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.

This year's Barbie comes in a rare slim gold underskirt (rather than the usual large hemmed ball gown) with flowing green silk-like overskirt. The overskirt is decorated with gold embroidery and jewel details. Her hazel eyes with their sparkly gold eyeshadow make a nice match with the golden chandelier earrings. She wears matching gold open toed shoes under the skirt. This is definitely one of the most sophisticated looking of all the Holiday Barbies.
As with all of the recent Collector Holiday Barbies, she really isn't intended to be deboxed or played with. The doll doesn't come with a stand and her hair is heavily gelled to keep the curls in place (not really suitable for brushing or you destroy the style). As well, the back of the dress lacks the details of the front and doesn't have any of the volume when removed (recebt year Holiday Barbies (like this one) have cardboard inserts under the dresses to keep them 'fluffed out' and full in the hemline). Her dress is sewn into the box to keep a perfect display - it isn't quite as lovely when removed and without the restraints to keep it in place. She also has the model muse body - which means she isn't pivotal and can't hold any other pose. There were two very slight, barely visible pulls in the gold part of the dress on my doll. Her hair is a mess in the back.
Since the box is heavily decorated with the "arriving at the Christmas Ball" theme to match the dress, I'd recommend this for those who enjoy the entire display without wanting to debox. If you are giving this as a present for a younger child to display out of the box, you'll need to get a Barbie-sized doll stand separately.
In all, a lovely addition to the series (though I do wish they would include display stands for those of us who like to remove our Barbies from the box).
I, however, am not a collector. When I look at a doll (or any toy) I want to know if it will make a child's eyes light up with wonder. I think that this barbie has the beauty and elegance to appeal to any little girl and her dreams of being the belle of the ball. The doll's hair isn't meant to be played with, it will quickly lose it's perfect style, and her body is molded with one arm bent so that her position is fixed, but for any girl who loves dolls this barbie has all the beauty and sparkle to bring joy and delight to the imagination.
This is one of the best yet. Normally I hold on to them until Christmas, but when she saw a picture of this year's doll, she begged me to let her have it early. The hair, makeup, dress...are beautiful & there's a retro feel to the overall look. The attention to detail is impecable. A must-have, whether you're a collector or looking for a Barbie for a child.
Now that we've had it for a few weeks, our thoughts.
The barbie is beautiful. The attention to detail is marvelous. If you are a collector, it is one to add to the collection. On the other hand, getting it as a toy for kids is a bit more painful. I worry about the doll, she is just so pretty that I would hate for her to get damaged. Of course my 8 year-old-daughter just wants to play with the new, beautiful, barbie. I love the attention to detail and the gown that Barbie is wearing, but my daughter does not like the gown. It is too much for her. I would recommend this for a collector, as it was intended, but if you were looking for a barbie to play with then I would probably pick something else.
Barbie Collector Holiday Doll is a glamorous doll that features Barbie in a green and gold gown. Barbie is glamorized further with her make- up and accessories, which include earrings, gold slippers, and other items. She is a sight to behold, and that is why many will likely place this Barbie on display and not do anything else with it. She even comes in her own display box for this very purpose.
My girls like the Barbie Collector Holiday Doll, but they don't play with her the way they do other Barbie's and I am pretty sure this is due to the collector nature of this doll. With the flowing gown and accessories, she is more of a display item and even though my girls are too young to consider themselves Barbie collectors (or to even know what that means), they tend to place this Barbie off by herself, on a bedroom shelf, while they play with their more casual Barbie dolls. They still like her- just in a different way. The manufacturer released this as a collector's item, so I suppose this reaction should be expected.
Barbie Collector Holiday Doll is a glamorous doll and she follows in the footsteps of other Barbie collector holiday dolls released over the past few years. She may not induce the level of play like other Barbie dolls, but she is a nice collector's doll and most girly- girls will love her regardless.
