Updated on December 26, 2013

Make Your Own Barbie Doll for a Great Personalized Gift

There's no shortage of Barbie dolls on the market, and new ones are coming out all the time, but wouldn't it be fun to make your own Barbie? Mattel is making this dream a reality. You can now create a Barbie doll online and personalize her with your choice of doll, outfits and a personalized message shirt. It only takes a few minutes, and your personalized Barbie will be sent right to your home. Want to learn more? Then read below to see how to create your own Barbie.

Most little girls love Barbie, and what could be more fun than having a special Barbie with her name on it or that resembles her? Now Mattel is making it easy to style your own Barbie. The "Styled by Me" Barbie website allows you to select one of six dolls to personalize with your choice of outfits, including a T-shirt with your child's name or short personal message on it.

Right now, the selection of dolls is limited to three fair-skinned and three darker-skinned dolls with different hair styles. They don't offer the ability to change eye color or hair color on the dolls; you simply need to select the one you prefer.

After choosing your doll, you'll be able to pick an outfit for Barbie, either a dress or tops and bottoms that you can mix and match. For this outfit, you also get to pick your choice of accessories, including a purse, shoes and necklace for your doll. You can then choose two additional outfits without accessories and, finally, a Barbie-sized T-shirt that can have your child's name or any message up to 9 characters printed on it. You can choose from 5 different colors for the shirt, as well as select the font and color of the text.

The entire process to make your own Barbie doll takes just a few minutes, and the pricing is fairly reasonable - up to $39.99 for the doll and all the outfits, plus shipping and handling. The doll will then be mailed directly to your house in a pink Barbie box.

For little girls who love Barbie, it's a great gift idea!

More Personalized Dolls

Matching girl and doll clothes and dolls

Styled by Me Barbie dolls are great if you just want the chance to create a Barbie doll by selecting the outfits and adding a short personalization on the shirt, but they don't offer the customization of other personalized dolls.

If you're looking for a doll that looks like your daughter, My Twinn is one of the best places to shop. They have dozens of choices in skin and eye colors, hair colors and textures and hair styles. You can even add freckles and moles. Each doll is custom made. The site also asks you to upload a photo of your child so the doll creators can be sure what they're making looks like your child. Dolls are available with a choice of outfits, and you can get a matching outfit for your daughter.

Another site offering personalized dolls is American Girl. My American Girl dolls start with one of 40 dolls with a variety of hair, skin and eye color. You can then personalize these dolls with a variety of clothes, accessories and style options. You can also add accessories such as braces or glasses, and you can even get a wheelchair.

For a cheaper alternative, you can also buy matching girl and doll clothes (without the doll) from sites such as Personalization Mall, Amazon or eBay. This is a fun and inexpensive way to let your child dress like her doll, even if the two don't look alike.

Matching Girl and Doll Clothes at Amazon - Dollie & Me Dress Legging With Matching Doll Outfit

Amazon is another place to shop for matching girl and doll clothes. For instance, the cotton/poly blend outfit shown here is available in girls size 2T - 6x and comes with an outfit for your child and any standard 18-inch doll.

      I would do that for the right person. Personalized gifts are great when it's a match to the recipient's personality.
