Thanksgiving Feast Barbie Doll

The Thanksgiving Feast Barbie has arrived and I am very pleased that I ordered her! She looks even better in person than the promotional photo.

I will be leaving her in her box. Just look at the background. It's perfect!

Her stand appears to be a vintage type with pins that insert into the bottom of the foot. Yay!


The food tray is nicely detailed and executed and although the doll's hands can't really hold anything, the rubber bands are supporting the tray at a 'believable' angle.


The box was completely tissued and came in it's own mint shipper box inside of another peanut filled box. So how did the upper right corner get smooshed?  It doesn't really bother me but it is noteworthy.

This doll is available for purchase to Barbie Fan Club members for the retail price of $50. One doll per membership. She is a Gold Label and part of the Holiday Hostess Collection. No more than 3100 units will be produced worldwide.

I heartily recommend this doll.

  1. I got mine yesterday and really love it! This is one doll where I feel that I got my money's worth. I was getting tired of feeling ripped off in the doll world between rising costs and the poor exchange rate of the US dollar.

    I'm a hard core NRFBer but think this one is such a cute box that I might keep her this way.

  6. That's too bad they they forgot your stand. It's one of the best parts of the set as it fits right into her feet.
