I was working with Mattel in 1988 when the first Holiday Barbie was introduced and I remember what an instant sensation it became. 

This 10th anniversary Happy Holidays 1997 Barbie is truly a prized holiday treasure. Ten years after the first Happy Holidays was introduced, it was available exclusively to members of The Official Barbie Collector's Club,

Wearing a royal red, snowy white, and glittering gold gown, this 10th anniversary special edition Barbie is truly adorable. The jeweled choker and earrings enhance this Barbie doll's beauty. This 10th anniversary special edition Barbie wears a golden tiara that is adorned with six ruby-colored gemstones that adds to her majestic look. Standing 12-inches tall, the 'Happy Holidays 1997' Barbie is all dressed for the holiday season. This Barbie doll will make the perfect addition to your little girl's doll collection.

As a special bonus, the matching 1997 Hallmark Barbie ornament, in superb condition, is included with this doll. It was a holiday tradition in our home for many years. 

Barbie is the most popular fashion doll in the history of the world and has been since its introduction in 1959. I first started working with Barbie in 1985 in Mattel's Samples Department. In 1988 I began writing toy fair scripts, videos, marketing skits, custom songs and other creative for Barbie at Mattel. My first email address was and you can still reach me there. 

This toy is part of my personal collection and has been archived by me, Joe Galliani, the creator of the Street Sharks, and President of Mr. Joe's Really Big Productions for over two decades in my home's attic.

The package is in visually perfect condition. Photos are of this specific toy for sale. Please review carefully and thoroughly as all sales are final and no refunds will be issued.
