Barbie for big girls.

Happy New Year!!

BFC Holiday Hostess New years


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.

Happy New Year™ Barbie® Doll

Retail:  $75.00

Available to BFC members only at beginning 10/09/2013 at 9:00AM PST

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

    Thank you for keeping us posted on all the latest and greatest. Since I buy only a few barbies, now that I blow all of my cash on FR, it is so great having your blog to keep me updated, so I don’t end up missing out on one I really want! Do feel free to post when you have been hitting the bottle, I’m sure it would be just as entertaining!

    • You are very welcome Tiffany. 🙂 And yes…I can be quite humorous after a few glasses of wine LOL! I will keep that in mind for future posts. Now that I think on it..I could do a regular segment entitled “Hitting the Bottle –(insert title here)” 😉 I am liking this idea.

        Oooh, pre-schedule and we can all enjoy wine and dolls together through cyberspace. I’ve never played with dolls and drank wine at the same time. Sounds fun and maybe it would improve my photography skills, lol! Or it could be disastrous. Red wine and very expensive dolls? Hmmm, let’s roll the dice!
