bbie To Star As Mattel’s Live-Action Barbie So expect barbie to be a big trending topic soon. Secondly… The Designer's Doll - 09/01/2009 And lastly BARBIE ISN'T DRUGS, SEX, OR POSTING STUPID VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE THAT WILL HAUNT HER LONG INTO ADULTHOOD. So back off and count yourself lucky. In fact go hug your kid and thank her for being one of the good eggs. Not to mention the money to be made!!! Think the only barbie worth money is the original or really old ones? Think again. In a 2018 study done by 24/7 Wall St. Insightful Analysis and Commentary for U.S. and Global Equity Investors The most expensive barbies might be in your toybox right now. With some of the more recent years seeing a market for designer collaboration. I personally have been looking for the Moschino barbie doll since it sold out a few years ago. Barbie is one of the most popular toys ever, selling about 1 billion dolls since debuting in 1959. And even though Barbies have been purchased by millions of people from 150 countries, some versions of the doll are more valuable than others. There are legions of collectors searching the internet and other places for rare editions of the doll. What makes some Barbies more valuable than others are the doll’s unique accessories; the physical condition of the item; variations on Barbie’s career outfits; limited edition dolls; versions found only in some countries; and if the box is unopened. Collecting rare and valuable Barbies has become more than a cottage industry, so with that in mind, 24/7 Wall St. compiled a list of the most valuable Barbies using the latest available . *No one would have predicted such zealous collecting of the toy back in 1959, when Barbie debuted at the New York Toy Fair. That year, the doll cost $3. Today, a mint condition Barbie from 1959, wearing a black and white bathing suit and clutching sunglasses, can garner more than $20,000 on eBay. *FOOTNOTE #1 SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE* Barbie made an appeal to history aficionados in 2003 by taking a turn as Marie Antoinette and decked out in a flowing gown. That Barbie was being auctioned for as much as $2,000 on eBay. Themes tied to television shows such as “I Love Lucy” also are popular with collectors. Several one-of-a-kind Barbies have sold for exorbitantly high prices, outshining dolls even on this list. The most expensive version of the doll was sold for $302,500 in 2010. That doll was designed to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Another doll sold for $85,000 in 1999. As the introduction to designer dolls, that Barbie was clad in a gold bikini top and a belt featuring 160 diamonds. To identify the 50 most valuable Barbie dolls, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed Barbie dolls currently for sale on eBay. Price data was obtained on March 5, 6, and 7. To be considered, dolls needed to have maintained similar price ranges over that period. The year each Barbie was released came from Mattel. Release dates not listed by the dollmaker were obtained from news archives, collector’s blogs, and other sources. The rare qualities of these dolls were listed on eBay, and often among the key drivers of each doll’s price. We only considered the most expensive doll within a given model. We included identical models only when accessories, certain rare qualities, or the context of a special release meaningfully distinguished duplicates. Page 2 of 11 50.

But a very recent example shows that trend spotting can be an exception to the rule. In October of 2011, Mattel released tokidoki Barbie , complete with a pink bob hairdo, tattoos and cactus friend, Bastardino. The dolls retailed for $50 and are, as of this writing, listed on Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs more starting at $400 and going for as much as $1,590 . That kind of escalation in value is rare in a market where vintage or antique is typically the way to go. “There was a limited amount made,” said Sandi Holder, author of Barbie, A Rare Beauty and owner of the Doll Attic in Union City, Calif. “It was in the news and it became controversial because mothers disapproved. More media attention drove up the demand.” Typically, though, the money to be made collecting Barbie dolls revolves around acquiring vintage dolls that are, optimally, still in the box with all their accessories, including the stand. Barbie was launched in 1959 and that original version, where she’s wearing a black-and-white striped bathing suit, can fetch between $7,000 and $27,000 depending upon the condition. The latter price tag is a Guinness record set in May 2006 for “highest price paid for a Barbie doll in an auction” and is held by Holder’s store. During her last auction, in November 2011, a doll sold for a whopping $19,000. “The Barbie market and values are strong,” Holder said. There are two camps in the collecting world: Never Removed From Box (NRFB) and De-Boxed. For investment purposes, NRFB is ideal, but many collectors prefer to enjoy the dolls by displaying them out of the box. Source: Sandi Holder's Doll Attic Barbie Japanese Auction “I do it for fun and love of the hobby,” Holder said. “I play Santa Claus 365 days a year. It lets people recreate childhood memories, especially in the dismal days we have right now.” For the purposes of investing, Holder recommends researching and consulting with someone who knows the business before making a significant purchase. In Barbie collecting, for example, dolls from the 1970s — a.k.a. “the Malibu era” — can sell for around $200. It is also important to keep up with what special editions catch hold and which ones don’t. For instance, the artist series — in which dolls are dressed in clothes resembling the art of masters like Van Gogh and Renoir — is not as coveted as, say, Holiday Barbie, a tradition that began in 1988; only a limited number of each are sold annually. “It’s all about demand and what people will want to pay,” Holder said. That’s one universal truth in doll collecting. Another is that whether it’s Barbie, Madame Alexander, Russian or papier mache, words like “pristine” or “perfect” will drive up the value. At Patricia Vaillancourt’s eBay store called Antique Dolls , the starting bid on a Jumeau — 19th century French doll made of bisque — in “perfect” condition is $6,200. A rare glass-eyed China doll, also described as “perfect,” begins at $3,500. Denise Van Patten, a long-time doll collector and dealer of modern, vintage and antique dolls whose online home base is http://About.com , recommends that an aspiring collector explore the answers to these questions to get started: Are you interested in antique, vintage or modern? Are you interested in a narrow time period or one particular material? Do you want to collect based on a theme or variations of one doll? Alternative Investing - A CNBC Special Report - See Complete Coverage “Whether you are new to doll collecting or have been doll collecting for years, you need to have a good grasp of doll collecting basics,” Van Patten writes. “The basics you’ll need range from how to value and identify your dolls, to how to protect and preserve your dolls, to how to photograph your dolls and get the best prices for them on eBay.” Van Patten is the author of The Official Price Guide To Dolls, but the resource material out there, in print and on the web, is vast and constantly updated. Whether trying to assess the value of a doll found in an old attic or if it’s worth bu dolls love shayari ing the latest model of Barbie, Holder said it’s worth consulting an expert. She felt it particularly gratifying to be able to give a retired couple $27,000 for a doll they brought to have appraised. They were astounded. “They set out to buy a motor home and see the world,” Holder said. “It was a very beautiful story." ——— HISTORICAL Barbie’s full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts.
