Info about the Barbie and Midge 50th Anniversary Gift Set

April 11, 2013

Via Doll Genie I have some very sad news for all the collectors that really wanted the Barbie® and Midge® 50th Anniversary Gift Set in their collection.

For your information… MATTEL has cancelled all orders for the Barbie/Midge Anniversary Set 4/9/2013 – if you didn’t get a shipment of them yet, you will not be getting one :(


No official statement yet about the reason. :( I bet now the set will start selling for INSANE amounts of eBay.

    I just tried to put this gift set into my cart on Barbie Collectibles and it says “Available”. Wonder if it will just not be available to dealers?

    Interesting! Not a word about this on the Barbie Fan Club boards either.

      Maybe when you try to finalize the transaction they tell you it’s unavailable.

    UFFF I´m so glad I bought it. I´m a vintage fan. I hope it will be produce later this year for the sake of collectors.

    Does anyone have any more information about this? I can’t find any other retailers who say this set was cancelled. They’re still available to order on many websites, including Barbie Collector. Apparently there was a problem with the size of the case so Mattel is sending out replacements for people who received the wrong cases, but I haven’t seen anything about the set being cancelled?
