Today I’d like to show you now my Holiday Barbie Collection. She contains the first 10 Happy Holidays Barbie dolls from 1988 -1998, the Millennium Holiday Barbie dolls and continues from 2001 to 2011. The only dolls missing are the Happy Holidays Barbie 1997 (blonde hair), the Holiday Visions Barbie doll from 2003 and the Holiday 2004 Barbie doll in burgundy dress(Sears exclusive).
At my first convention visit in Hamburg, Germany last May I bought the Chinese New Year 2009 doll. I had seen her before but she was not available for a good price before. She was especially made for the asian market. In Germany she was hard to find. I didn’t expect her to be available on a convention. I’m sorry for the pics but the box reflected the light in such a bad way that there was merely chance to take good pics. I didn’t want to debox her for the occasion of taking pictures.
For the last x-mas I got the Golden Legacy Barbie as x-mas present from my parents. Since I wanted her for my collection I was happy when she arrived several days before x-mas. I think she’s one of the best Bob Mackie dolls ever. So here a a few pics of her.
Her sisters will follow in the coming weeks.
Now I want you to show several of my Collector Barbie dolls. You will see two different series , the “Spirit series” exclusively made for Toys’r’us and the Classical Goddess series. Both were released in the beginning of this decade. I bought my Goddess series in 2005 and the other Barbie dolls in 2009 except the Spirit of the water. She was also bought in 2005.
