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

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.

The Barbie Look™ 2013

Mattel released photos on BarbieCollector today with a release date for the highly anticipated “The Barbie Look” line.  This line is designed by Bill Greening and is considered a follow-up to his highly successful Barbie Basics designs of past years.  Mattel says the dolls and outfits will be available at http://www.barbiecollector.com/shop or Barbie dealers on 11/15/12.  All Editions are considered Black Label.  I am still trying to get clarification as to exactly what “Black Label” means in editions size but my guess is…big enough that there should be plenty of supply on these.  I think this new effort from Mr. Greening is fabulous and a natural and stylish sequel to his previous line of Basics.

First Look at Barbie for 2013

Photos are starting to show up on retail sites so I believe it’s okay to share them here.  Mattel shared some preview photos of dolls coming up in 2013.  If you like Dolls of the World, you will perhaps be happy with the offerings.  I don’t know about you guys but….I am getting a little tired of France and Spain coming out again and again. I can’t deny they are cute but it shows up so often it’s making me feel like Mattel is brokering some kind of trade deal with these countries. I mean no disrespect to the lovely countries of Spain and France….just want to see some different ones from Mattel and their Dolls of the World series.  Based on early pricing from dealers sites, the Dolls of the World will cost around $25.00 and are due out in December of 2012.

Bill greening debuted the successor to his highly successful Barbie Basics line with The Barbie Look series:

The Barbie Look 1:

Oh my word!!!  Is she wearing Missoni??!!  She is a Steffie faced beauty with rooted eyelashes.  Toooo cute!  Priced around $30.00 and due out first quarter of 2013.

The Barbie Look 2:

Very Chic!  Uses the Mbili face mold I believe.  Priced around $30.00 and due out first quarter of 2013.

Since this new series is all based around “ The Look”, there had to be fashion packs as well….

The Tea Party Accessory Pack

Barbielook3

The The Poolside Accessory PackBarbielook4

The Golf Accessory PackBarbielook5

The Red Carpet Accessory PackBarbielook6

Each pack should retail for around $25.00.  There is not date as to when these are expected but I suspect it will be the same time as the dolls.  Girl has to have her clothes when she arrives right?
