“Coming Soon”

Posted by helen on February 4, 2013

2/14 seems like a lovely date, Barbie Collector will release

1. Tribal Beauty Barbie® Doll

she is the first in “Global Glamour” collection and also an online direct.


although there are people out there love her to death,   she is a big pass for me–I can almost smell the foul odor from her stinking hair under that big blue turban…  oh, she can blame  the tropical hot weather that makes her sweat so much….

2. Luncheon Ensemble Barbie® Doll


doll is priced $50,  surprisingly low price, if you  remember last year’s silkstone prices.  the doll has a high production number, 16,800 units.  perhaps Mattel wants this low-priced doll  to spread out  and stand in every store to  catch some new collectors and keep these the existing collectors who have complained about high prices lingering around before they make their mind to give up on Barbie. Lets see what would happen to the market …  I am always very interested in Market Watch and the way Mattel  manages its Brands and how it pulls pricing lever  and uses different sales channels to adjust the market & reach different target groups

    Hi there, Helen:
    I love your blog because that´s not everything about fancy photos and so on (even when I enjoy that). You always gave an interesant and different perspective of the doll phenomena. I find you quite sincere, for example when you spoke about the criteria you use to buy a doll to resell. People do that all the time, but they don´t have the guts to say so. Thanks for so many good moments. Chicovintage

      Thanks, I know there are poeple out there can take the truth. “criticism” is dirty word in these days. lol –one angry visitor threaterned to hack my blog and shut it down then asked me to comment on his threat. He’d better has his IQ tested. lol

    Helen, this is a great analysis about Luncheon Ensemble. Her price definitely makes her more appealing. Now I will wait a bit to buy her but not that long. You know me. LOL!

      now they say this doll has 2 versions, its printed on the bottom of her box… its a bit confusing why there is a variation. is it an AA or a convention exclusive.. we’ll wait and see.
