Tim Gunn Collection for Barbie Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Tim Gunn is one of the hosts of Project Runway and one of the foremost arbiters of fashion today. So it makes complete sense for him to team up with Barbie, one of the all-time fashion icons, to create an outstanding collectible doll collection. The first two dolls in the new Tim Gunn Collection for Barbie are dressed in classic separates with great accessories. Accessory packs for the dolls are sold separately.

Is It Fun?

Gunn's classic phrase is "Make it work" and he does. Gunn takes his own advice from the workroom and applies it to these stylishly dressed Barbie dolls. Project Runway fans will love these Tim Gunn-designed dolls, and Barbie collector fans will like the chic look of the dolls.

Who It’s For

These dolls are part of the pink label of the Barbie Collector series and are for ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

We left our dolls in the boxes, which double as terrific display cases.

These really are more for the collector than play dolls, and they're a great way to start a doll collection.
