Holiday Barbie Dolls Are Fun to Collect

In 1988, Mattel released the first of its Christmas Barbie dolls, the Happy Holidays Barbie. It was immensely popular and sold out quickly. Today, Mattel continues to release new Barbie Christmas dolls every year. In addition to the annual Barbie Collector Holiday dolls, there are also other colorful and festive dolls dressed for the holidays. If you or someone you know is dreaming of a Barbie Christmas, these dolls can help you make your Christmas dreams come true.

According to the Barbie Wiki, the 1988 Happy Holiday Barbie is the doll that made Mattel realize they could market dolls directly to adult collectors. The dolls sold out quickly when they were released, and immediately started to command high prices among collectors. The Wiki says this was the beginning of the "Barbie craze" that reached a peak in the 1990s.
