Barbie for big girls.

Barbie News from 2013 Toy Fair!!

The American International Toy fair kicked off in New York on Sunday and we have some pictures.  It looks like Mattel will be giving us…drum roll please….Audrey Hepburn!    None of these have been confirmed by Mattel as of yet but if they are showing up at Toy Fair ( even as paper dolls LOL!), they are being produced.

First up is Barbie as Sabrina

Toy Fair 2013 2

Wow!!!  I can’t wait to see the face in real life!  The picture of her looks good though.  She doesn’t look like she is Silkstone but I could be wrong.  I have no idea what the price point is or when she is coming out.  Some dealer sites have descriptions up and are saying summer.  Will know more when Mattel actually announces these.

Audrey in Roman Holiday

Toy Fair 2013 1

How adorable!!!  All she needs is the Vespa ( and articulation to sit on it LOL!).  I am dying to see the shoes on this one.  No doubt here folks…she is vinyl.  That means the price point should be reasonable.

    I saw somewhere that the Sabrina B & W gown is on a silkstone and the Roman Holiday will be a MM vinyl doll.

    I am actually very excited about this year’s upcoming dolls! Since the release of Grace Kelly, I thought Audrey would be perfect as a silkstone. I think she looks like a silkstone Barbie in the image ( vinyl dolls have the ball joints connecting the arms).
    With such a beautiful gown as that of Sabrina, I was hoping Mattel would have displayed her sideways like they did with Grace Kelly bride. That we, the gown gets a better view.

    • I agree Jessie. It would have been much better to have the doll displayed better. Unfortunatley, it appears that they just had cardboard cutouts in a box for display and not the actual doll { Oh Mattel…seriously?! cardboard??}. Hopefully we will see promo shots soon.

  6. Are those really their heads? They look like glued on carboard or something. It must be the lighting or something but it almost looks like they put a cardboard picture on the heads to hide the real face as a surprise until the real one comes out..

    • Yep…you caught that too eh? I was shocked to see that they just had cardboard cutouts in a box for Toyfair. Oh well…here is hoping they have promo shots out soon.

    • I know right?! Poor Ken never seems to get the spotlight. There will be a Silkstone Ken this year though. See my post on the Barbie Fan Club signup for a sketch.
