Holiday Barbie Dolls

2013 marked the 25th anniversary of Holiday Barbie Dolls. For many of us, it just wouldn't be Christmas without Barbie. Many of us have childhood memories of Christmas morning with Barbie gifts under the tree.  Today, there are Barbie Christmas Ornaments and other Holiday Barbies - special editions, grocery store versions, including an Angel series to help celebrate the season.

Happy Holiday Barbie Dolls were made from 1988 to 1998. The 1988 Happy Holiday Barbie is considered to be the first "Collectible Barbie", although it wasn't originally planned that way. The dolls rapidly sold out and almost immediately began to command big prices on the secondary market.

Based on the popularity of that doll, Mattel realized that there was a huge market for Barbie Dolls for adult collectors. This was the beginning of the "Barbie craze" that continued to grow, reaching an absolute fevered pitch in the late 1990s.

Happy Holiday Barbie Dolls

This series was one of the most (if not the most) popular of all time. Many began their Barbie collection because of this series and many collected only this line. Many girls received a "Happy Holiday" Barbie each year for Christmas.   

Since the end of the Happy Holiday Series in 1998 there have been Holiday Barbie Dolls every year, but there has not been a continual series like the earlier one.

In 1999 the Holiday Barbie was called Millenium Princess, in celebration of the new millenium.  From 2000 to 2002 the Holiday Barbies were the Celebration Series.  In 2003 the Holiday Barbie was called Winter Fantasy.  Since 2004 they have been called Holiday Barbie.  

Holiday Barbie dolls that take pure pleasure
in expressing the Christmas season.

These are the "official" Holiday Barbies - there have been many other holiday themed dolls - porcelain, angels, pink box, etc.  Click on the picture or link to view information about each doll.
