There is also a Soriee Barbie Ornament available to Keepsake Ornament Club members – although it seems a little steep to me, with a $25 price tag. However, the Ornament Club exclusives usually do retain or gain value on the secondary market.

Marie Antoinette Barbie Follow Me on Pinterest This Limited Edition Marie Antoinette Barbie from 2003, the Women of Royalty Series, was the highest price collectible Barbie sold on eBay over the last 30 days.

The doll sold with a “Buy It Now” of $900 (and free shipping!) with this item description:

“Carrying a handcrafted porcelain pair of roses, Barbie® doll is the height of royalty as Marie Antoinette who became the Queen of France when her husband was crowned King Louis XVI in the 18th century. She wears a regal blue gown and matching bodice that is embellished with touches of golden lace. Draped with golden fringe, the generous layers of her extravagant gown are decorated with golden tassels and hide her full-length pantaloons and the blue satin ribbons on her shoes. A matching hat topped with feathers completes her ensemble. She wears an extravagant rhinestone necklace that complements her dramatic ensemble.”

Follow Me on Pinterest The second higest priced collectible Barbie sold over the last 30 days was this I Love Lucy Ethel Mertz as Santa Claus Doll. It was a 2007 Platinum Edition and sold with a $700 “Buy It Now” and this description:

“The Christmas Show, also known as Jingle Bells, first aired on Christmas Eve, 1956, and what better way to conjure both the holiday spirit and fond TV memories than Ethel Mertz dressed as Santa Claus? Based on the lovably loyal sidekick from the revered series, I Love Lucy, this is the first-ever solo Ethel Mertz doll released by Mattel. This fun Platinum Label™ beauty is based on the episode that featured flashbacks woven with newer Christmas-themed footage, in which all four main characters — Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, plus best pals Fred and Ethel Mertz — dressed as Santa Claus, only to be surprised by a visit from the real thing!”

Several other Ethel as Santa dolls were sold in the $600 to $700 price range.

Hello Kitty Barbie Doll (with Vintage Steffie Face Sculpt)

Hello Kitty Barbie

Have you seen the Hello Kitty Barbie Doll? Mattel used the vintage Steffie face mold for her (1971 Steffie as Miss America is pictured above) and gave her updated cat eyes! This is a 2007 pink box release that is selling for bargain prices on eBay.

Although it was released as a “play doll”, I think this is a GREAT collectible Barbie, for both Barbie & Hello Kitty collectors alike! I LOVE Barbie’s Hello Kitty necklace & purse!! (And the Steffie face is still stunning!)

Here is what Mattel has to say about Hello Kitty Barbie: “There’s something perpetually trendy about Hello Kitty, the globally renowned icon that’s embraced by kids and fashionistas alike. And who better to keep fingers on the fun fashion pulse than Barbie doll? Our favorite style maven adds whimsy to dark “denim” jeans and a black and white top through flirty Hello Kitty accessories — in pink, of course! From the hip white jacket and bold pink belt to the hat, necklace and super-cute bag, Barbie doll displays the Hello Kitty logo everywhere, with pride. And why not? When fashion and fun collide, it’s always a fabulous affair”.
