What It Is

Ballet Wishes Barbie, the 2017 edition, is dressed in a white leotard featuring a printed bodice with pink and gold glitter details, a pale pink tutu with a sparkly design on the top layer, white tights, and lace-up ballet slippers. The doll's brown hair is styled in a low pony tail with a white head piece, and rose gold tiara.  An annual favorite amongst Barbie collectors, and ballerinas of all ages, the latest edition of Ballet Wishes Barbie features articulated ballet arms for posing in various dance positions. Part of the Pink Label Collection, which is targeted to beginner doll collectors ages 6 and up, it also comes with a doll stand, and a certificate of authenticity. Collectors may choose to keep the doll in the box, which has a whimsical leaf design in the background, while younger children may want to take it out of the box for imaginative play.
