Happy Holiday Barbie 1990 - Happy Dolliday Countdown to Christmas!

Hi everyone, tonights post features the hot pink sensation that was Happy Holidays Barbie from 1990. She was the 3rd doll in this Happy Holiday line.  She's a fan favorite for sure and also marks the first year they introduced the African American version of the Happy Holiday Barbie as well! 

Here's a look at the African American version and she has the Christie face mold.  Again, I just LOVE the little scenes they used to create for the promo photos! 

Sorry for the blurry photo, but here's a look at her in her full dress! Her dress consists of layers of pink ruffled tulle with a star and dot design.  My doll's dress is very faded and has lost a lot of her original sparkle, unforunately, but the fabric itself is still really nice. 

She comes with a green ring, green earrings, a green necklace (not pictured) and a silver and pink hair accessory. 

She has the beautiful Superstar face mold with blue eyes and blue eyeshadow. 
Her hair is a fluffy, light blonde color and she's only of the only ones with bangs. 
Unfortunately, mine has a little scuff on her nose as well. 

Overall, she's such a pink, luscious treat and I was so happy the day I found her at the flea market!  I would like to get another one "in box" to keep for my collection so I can upgrade her dress and have her shoes and cute poster that comes in the original box. 

We are nearing the end of this series!  I hope you're all having a wonderful week.  Pumpkin Pie (who's now 12!) unfortunately tested positive for COVID a few days ago, so we will all be in quarantine for Christmas.  Luckily, Little Button, me and my husband aren't having any symptoms yet, so hopefully we will get through it ok!

  1. Sorry about your kid! That's definitely not the kind of "surprise" you want for the holidays... I hope you all manage with no serious symptoms. The doll is a great find.

    1. Haha, definitely not a good surprise, but she is doing very well...just a runny nose at this point. So far nobody else has symptoms so that's good! Thank you so much for your nice comment. :)

  2. I wonder if it would be possible to touch up the doll's dress with some silver fabric paint.

    1. Great idea, I may have to give that a try, thank you!
