What It Is

The 2014 Holiday Barbie is the picture of glamour in red and gold. The doll wears a full-skirted gown that looks like patterned silk over a lace underskirt with a lace-trimmed bodice tied up like a perfect gift with a gold-colored ribbon. Her oversized gold-toned necklace is designed to look like poinsettias and holly leaves. In a truly festive holiday style, Barbie wears matching red pumps. The doll also comes with a doll stand for easy display.

Is It Fun?

When it comes to fashion, the watch-word this year is "elegance." The Metropolitan Museum of Art set the stage with its retrospective on famed ballgown designer Charles James, America's first couturier. And, of course, the culture is following suit. That, of course, includes Barbie, another American fashion original. Barbie's understated glamour is perfect for this holiday season, a beautiful addition to any Barbie collection, and the ideal gift for the Barbie fan.

Who It’s For

The 2014 Holiday Barbie is for ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Because this is a collectible doll, most collectors will choose to keep it in the box. But because the dolls are targeted to young Barbie fans and collectors, kids may want to take the doll out of the box and display it or play with it.
