Barbie Signature 2022 Holiday Barbie Doll (Blonde Hair), 6 Years and Up., HBY03
About this deal
They’re built for display only as the company expects them to join the holiday décor hence their fixed features. The Holiday Barbie typically has specific poses and permanent accessories. So, please don’t force them off. 10 Most Valuable Holiday Barbies There are four Box grades – Mint, Never Removed, Damaged, and Removed. Mint in Box (MIB) Holiday Barbies have everything intact, including the box’s shape, accessories, and doll.
The value is in the box. It’s one thing to have a doll still intact – hair laid, dress freshly pressed – but to have it in its box is even better. These boxes have terms to describe their conditions among the Holiday Barbie collectors. The 1995 Happy Holidays Barbie Doll has a bright smile as big as her hair. Her dress has Holly prints and motifs all over, and it couldn’t be more obvious that she’s a festive doll. Holiday Barbie® Doll embodies the spirit of the season in a vibrant, red gown inspired by the poinsettia, a symbol of good will and community spirit.Barbie dolls originated from a mother’s interest in bringing joy to her daughter. Ruth decided playing with paper dolls wasn’t enough after observing her daughter Barbara’s love for them. Barbie is glamorous in a white ballgown with exaggerated fur sleeves and a sheer organza overskirt with fur hemming. She comes with a keepsake snowflake attached to the top left corner of her box.
Naturally, you’d expect the older Holiday Barbies to carry higher values, and you’re right. Considering the age, the chances of finding an NRFB or MIB are slim, and if you do find them, you should be ready to pay a pretty penny in exchange. The least valuable are the Holiday Barbie dolls sold without boxes. They’re often preowned, so they’ll likely miss a few accessories and need some bolstering.

In 1999, Mattel Christened its Barbie Doll, the Millennium Princess, in honor of the new Millennium. Then it changed to Celebration Series between 2000 and 2002. The 2003 model’s name is Winter Fantasy. In line with the growing consciousness on representation, Mattel designs three skin tones and hair colors for each Holiday Barbie though the physique takes on the original statuesque style. Even though Holiday Barbies came only once a year, they’re not all rare since they were mass-produced. Of all the exclusive Holiday Barbies, the 1988 – 1995 models are ultra-rare because they’re the original models, and it’s been a while since they first hit the market. Final NoteWhile the Celebration Barbie welcomed the new Millennium, it couldn’t beat the anticipation of the Millennium Princess. The royal blue and silver-dressed doll wears a silver tiara and comes bearing an ornament.
