Four Stars for Barbie 2012 Holiday Collector   Beautiful - Not for Deboxing or Playing by Talvi, 10/4/2012
This review is on:

Barbie 2012 Holiday Collector's Doll

The Holiday Barbie dolls always come beautifully presented in a picturesque box and beautiful styling. But please note that they are not intended for young kids or for playing. They are one of the few collector Barbies that do not come with a stand or any other means of displaying them. As well, the hair is usually geled and heavily styled, the skirt 'fluffed' out with cardboard, and details on the front are not on the back of the dress. When removed, her dress hem won't be as full and she doesn't have 3 dimensional details.Also note that unlike a lot of Barbies, she isn't poseable and her legs/arms don't bend. Also, her legs and torso are hollow plastic and break easily along the seams. This really isn't the doll for deboxing.That said, the box is so beautiful that this is a lovely display item when never opened. And that's what most collectors buy this doll for - to complete collections of boxed Barbie Holiday dolls. She is a lovely doll inside her box.

Four Stars for Barbie 2012 Holiday Collector   The golden age of Holiday Barbies continues by The Taminator, 5/6/2013

Barbie 2012 Holiday Collector's Doll

The description says that this doll comes with a display stand, but it doesn't. Mattel stopped including display stands with the Holiday Barbies last year supposedly because most collectors were leaving them in the box anyway. I didn't like being herded into a certain type of collecting then, and I don't like it now. By this logic, the doll shouldn't have shoes either, since you can't see them, but there is a pair tucked behind the dress toward the bottom. I can see how some people might miss them altogether if they didn't take her out of the box.This is one of the classier holiday dolls. The last few years have truly been a golden age for the holiday Barbies, with modern ballgowns that people might really wear, rather than tacky craft ribbon explosions of years past. You can't go wrong buying this as a toy, gift or as a 3-dimensional greeting card. Since they are trying to force people into the NRFB (Never Removed From Box) mentality, I think I would prefer a box with a clear plastic window on top that would allow light to come through-- particularly multi-colored Christmas lights-- how neat would that be?The fabric is also better than in previous years. In the box, it's held in place with cardboard, but I think if you took her out to display (remember you'll need to get a stand) the dress would drape nicely and not be artificially stiff. One caveat I think bears mentioning is that red fades quickly. It's the nature of the pigment, so keep this one away from sunny windows if you want her red dress to retain its vibrant color. I think that there's a velcro closure in the back of the dress, so if you like to do a little Frankendolling like I do, it will be easy to swap out the dress with another doll. I wish the jewelry could have been real metal with rhinestones instead of solid plastic, but you can't have everything and stay at this price point.As a Barbie collector, I am thrilled to add her to my Barbie room. You won't be disappointed unless you wanted to put her on a stand, and extra stands are not hard to find. She is definitely one of the best Holiday Barbie dolls ever.

Five Stars for Barbie 2012 Holiday Collector   Gorgeous. The Product Photo Doesn't Do Her Justice. by Dora L. McAlpin, 5/6/2013

Barbie 2012 Holiday Collector's Doll

This doll is breathtaking. The product photo doesn't do her justice. It doesn't adequately convey the rich details in her face and hair or the vibrance of her gown. She's beautifully packaged in a box worthy of display. Keep her as packaged and she'll be a treasured keepsake.She's labeled as a Collector Doll and she's designed accordingly. If you're buying her for a young Barbie fan, I'd suggest buying two. Buy one that can be put up and kept in mint condition and buy another that can be loved up-close. Most young ones won't be satisfied until they get to touch her. This is the kind of gift that can really make the holiday for any girl who loves Barbie, but that hairdo and dress just won't hold up well under vigorous play.The Barbie Collector 2012 Holiday Doll is a treasure.
