EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Barbie celebrates the artistic impact of the late Keith Haring through the brand new Barbie x Keith Haring Doll. Taking inspiration from artist Haring's work, this doll features a graffiti art style on her 1990s-inspired outfit. This doll's graphic ensemble starts with an off-the-shoulder black sweatshirt with Haring's "Radiant Baby" figure on it over a blue mesh tank top. On the doll's cropped pink pants, you'll find an all-over pattern of Haring's dancing figures. The doll's white boots feature more of Haring's figures, and the doll accessorizes with colorful bracelets, a silver boombox graphic tote bag, silver "Radiant Baby" hoop earrings, and red sunglasses. Even the packaging for this doll features Haring's art work, and collectors will especially like the three-dimensional backdrop behind the doll. The doll includes a doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity.

Is It Fun?

The style of this doll will definitely appeal to older Barbie fans who remember Haring's groundbreaking work. It's a great pairing of Barbie style and contemporary art that creates a wonderful tribute to Haring.
