Happy 50th Birthday, Barbie - US Dealer Exclusive

March 9th is the 50th Birthday of Barbie. There are a series of celebration lined up all over the world- roadshows, conventions, fashonshows, TV especial programs etc. And one of which is the release of the Parisenne Pretty Silkstone Barbie, which is a US dealer exclusive.

As you could see in the picture that she is in blue tone, which surprisingly is not a stereotyped romantic color like Barbie pink, violet or any pastel colors etc. Although I found this color not so stunning, I still think that silkstone Barbie looks elegant! Especially George of Angelicdreamz did a good job on giving her matching Paris street backdrop!

Oh, is lantern dress a trend this Spring? Paul's Grey Parisienne has a lantern dress, so does Barbie Parisienne! See my other blog entry about Paul's Grey Parisienne doll with pictures.

This Parisienne Pretty Silkstone Barbie is a Gold Label one, and exclusively for selective US dealaers. It would not be able to find in the mass market or Barbie Club (unless the 2nd hand market). If you pre-order it now with Angelic Dreamz, it is US99.9, but it says that the price would be adjusted to US129.99 when she is in stock in this coming July. Marl & B's website also announced similar condition but with US0.99 cheaper on each price tag. However, I have just surfed Cherished Friends, it is priced at only US99 without mentioning the price adjustment after July. Interested parties should contact the dealer for details!
