It’s the big day! After months of rehearsals, with patient coaching by instructors and the support of loving family members, the evening of the ballet dance recital has arrived. A bouquet of roses and the gift of a Ballet Wishes® Barbie® Doll is the perfect way to celebrate your ballerina’s achievement!
Barbie® doll has been a fan of the ballet for years, with dozens of ballet outfits in her fashion history, and interpretations of costumes from The Nutcracker and Swan Lake. For this series of dolls, though, the inspiration comes from the most special dancers of all – young girls dreaming and learning, doing their best and having so much fun!
The 2014 Ballet Wishes® Barbie® Doll is the second special occasion ballet doll created just for the ballerina in your life. Last year’s dancer stole the show and sold out of our online shop! This month, the curtain rises and a new doll takes to the stage.
Barbie® doll shines, thanks to a costume that sparkles in the spotlight. She wears a pale pink tutu decorated with embroidered trim featuring tiny rosettes. Her special pointe shoes with matching pink crisscrossing ribbons help her to perform graceful pirouettes and dance with lightness and grace.
She’s a perfect beauty, whether you’re thinking of your daughter, granddaughter, or niece, or you have you own heart and collection in mind. The 2014 Ballet Wishes Barbie Doll is waiting for you right now in the online shop. Get her today!
At the stroke of midnight, she arrives in all her dark glory to an opulent palazzo overlooking the Grand Canal, where guests at a masquerade ball revel in gothic grandeur. Her entrance stuns the spirited crowd—they gaze at her in silence. Venetian Muse™ Barbie®!
Only the trancelike melody of a flute accompanies the mysterious beauty as she makes her way through the gilded ballroom. Her presence conjures worlds of luxury and elegance, for she is an enchantress—a queen summoned from magical realms.
Venetian Muse™ Barbie® Doll, the inspiration for myriad wondrous dreams, wears a resplendent ebony satin gown featuring a magnificent front panel embossed with ornamental gold filigree and silver sparkles.
She captivates her audience—a regal vision, illuminated by a glorious crown embellished with glittering beads and an extravagant fan of black tulle.
Her intricate headdress reflects the brilliant golden sunburst jewelry on her fitted bodice, casting rays of light upon her transfixed admirers. Enthralled, they await the hour of revelation.
She raises her hand, veiled in seductive shadowy net, as an indication she will now reveal her alabaster visage. In a show of respect, a haunting aria dramatizes the heralded moment.
Time stands still as she draws back the graceful wand of her ornate gold and polished ivory mask.
Her subjects are mesmerized by the hypnotic power of her azure-hued eyes, defined by arched brows and vibrant vermillion lips. She is a true goddess, reminiscent of the divine muses of Roman mythos.
The ladies in waiting and their men bow in appreciation, gratified for the gift she has bestowed upon them. Her glow has awakened their senses and ignited their artistry. Enlightened, they’re ready to take flight, blessed by the exquisite Venetian Muse™—their secret Queen of the Night.

It’s the eighth largest country in the world, with 40 million people and vast climatic extremes. Its capital is often called the “Paris of South America.” And for the first time, it finally has a Barbie® doll to call its own.
Say “¡Hola!” to Argentina Barbie Doll, one of four new dolls to join the historic Dolls of the World® Collection. Since 1980, this series has spanned the globe, featuring the cultural heritage of six continents and traditional influences on modern style.
In addition to breaking ground with Argentina Barbie, the 2012 line charts new territory in other ways, too. The overall design theme is “more whimsical and heavily inspired by classic illustrated travelogues,” says designer Linda Kyaw. With this fresh direction, Linda and the rest of the team hope the dolls appeal to both long-time fans as well as the next generation of doll collectors.
Classic countries have made the leap to the new-look line, represented by China Barbie® Doll and Ireland Barbie® Doll. The line also heads “Down Under” for the first time in nearly 20 years with Australia Barbie® Doll, thanks to popular demand within the collector community.
But the real star of the line is the newcomer, Argentina Barbie! Ready to cut a rug in her dramatic single-shouldered charmeuse tango dress, she also features quiet little fashion touches made with the entire 2012 line in mind. “We wanted to offer variety in every way possible, from the selection of the countries down to the hair colors for each doll,” Linda notes, adding that “sometimes, it’s the subtle elements that make a doll memorable!” For Argentina Barbie, that element is the rose anklet, which gives “an unexpected sweetness to her outfit.”
Argentina Barbie and the rest of the 2012 Dolls of the World also come in brand-new collectible packaging, designed to evoke the iconic travel trunk. For de-boxers, it offers a way to add travel keepsakes, and for NRFB (“never removed from box”) collectors, it’s a colorful new way to display your dolls.
The 2012 Dolls of the World have come from four corners of the earth into the online shop, and it’s time for them to make the last leg of their journey – home to you, or into the arms of friends and family with a passion for Barbie and a desire to look beyond the horizon. Shop the collection now!
Living life joyously and always fashionably. Modeling the perfect look and that unstoppable attitude in any situation. That’s The Barbie Look® Collection what makes so stunning!
The collection kicked off in 2013 with the City Shopper™ dolls, each dressed to impress while exploring the hottest fashion-forward boutiques. Then came the Red Carpet™ dolls of 2014, with signature looks for any gala event.
For 2015, the bright lights of the big city and glamorous evening attire conspire to create the City Shine™ doll series, featuring four dolls that rank among designer Bill Greening’s most beautiful style setters!
“Bronze Dress” wears a dramatic one-shoulder piece, with bold earrings and strappy heels. “Silver Dress” wraps and shimmers, with an asymmetric hemline and monochromatic accessories. “Lace Dress” is metallic, long-sleeved, and hypnotically patterned. “Gold Dress” is cocktail-party perfect, and any of these dresses could be seen at an exquisite party in a penthouse suite with sweeping views of lit-up cityscapes.
The 2015 Barbie Look® Collection arrived early in the online shop, and they each come with matching accessories including clutch purses, bracelets, earrings, and of course, shoes to die for. Get them all for your own fabulous collection now!

Ready? OKAY!! Clap your hands and give a cheer — the peppiest dolls of the year are here! We’re celebrating the debut of four new University-themed Barbie Dolls, a series that pays tribute to some of the most celebrated colleges across the U.S.
These delightful, energetically posed cheerleaders display tons of campus pride and team spirit. They’re rallying crowds for the LSU Tigers, Auburn Tigers, Arkansas Razorbacks, and Alabama Crimson Tide. Rah, rah, rah!
Each doll wears a super-cute cheerleading outfit representing her school’s signature colors and shapes. Louisiana State University Barbie Doll loves Purple and lives Gold in her “Geaux Tigers®” uniform. Auburn University Barbie Doll sports an auburn ’do (of course!) in support of the Orange and Blue. University of Arkansas Barbie Doll wins style points with Cardinal and White, while University of Alabama Barbie Doll kicks up her heels in White with Crimson accents.
Available in Caucasian and African-American versions, the dolls are accessorized with “ready-to-cheer” sneakers, colorful pom-poms, and a finishing hair bow. Plus, in a show of spirited devotion to collectors, the Barbie team has included a special design touch. “We’ve brought back some face sculpts that haven’t been used in awhile,” explains designer Linda Kyaw, “a small detail that most collectors can appreciate.”
Each cheerleader also comes with her school’s fight song lyrics printed right on the package. So whether you’re rooting for the Tigers, Hogs, or Tide, you too can loudly and proudly raise your voice — and cheer your team to victory!
You don’t have to fight, fight, fight to score the University-themed Barbie Dolls. The entire squad is available now in the online shop — so go, go, go! Perfect for collectors, the dolls also make great gifts for students, alumni, team fans, and anyone else who wants to put a handspring in their step. As Linda enthuses, “The campus spirit cheerleaders bring a vibrant flash of college spirit to the Collector Line!”
They’re winners indeed. Yay, Barbie team!
The Spring 2012 Barbie® Collector line included a breath of fresh air with the newly minted Dolls of the World® Collection. China and Ireland were represented in nods to popular entries in the remarkable 30-year history of the collection. Australia made a long-awaited return, and Argentina was represented for the first time.
The styles, designed to delight experienced and newer collectors alike, brought a carefree essence to the globetrotting series. It also created a silent challenge – where would Dolls of the World go next, with this classic travelogue inspired motif?
Heading into the new line, Linda says she found the process “more efficient, but more enjoyable to work on overall. The first set of anything usually is to make an impact, the second is always to do something slightly different with the essence of the first.”
Again spanning four continents, there are “points of creative difference” for each doll, while they all still blend in smoothly with the rest of the line. They also feature the same packaging as the previous 2012 dolls, with a storage compartment for keepsakes from your travels.
“Working on a ‘travel-based’ doll line is a funny thing, because you do so much research that you inevitably feel like you’ve already set foot there,” Linda notes. “Of course ideally, I’d love to visit a new country every month and soak up all the local culture for real!”
Linda herself is planning her first trip to Mexico later this year, and hopes to go to India next. Where will the Dolls of the World take you? Go to the online shop to see more photos, and chart your own fashion voyage!
It’s here! Barbie Collector Principal Designer Bill Greening’s follow up to Barbie Basics® is The Barbie Look Collection, which debuts with two dolls, four fashions, and a wardrobe for de-boxers to “play and display” Barbie dolls.
To celebrate the launch of this new signature collection, Principal Designer Bill Greening took time out of planning for the next releases in the collection to answer a few questions for collectors and fans.
Congrats on the launch of The Barbie Look! How long have you been working on the new collection, and how does it feel now that the first dolls and accessories have debuted?
We explored a few ideas after we knew Barbie Basics® was coming to an end. So I’ve been working on it for well over a year. I’m really excited about the debut of The Barbie Look, and the early response from the Barbie Collector community has been great.
Speaking of Barbie Basics, that collection featured variations on fashion staples like LBDs, jeans, and swimwear. How does this new collection differ from Barbie Basics?
The Barbie Look, very much like Barbie Basics, is focused on having fun, playing and displaying Barbie dolls.
Barbie Basics was really about two things: The fashion staple and a variety of dolls. We then had accessory packs to plus-up the fashion staple, like how to dress up your denim for an evening look, or how to accessorize your LBD for an office look, for example.
With The Barbie Look, the focus is on a complete thematic fashion statement for Barbie. The dolls are more luxe too. They come with jewelry, rooted lashes, and little shopping bags. They’re more fashion trend focused vs. focusing on a fashion staple. It gives me a little more creative freedom with the design.
Of course the dolls are fabulous, but let's not forget the individual fashions, which are stunning! How did you choose these first four themes?
Collectors have been requesting individual fashions for a very long time. I think after a great run of Basics dolls, separate fashions are long overdue.
The idea for the fashions almost came from the origin of the collection name "The Barbie Look." It was an advertising campaign that started in the mid 60s and ran through the early 70s. It was all about getting the "Barbie Look," which to me meant quality, style, and fashion authenticity in a way only Barbie could deliver.
I wanted to make sure we still delivered on what that idea stood for. In deciding on the themes we imagined, what would be in Barbie doll's closet, what glamorous fashionable events she’d attend, and what we’d expect to see Barbie wearing at those events. Shopping, on the red carpet, poolside, golfing at the country club, and girly tea party are all places I can imagine Barbie at. Each fashion tells a story.
What are some of your favorite details about these first dolls and fashions? What came out even better than you dreamed or hoped it would?
I love the little accessories that come with the fashions. They’re so reminiscent of the early Barbie fashions of the 1960s. The movie award, the tea set, the golf clubs, the palm fan, and plate of fruit are all so detailed.
Of course this collection has to feel modern too. It's not all about nostalgia, but I think it really ties back to the DNA of the Barbie brand and our heritage. I hope our Barbie collectors see and appreciate that.
Most collectors know I’m a big fan of the Steffie face sculpt, so a Steffie with rooted lashes is heaven to me. I also love African American dolls, and I think this girl is giving some serious fashion attitude!
The addition of the Barbie Wardrobe is a fantastic touch. Tell us how that came to be a part of the collection's debut.
The idea of the closet really came from the thought of all the collectors setting up those great vignettes and displaying their collections. The De-boxers!
I think it’s a fun way to display your fave Barbie fashions and accessories. Maybe buy a few and line them up on your doll shelf, creating a scene of the ultimate Barbie closet. The closet has a trap door underneath where you can slide different wallpapers in and out. Three are provided with the closet, however I think crafty collectors will insert their own fave designs. It’s all about having fun, playing and displaying Barbie dolls.
What's next for The Barbie Look? How do you see the collection developing?
We have more dolls and fashions planned for Fall 2013, and we’re currently planning "what’s next" after that. The goal is to offer a wide variety of fashions and fashion themes. Glamour, sport, party dresses, casual wear – what one would expect to see in Barbie doll's wardrobe.
As far as dolls go, I’d like to try to roll in a variety of face sculpts as well. I hope the line has a nice run and collectors can appreciate we have heard their requests for a fashion-based Barbie line at an affordable price. I think it’s a great addition to your 2013 Barbie collection!
Will you be deboxing, dressing Barbie, and storing clothes in the new wardrobe? Let us know in the comments!
A striking new collaboration between Mattel and the Hudson’s Bay Company Collection debuts today in The Barbie™ Collection – the Hudson’s Bay® Barbie®! This fun and fashionable partnership presents a stylish, modern take on the instantly recognizable multi stripe design from the oldest company in North America. Prior to this launch, there had been four exclusive Hudson’s Bay Barbie dolls created as a series for HBC’s 325th Anniversary in 1995.
(Get Hudson’s Bay® Barbie® with free shipping through 10/11 – see below for details!*)
One of the goals of the project was to create a doll and a style that reflected a fabulously Canadian fashion sense. “Our vision was to imbue our doll with an independent, creative spirit – a spirit that resonates not only with Barbie but with our brand as well,” says Hilary Kelley, Vice President, Design, HBC Collections, Hudson’s Bay.
On this Barbie doll, the iconic Hudson's Bay multi stripe design is applied to her coat, skirt, cellphone case, and coffee mug. Even her dog Hudson wears the multi striped coat! The doll has an Aphrodite sculpt with a smoky eye and glossy natural lips applied to it. Barbie™ Collection Senior Designer Carlyle Nuera says, “The coat is fantastic; fully lined with tiny black toggles down the front. I know it doesn't get that cold in Los Angeles, but I still want one for myself!”
You can see that and more in close-up images of the doll in our online shop, where Barbie® turns up the fashion heat while wearing the aforementioned Hudson’s Bay Company multi stripe coat and matching pencil skirt, paired with a black turtleneck, knit tuque, and sassy ankle boots. She adds a few final touches with a bold watch, oversized RX glasses, and a fabulous carry bag – loaded with everything to take her from her desk to dinner with friends.
Packaged in a sleek, collectible black and gold box, the doll appears in front of an image of Hudson’s Bay’s store in downtown Toronto. She’ll be an instant classic for both fashion lovers and collectors young and old, and she’s available now in the online shop!
It's hard to believe 75 years have passed since The Wizard of Oz premiered at Grauman's Chinese Theatre! Decades later, Dorothy's adventures somewhere over the rainbow continue to delight audiences worldwide.
Not only is The Wizard of Oz back on the big screen for the first time as An IMAX 3-D Experience®, but Dorothy Gale also returns in all her fabulous 3-D glory as The Wizard of Oz™ Fantasy Glamour Dorothy Doll! In addition, Barbie® Collector is celebrating the iconic film with an exclusive 75th Anniversary Wizard of Oz™ Doll Collection!
The 1939 film took advantage of the period’s new Technicolor technology with colorful costumes and makeup, which are perfectly reproduced for this special edition gold and diamond Wizard of Oz Collection. Now, collectors can rejoice because the dolls are sculpted in vinyl to look like the film’s stars!
Fans adore Judy Garland’s wide-eyed and innocent portrayal of Dorothy. And who can forget Billie Burke’s memorable performance as the serene and graceful Glinda the Good Witch? There’s also Margaret Hamilton’s star turn as Dorothy’s nemesis, the delightfully evil Wicked Witch of the West! Character-defining accessories include Glinda’s wand, the Witch’s broom, and of course, there’s Toto, too!
Watch out Emerald City, there’s a new Dorothy setting foot on the yellow-brick road — and she’s spectacular! Fantasy has always been an integral part of the mythic Land of Oz, and the gorgeous The Wizard of Oz Fantasy Glamour Dorothy taps into that magical realm.
Inspired by the fantastical elements of L. Frank Baum’s cherished story, the glamorous doll is a modern update that recalls Dorothy’s original costume from the film.
The iconic gingham dress has transformed into an extravagant tulle and sequined gown with structural folds that create a swirling effect. Her entire ensemble appears as if it's in motion — reminiscent of the twister that transported Dorothy from Kansas to Oz!
The Wizard of Oz Fantasy Glamour Dorothy doll uses the Lara face sculpt with face paint that reflects our plucky heroine’s sense of wonder with bright blue eyes and a sweet smile. Chandelier earrings lend extra sparkle to her glossy brunette tresses, swept off her forehead and adorned with braids!
Naturally, both The Wizard of Oz Fantasy Glamour Dorothy and The Wizard of Oz Dorothy dolls come wearing those desirable ruby slippers, but you don’t have to click your heels to bring them home — all four dolls are a click away at the Barbie Collector online shop!
Summer vacation is here, which means it’s time to dive in to Season 4 of Barbie™ Life in the Dreamhouse, the web-exclusive series featuring Barbie® doll chilling in Malibu!

With shopping, hanging out, cupcakes, romance and more, this show has everything you want in summer entertainment. If you haven’t watched it yet, you’ll especially love the “reality TV” style confessionals, where Barbie® and her BFFs talk right into the camera. So much fun!
Now, if you’ve somehow missed any of the previous webisodes, don’t worry. You already know most of the cast, including Barbie® doll’s long time BFF Midge®, and it won’t take long to get up to speed on her new Malibu crew, four fabulously fashionable gal pals. In fact, all six characters have now been spun off into a series of sensational dolls, the Barbie™ Life in the Dreamhouse Collection!
These six stylish dolls include the always amazing Barbie™ Life in the Dreamhouse Barbie® Doll, the sassy Barbie™ Life in the Dreamhouse Nikki® Doll, and the boho-chic Barbie™ Life in the Dreamhouse Teresa® Doll. This summer the cast has welcomed a new character on the show with a very appropriate name, the Barbie™ Life in the Dreamhouse Summer® Doll. You’ll get to see more of her in upcoming webisodes, too!
Adding a delicious dose of drama is the Barbie™ Life in the Dreamhouse Raquelle® Doll. This beautifully bad neighbor always manages to cause some sort of trouble. Check out her evil plan to sabotage Barbie® doll’s boutique in Help Wanted. Trying to figure out which of these characters is Barbie® doll’s BFF? So are they!

One of the funniest characters from the show has to be the Barbie™ Life in the Dreamhouse Midge® Doll. Barbie® doll’s oldest friend from back in Willows, Wisconsin, she made her first appearance on the show in A Smidge of Midge, which ingeniously merged an old-fashioned 50s sitcom style with a modern webisode. Brilliant!
Make your summer better with a little drama, a little fashion, and whole lot of friendship and fun. Forget “must see TV,” check out “want to watch webisodes” of the summer… then check out the Barbie™ Life in the Dreamhouse Collection to get your favorite characters from the show!
