Holiday Barbie Dolls Are A Beautiful Gift Tradition

Collectible Barbies - Holiday Barbie 2017Every 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.

This year the Holiday Barbies will be the star of the show!  Her gorgeous red metallic dress is adorned with a very unique gem encrusted star.   The dress is gathered at the waist, then flares into a wide and full split skirt, which accentuates Barbies perfect figure. She certainly makes a stunning presentation.  Of course, the outfits are accessorized with dangling earrings and gold shoes that compliment her beautiful gown.

Holiday Barbie Dolls for 2016

In 2016, the Barbie’s are dressed 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.

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!

Holiday Barbie Dolls

The annual Holiday Barbie Dolls are always stunningly gorgeous, but I think that is true for all Barbie dolls.  Their clothes, their hair styles, their jewelry, even their nails are always styled and manicured to perfection.  Annual Holiday Barbies really do make the perfect holiday collectible for girls and collectors who never get to old to love a new Barbie.

    So many Barbies, so little time!

  2. Where are all the other past barbies? Why stop there why not show ALL of the ones that were ever made?
    I have the very first one and last I heard (which was years ago) it was worth at least a thousand dollars.

    I just forget what year they started (2000? or earlier)

      Hi Kim,

      First, let me thank you for taking the time to comment. To answer your question, I actually struggled with how far to go back. I finally settled on 10 years, which is now up to 12 years due to the age of the article, simply because a lot of the older dolls are either not available for purchase or would not be new in box.

      I believe the first Holiday Barbie was actually released in 1988, but I will admit, I am only a collector, not an expert. Very, very cool that you have such an awesome collector doll!

    Having raised boys, I haven’t held a Barbie doll in years. I certainly can understand why adults collect Barbies, though, especially these gorgeous Holiday Barbies. Wow, love the gorgeous dresses! Maybe the upcoming grand will be a girl!
