  1. I saw this list about a week ago and thought they were just a the nominees! I mean, there could only be one winner in each category right? Anyways I am happy that my girl Barbie won 2 awards this year. Bride Grace Kelly and the Goddess of Galaxy are among the best from Mattel in 2011! Honored to have both of them in my collection.

    p/s: I saw the Grace Kelly is 50% off in some places. Sad for an award winning doll like her but yay for us! I'm tempted to get another one just for fun...

    1. I think the bridal Grace Silksktone was way overpriced to begin with. Nice doll but definitely not $175. worth of nice.
