gown--the same one she wears in the "Barbie in a Christmas Carol" DVD-- is embroidered with shimmery snowflakes that match the silver of the tiered, pleated skirt.

A gauzy sash wraps around her waist and floats down the front of the gown. White slingback heels complete Holiday Barbie's breathtaking ensemble. For those who like to keep Barbie in her packaging, the 2008 design doesn't disappoint: a red foil background is decorated with ornaments and 3-D snowflakes suspended in midair.

Little Touches Make Barbie Fabulous
We love the little touches on this Holiday Barbie, like the painted red nails that match her lipstick, the ultra-thick lashes, and the drop earrings that dangle down past her shoulders. We also like the snowflakes that shimmer lightly on her dress as if they've just fallen from the sky. Her right arm is cocked permanently at the elbow so it looks like she's waving. You can also turn this arm so her hand is on her hip.

We could imagine however, that little girls might wish to bend the elbow into a normal position from time to time. And while Barbie's holiday gown manages to be both stunning and durable, her shoes are functional white plastic that don't really live up to the rest of the outfit (plus they're hard to put on). Fortunately, the shoes are hidden by the long dress. Overall, we think Barbie collectors and little girls alike will be thrilled to add this cooly fabulous 2008 Holiday Barbie to their collection.

I do recommend this for a collector, I do not recommend it for a child. First the dress cannot be shared with any modern barbie- it is too narrow, it does fit vintage barbies. The dress is NOT at all durable, in fact I am glueing it back together as I type. This Barbie is hard to dress for a child because of its bent arm. This is a beautiful Barbie, but being hard to dress and the fabric not lasting 7 days it is disappointing. I wish this was not sold by the toys and not marketed as a toy.

Happy New Year everyone..OK,I purchase Holiday Barbie for my daughter every year.Without giving up my age(NO way)..I will tell you that she collects them.There is no dress up,playin with the hair,we are way past that.The doll is gorgeous for collecting.
If my daughter were 6,just by looking at the doll.. I'd know its not for changing clothes,or any of that little girl play stuff.So buy it..admire it,just keep it in the box, wait till your child is old enough not to want to tear it apart and understand to appreciate her for her beauty. ..Like a handkerchief,for showing..not for blowing!I want to thank Amazon again for offering it at almost half store price,and sending the order so quickly.

I got this doll for Christmas. I am 9 years old and I take extra special care for this doll. I will start with the very few things that aren't that good about this doll.

1.Her hair is very fragile. But that can be fixed with some hardening hair spray. lift up each curl, making sure each one gets share:)

2. I recommended this for mature 8+. Her hair is a handful and if somebody under the age I put, they might want to take the doll's dress off, play with her hair or accidentally mess her up.

OK, that's all! Now for the good things!

She's very realistic, more realistic then the normal barbie I would say! Her dress and hair is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! her feet are slightly more large then the plain barbie, not too big though. Her nails are painted red. She's very pretty to look at. Worth every penny!

I ordered this for my daughter not as a collectible but as a Barbie that she can play with. She loves the Barbie because of the hair, earrings and dress. My only complaint is that the one arm that's bent doesn't 'un'bend. Again, for most folks that are buying as a collectible, no big deal, but for a little girl that wants to change the clothes and such, the bent arm poses a problem.

This is a very beautiful Barbie doll that any little girl would love. I'd rather save it for displaying rather than playing with since it's so beautiful.

I bought this doll for a friends little girl. Both her girls collect Barbie's so each year I look for special ones and I get a different one for each . Arrived on time (LOVE Amazon shipping) and packaged very nicely.
