Your “Valentine’s Day” Barbie
Posted by helen on February 13, 2013
“The 2013 Valentine’s Day spending survey, conducted by BIGinsight, shows a slight increase in expected sales this year with the average person planning to spend $130.97 on candy, cards, flowers and gifts”
So, Barbie Collector decided its a great day to release some new dolls when consumers are ready to spend. $139 sounds not bad, in order to grab all the money you have in your pocket, they increased the Tribal Beauty from $100 to $125 right before it hits the shelf on Valentine’s Day, $125 plus shipping & sales tax, it would be $146.76 if I order her, I need to go on subway trains and beg for some $$ if I want her badly. Luckily, I don’t want her.
the Luncheon Ensemble ($50), cocktail dress ($75), “Barbie & Midge 50th Anniversary” ($75) Barbie & Midge doll double carrying case ($45) will also be released tomorrow. please pray they wont raise the price on Luncheon, as I really want to order her. lol
I guess many dolls are not in stock, they just want you to “preorder”. since they have used these Mock-ups at toy fair, how can you expect these dolls are in stock? like the Cocktail doll, most likely, she is not in stock. the Batman & Catwoman have already been up on the website for you to order, but they do NOT have the dolls. “preorder” “pre-sale”, how much do you like it?
