Holiday Barbie 2012 Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The annual holiday Barbie is one of the most hotly anticipated Barbie dolls every year. Each year the Barbie designers knock themselves out coming up with the extraordinary look that's classic, holiday-inspired, and gives a nod to current fashion trends. The Holiday Barbie 2012 doll wears a holiday red gown of satin jacquard and tulle. This classic silhouette and color will remind fashion fans of Oscar de la Renta. The gown is finished off with a super-sized bow that we've seen in 2012 on runways and red carpets from Dior, Versace, and even Juicy Couture. Both elegant and whimsical, it's the perfect touch to wrap up yet another flawless holiday look. Holiday Barbie 2012 is available in blonde, brunette, and African-American versions. The doll includes a display stand.

Is It Fun?

Whether you open up the doll or keep it in its package, this is a stunning edition to a holiday Barbie collection or a great way to begin one.

Who It’s For

Holiday Barbie 2012 is part of the pink label Barbie collector series that's appropriate for collectors ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The brunette doll is available exclusively at Kmart.

These dolls sell out every year. Buy this early in the season if you want it.

Because this is a collectible doll, most collectors will choose to keep it in the box. But because the dolls are targeted to Barbie collectors of all ages, younger kids may want to take the doll out of the box and display it or play with it.
