Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse Fashion packs and other new dolls

October 18, 2014

Mattel is finally starting to realize that the Barbie sales are going down because of the lack of imagination when it comes to the dolls and fashions so more and more interesting and realising fashion packs are being released. Check out these uber cute Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse Fashion packs.


Don’t you think that the sweater with Pretty on it looks a lot like this Forever 21 Barbie sweater?


There also a lot of other dolls coming out that are sporting realistic fashions. Check out below the new Barbie Fashionistas Teresa and Nikki plus Barbie Style Grace and Nikki.

Judging by the new style of Barbie dolls do you think Mattel will manage to regain the no.1 spot as the world’s leading toy manufacturer?

    Why do fashionistas not bring articulations anymore? I like fully articulated dolls rather than dolls that don’t have them.

    Looks like Style Grace and Nikki, have the articulated ankles! So much new good stuff. I can’t keep up at this rate.

    What turned me off from buying from Mattel was that so many of my dolls ended up seeping glue from their scalp. Until Mattel stops using the glue and stops cheaping out on the bodies, I don’t think they’ll regain the top spot or have a massive increase of sales.

    Just found your blog and it is great! I have been a collector for years and I am SO GLAD that Mattel is returning to more realistic casual fashions! I truly miss the days of Fashion Avenue and Fashion Fever when Barbie and her friends were dressed like miniature real people! The early Fashionista era improved the doll body with articulation, but the fashions went down hill! Normal teens and adults would never wear the gliterized outfits with graphics that look like they were designed by a four year old! I used to buy all the playline fashions and had to stop about two years ago because the outfits made my stomach turn. I started selectively buying the Life in the Dreamhouse fashions, but I still stay away from the ones with the overly shiny and glittery fancy dresses. Mix and match casual fashions is the way to go! Glad that Mattel finally has started to realize this! They NEED adult collectors because little girls and their princess style can’t support the line. They need adults with cash to buy the dolls and clothes that look like real people!
