Every year Mattel makes a new Holiday Barbie doll. For decades, I have purchased the new dolls for my own Barbie collection. It has become part of our holiday tradition. Each year, I look forward to the annual release of the new Holiday Barbie doll. I am always excited to see her holiday dress for the current season. Barbie truly has the most beautiful clothes, especially for Christmas!
For years, we purchased the new Holiday Barbie for our daughter. I remember a few years when finding the Holiday Barbie was not an easy task. Now, with online stores, you can almost insure getting one of these sought after dolls, as long as you begin your search before Christmas Eve.
2016 Holiday Barbie
This year the Barbie’s are dresses in gowns that best compliment their hair color and skin tone. Choose your favorite, or buy one of each to complete your own Holiday Barbie Collection for 2016.
Each dress has a sparkly gown with a detached snowflake bodice. Take a close look at the pictures below. You will note that even the bodies are different in color, yet they are each quite beautiful. The snow-globe packaging has been specially designed to add to the illusion of a beautiful winter scene.
2015 Holiday Barbie
The 2015 Holiday Barbie is a real beauty dressed in her tiered ruffle front garnet colored gown with a silver leaf trimmed bodice. Accented with an insect panel of shiny silver foil brocade selected to compliment the bodice trim and complete the overall red and silver design.
As always, Barbie is dressed in the most current fashion accessories with her flirty dangle earrings which are beautifully highlighted in her glorious long loose curl hairstyle.
2014 Holiday Barbie
The 2014 Holiday Barbie is decked out in red with gold accents. Like the precious metal, she would surely be a treasured gift for any little girl or Barbie collector.
2013 Holiday Barbie
The 2013 Holiday Barbie is dressed all in white with snowflake accents. I have heard that most often the contestant dressed in white is the one crowned each year in the Miss. America pageant. Even through I have seen that very thing happen, I am not yet sure if that is a myth or true that the white somehow denotes the winner in advance. But, I do know this, Barbie is a beautiful choice to give for Christmas.
A Barbie for Everyone
One of the things I love the most about the Holiday Barbies is that they make one for blondes, brunettes, redhead as well as the raven hair beauties. Everyone has a particular favorite, usually it is the doll that has their own hair color. No matter which you prefer, either of the hair colors are equally beautiful!
