Closest to the mark since the Happy Holiday Barbie series!Sep 23, 2007
By D. S. Jackson
I have been looking out for a new Barbie with the same kind of charm as the dolls from the original Happy Holiday Barbie series. So far this 2007 Holiday Barbie is the closest to the mark! From her dimpled cheeks to the thoughtful design of the box she comes in (perfect for display),this Barbie is a charmer! She will thrill anyone who is looking for true Christmas Red on a Holiday Doll. After the holidays your child can pack the dress away with some wrapping tissue in a nice box or other "trunk" til next Christmas. The thrill of taking the dress out for the doll each Christmas teaches the reward of things well kept!

Beautiful!Nov 30, 2007
By Alphia D. Larkins
This is a gift for me and I am 70 years old! I have a few "special" Barbies that I have collected over the years, not many, only four or five, but each one is special to me in some way. This particular one because she is the 2007 Christmas model, dressed in red with a white fur headband. I love the Christmas clothing, it gives her such a "Holiday" look. As for whether or not it is an "educational" toy, I don't see how a Barbie Doll can be educational to anyone, but she is very beautiful and lovely in appearance and that is all that is required of a Barbie doll. Don't you agree? And as to whether or not it is "durable" it will be as long as I have it, but in the hands of a small child, I would say that it would look like any other doll that a little girl has, the hair would be tangled and messy, and the clothes would probably be missing because little girls love removing the clothes of their dolls, and they eventually (the clothes) get lost, however the doll would still be what is was minus the clothes and fancy hair-do, so yes, I would say it is "durable." However, with me, it will not be taken out of the box in my lifetime, and I hope that whichever great granddaughter of mine that inherits it will treasure it and take as good of care of it as I have. Simply, it is beautiful to look at and that is the only requirement for it to fulfill, and it certainly does that!

Mattel Barbie 2007 Holiday Doll - A Doll to Remember!Jan 14, 2008
By Elizabeth Greene
I had started a collection of Holiday Barbie Dolls for my daughter when she was 3 years of age. The dolls were always regal with elegant clothing and jewelry. Their hair and makeup were impeccable. Well, I thought with age she might lose interest, as she chose never to take the dolls out of the box for fear the dolls would get dirty or damaged. I made the mistake of skipping 2006 and I had a very upset child on my hands. Needless to say, I was determined to rectify my mistake in 2007. When I found the doll on Amazon, I was in awe. I found this Holiday Barbie to be the the best yet. Her hair, eyes and makeup were much more detailed than the previous year's dolls. Her gown, a "Santa Claus" design, was absolutely beautiful. This may not be a doll that I allow my daughter to play with, as she may end up with chopped-off hair and more makeup applied, but it most definitely is a keepsake I know she will be able to share with her daughters. I would recommend it highly.

Mattel Lacking in Product Presentation Holes in GownFeb 09, 2009

Mattel Lacking in Product Presentation - Holes in Fabric
Why does Mattel insist on poking a hole through every fine fabric costume on collectible dolls with a needle and thread or plastic t-tie? Just try to remove the doll from the box without having a snag in the fabric. I struggled to remove the doll without pulling the t-ties through the fabric. It made two holes/snags in each pleat in the FRONT of the gown. The doll dress is simply too long to fit in the box without wrinkling.
After the millions of dolls they have sold, could their staff devise a way to keep the doll in the box without having to sew the dress to the box?
If the collector wishes to display the doll outside the box, they must try to carefully remove the thread - which still leaves the hole poked through the fabric in front of gown.
Why would someone pay this much money for a doll with a with holes punched through the fabric?
Madame Alexander - a premier doll manufacturer years - has for years securely fastened their dolls with a simple ribbon or rigid plastic forms. Why can't Mattel do the same?
Quality Control at Mattel? It is missing!
