Happy New Year!!
No…Rebecca has not been hitting the bottle nor does she have her dates wrong. Mattel just announced that the highly anticipated next installment for their Holiday Hostess line will be up for sale Wednesday, October 9th. She is Happy New Year Barbie and she is a BFC exclusive.
There has been much speculation today as to what type of doll this is. Namely, collectors were asking “ Is she Silkstone or vinyl?”. A Mattel representative finally answered conclusively that this fabulous lady, though she looks very much like Silkstone, is in fact vinyl….just like every other doll in this very popular line. She may be residing currently in the category of Silkstones on the Barbiecollector website but that is an error and they are working to fix it. If you watched the video of Bill Greening I posted a few weeks ago, you saw quick photos of this one. If not, the promo shots are finally available to the public.

The chatter on this one would indicate she will sell out quickly. I know what I will be doing next Wednesday.
