With the release of last year’s Barbie Christmas Ornaments, many of us were sad when Hallmark announced that they would no longer be making Barbie ornaments after 2012. In the spring, Mattel announced they had signed a licensing agreement with American Greetings to produce the ornaments. They are now due to be released at the end of August. I was excited when I found this sneak peek and couldn’t wait to share it with you! There will be eight ornaments this year, this year’s Holiday Barbies (blonde and African-American versions) , the remaining six are based on older dolls. It looks as if we are getting our fist Superstar Barbie ornament!
Here it is almost Halloween and we haven’t talked about 2011 Holiday Barbie & Hallmark Ornaments yet! Apologies for slipping down on the job…
This years Holiday Barbie is so gorgeous – it was designed by Robert Best and I think it is one of the most elegant and sophisticated Holiday Dolls to date. I also realized that this is the 24th year that Mattel has done a Holiday Barbie and it makes me excited hoping there is something wonderful planned for next year’s 25th Anniversary doll!
Valentine Barbie Dolls are fun and relatively inexpensive to collect. The first official Valentine Barbie was the B Mine, released in 1993. There have been both pink box/grocery store Valentine’s dolls, as well as Target and Hallmark exclusives.
