Holiday Barbie 2013 - Happy Dolliday Countdown to Christmas!

Hi everyone!
Sorry for the multiple posts in one day (that's a contrast to how my past few years of blogging have been, haha), but I'm trying to catch up on my Barbies so I will have them all done by Christmas!
Today we're peeking at the 2013 Holiday Barbie, which was also the 25th Anniversary doll in the Holiday Barbie line. 

Here's a look at her box. You can see she's the 25th anniversary (of the holiday line), but they don't seem super excited about it, lol. 

They also came out with a gorgeous AA version with the Pazette facemold (stunning!!). 

Here she is in her full Snowflake Queen glory. 
I was surprised to see that she did NOT come with a stand, unfortunately. :(
Furthermore, her hair is a little #basic if you ask me.  I was hoping for a bit more glamour or pizazz with this being an anniversary year. 

The bodice is really beautiful and features a snowflake design that lays on top of the silver material underneath. 

Her shoes are pearly white pumps and they were very difficult to put on her feet and did not stay on very easily.  I'm a little disappointed with that as she IS an anniversary doll. 

She has the Mackie face sculpt, which we will start to see a lot of, however this one looks a bit different as her eyeshadow is very dark and smokey. She has beautifully painted lips and long dangly silver earrings. 

Nobody does a smokey eye like Barbie. 

Overall, I think this doll is very beautiful, but a bit disappointing for being a 25th year Holiday Barbie anniversary doll.  I was expecting, at the very least, a stand, a more elaborate hairstyle, and a few more accessories, but she's pretty and her dress sparkles amazingly in the light so I'm happy to have her!  The AA one is high on my list to collect as well, though, because I like that one even more! 

What do you guys think? 

See you in tomorrow's review!

  1. She's really pretty if you don't expect her to be extra special because of the anniversary. I hope you get the Pazette version too, she's gorgeous!

    1. Thanks, Black Kitty! I agree, she's pretty amazing on her own as a regular holiday Barbie and certainly gorgeous compared to some of the more recent ones. :)

  2. Hi Farrah! I do undestand your disappointment. The doll is cute, but for something like an anniversary, I would expect something a bit more extra. The Pazette one is stunning, one of my favorite sculpts that still hasn't been overused, in my opinion. In general, I tend to prefer the non-blonde dolls over the blond one, and this year is no exception.
    I haven't been much on my computer these past few days, but I'll try to keep up with the rest of your posts.

    1. Hi MC! Yes, I haven't seen the Pazette mold very often, that's true! It's so pretty! No worries..I have so much catching up to do on the blogs, I feel horrible that I haven't caught up with everyone yet. I truly do love the blog platform!
