Ballet Wishes® Barbie® Doll
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!
The 2015 Birthday Wishes® Barbie® Dolls are here! And for the first time, this annual collection features a Hispanic doll in addition to the Caucasian and African-American dolls.
This is the third year for the Birthday Wishes® collection, which started as a beautiful way to share Barbie® with the special girls in your life, as they celebrate the start of a new year of excitement, growth, challenges, and opportunities to “Be Super” in everything they do!
Linda Kyaw was chosen to design the doll, and she delivered a dress that any girl would dream of wearing. For the facial sculpts, she chose the Goddess sculpt for the African-American Birthday Wishes® Barbie®, Aphrodite for the Hispanic Birthday Wishes® Barbie®, and the CEO sculpt for the Caucasian Birthday Wishes® Barbie®.
All the 2015 Birthday Wishes® Barbie® Dolls wear a lovely pink strapless gown with a lace bodice and overskirt, cinched at the waist with a pretty white bow. Each doll also has the perfect pair of earrings and shoes to go with her gown, and a doll stand for her to easily grace a doll shelf or nightstand.
Continue a touching tradition – or start a new one! – by sending Birthday Wishes® Barbie to the young Barbie® fan in your life. You can find them all at TheBarbieCollection.com™ online shop!
Barbie dolls and birthdays go hand in hand. The beloved fashion doll has been given as a treasured gift to girls for more than 50 years!
With Barbie doll celebrating her own birthday this month, now’s the perfect time to meet Birthday Wishes® Barbie® Doll. Created to honor a new year of love and friendship, this special doll echoes the innocent glamour of a growing girl, all dolled up for her special day.
The dress features a lovely pin-dot satin skirt, with a pale pink tulle overskirt gathered halfway with white accent bows. A fitted bodice with a touch of lace adds a mature and graceful touch to the gown.
As with many things in life, it’s the little details that mean so much, and with Birthday Wishes Barbie, the details make this a doll to cherish. Her fingernails and lipstick, a pale and sophisticated pink; her hair, specially styled in loose, long, flowing curls; and her matching headband, holding her hair back just far enough to review her beautifully simple pale pink earrings.
For moms, daughters, and dolls of all ages, Birthday Wishes® Barbie® Doll is a dream come true, and a perfect way to carry on a tradition of birthday beauty for years to come - just like the dreamy scene in the video below. She’ll arrive in gift-ready packaging when you pick her up in the online shop today!

Fans of Skipper ® doll, her friends and family, are enjoying a fantastic 2014, celebrating her 50th anniversary! Barbie® Collector started the birthday bash with the adorable 50th Anniversary Skipper Doll. Skipper wears a perfect recreation of 1965’s “Happy Birthday” fashion. Naturally, any party dress that comes with a cake and candles is cause for celebration!
The birthday girl also made sure to enclose a special invitation just for you. Guess what happened—Skipper became an instant sold-out collector hit! Birthday wishes came from all over the world as Skipper doll’s ardent fans rejoiced over the anniversary of Barbie’s fun younger sister! Skipper® 50th Anniversary Doll is a perfect reminder of why we adore Skipper—not to mention the thrill of a childhood birthday party!
Now, because the outpouring of joy was so momentous, the celebration continues. Skipper® 50th Anniversary Doll is back as an exclusive, special-edition brunette! It’s party time all over again, so let’s light the candles and get ready to sing “Happy Birthday” to the lovely new Skipper doll. She’s just as delightful and sweet as her blonde counterpart, except she has gorgeous, swingy chocolate-brown hair to frame her darling face!
The new ensemble also includes all of the wonderful party accessories that were featured with the original set. Impeccable white gloves and a boater hat make this festive outfit the perfect attire for a little lady at an outdoor party!
Skipper doll has enchanted us for years in fashions that reflect what little girls have worn in the past five decades. She’s appeared in a variety of fun trends, but most important, she’s always been like our very own kid sister. Sassy and spirited, she’s our Skipper, and we love having her in our collections.

Plus, sneak peek 2014: check out the new Barbie Look™ dolls (pictured above) and Birthday Wishes® Barbie® doll (page 27). Whether it’s pop culture favorites, haute off the runway or classic style, there’s something for everyone on your list. Happy Holidays!
Rejoice! It’s time for the holidays, that special time we gather together with family and friends to celebrate. We share gratitude for the blessings of this year and good wishes for the year to come. And if you’re anything like me, one thought has been in your mind since, oh, around August... “What am I going to wear to all those parties?”
Some people spend months poring over recipes so they can cook the perfect meal, but those of us who are more sartorially inclined are looking for a different kind of recipe. We spend hours searching for a way to concoct the perfect holiday outfit!
It’s that special time of year when it seems like there’s a celebration every night. There are daytime office work parties, casual celebrations with friends, family dinners, and the oh-so-important “meal with your significant other’s family.” After sitting on the couch watching DVDs all fall, you have to actually get up and get dressed. Yay! And also… yikes, because So. Many. Outfits!
Luckily there are a few color schemes that instantly say, “I’m here to celebrate!” Black and white is classic, red and gold is traditional, and black and silver is always fab for holiday parties. But this year, the color combo that has caught our eye around here is black and gold. Is there anything as elegant as black? Is there anything as luxurious as gold? Together they’re the perfect pair to add glamour and sophistication to any holiday outfit.
Black and gold is easy to work into an existing wardrobe. Take that basic LBD (Little Black Dress) that you’d normally wear to the office party and zhuzh* it up by throwing on some golden bling – a shiny statement necklace or dangling earrings. Meeting up with friends for a casual holiday hang? Add some golden goodness to your black jeans and top with a shiny clutch or a pair of glittering golden high heels. When you want to pull out all the stops, you can hit the mall for a gold-sequined shrug or a no-holds-barred glam gown.
Black and gold. That’s my special holiday recipe this year, and it’s easy to do. It goes like this: Start with some cool black. Add a little golden heat. Wear. Glow. Celebrate!
*Zhuzh: to add a special finishing touch.

An island made up of many lands—some beautiful, others disquieting, Faraway Forest™ is home to elves, fairies, and water nymphs. Mortal royalty live here, too, as well as unknown creatures who dwell in deep, blue Crystal Caves™. If you are lucky, you will meet them all while you journey with us.
Here are the remarkable denizens of the Faraway Forest we've met so far:
2015: Queen of the Dark Forest™ Barbie® Doll (order now!)
2015: Lady of the White Woods™ Barbie® Doll (order now!)
2014: Faraway Forest™ Elf Barbie® Doll (no longer available)
And there are more protectors of their realms waiting to be discovered in 2016 and beyond!
From the Magical Lagoon™ to the Mystical Meadows™ and far beyond to the White Woods™, Faraway Forest is a mythical, marvelous place. Some distant corners can be dark and treacherous; other spots are beautiful beyond imagination and hold glorious treasures. But little here is as it seems. Not even the winds or the trees or the fragrant flowers are really only what they appear. If you look very deeply, you will be enchanted by the incredible detail and resplendence here. And beneath appearances, there are wishes and secrets and complex alliances.
These tales of this Faraway Forest have long been told by a beguiling elf princess. She has traveled throughout the forests and across the high mountain ranges. She knows the whimsical creatures of the Mystical Meadows™ and she has enjoyed tea with the Queen of the Dark Forest™. The elven princess will share her stories and adventures, introduce you to her most interesting friends, and she may even tell you of the many intrigues of the Faraway Forest.
