2016 Barbie Look, Ballet Wishes, Birthday Wishes and Golden Dream Barbie Doll

Lots of things have happened while I was sleeping. First, yesterday we got to see an image of the Ballet Wishes Barbie Doll from eBay. I posted it on my Facebook page but didn’t get a chance to post it here.

On the Barbie Collection Forum we also got to see the Hispanic variation that has the Goddess face but they don’t impress me.

The Birthday Wishes Barbie dolls are horrible! So sorry to say this. WTF? First they look like last year’s dolls and second please stop with the damn soft pink puffy dresses! We get it that they are for the younger collector but kids now a days want edgy looks and not horrible puffy prom dresses. Geez. I can’t post any pictures of them but I’m sure you’ll find them online.

Then we get to the 2016 Barbie Look dolls. As promised they have articulation and the one with the Karl face is UBER cute, but the blonde one… OMG! Have we come to this? Playline face in the collector line? The world is ending!!! As I already mentioned on a Facebook group, Integrity Toys will be getting my money next year. I didn’t have time to post about the gazillion dolls they came up with at the Cinematic Convention but they have NOTHING on Mattel. NOTHING! My God, Mattel. Take some notes. We will pay bigger prices if you actually come up with better quality dolls. At least in the Collector line.

  1. I love the blonde Barbie Look. Perhaps a lot pf collectors requested to have the same doll that tbey are using on the barbiestyle instagram page. And she doesnt look cheap. She’s very pretty

  2. It’s not that she’s cheap looking. I bet the clothes are nice, but that face is not for the collector line. If they wanted that face to belong in the collector line they should not have used it for the playline series.

  3. I really don’t understand why people would have a problem with them using the same heads in the collector line as in the play line… The blond doll looks amazing, and if it looks like that “IRL” it’s going to the top top of my list, right after the “Karl” one. The new Barbie head suits a “collector” doll perfectly … I hope they use it more. I haven’t been this excited about any collector dolls in a long time.

  4. I agree with you – the face mold is so mundane- it wouldn’t be a problem if the price was equitable but u know it won’t be- these dolls are like $40, right? So why pay that much for a doll with an ordinary face. ImThese are collector dolls and there should be a distinction to justify the price. Mattel has lost their direction- who ever is in charge just doesn’t get it- maybe hire someone who appreciates Barbie and has a sense of style. And another ballerina? No matter what store I go to I always see tons of the Barbie ballerinas in stock and then, they also have the play line version as well- another example of poor management – why keep making a type of doll if they don’t perform well economically ? I too was uber excited at the Integrity line- and I must say that they have been receiving much more if my business. While I don’t like all of their concepts , a great deal are fashion forward and innovative ; the faces molds and styling are so perfect – especially the male dolls. As mentioned in another of my posts , so far there is only one doll I am getting from the 2016 line for sure and it’s a superhero doll. I just can’t believe that the same company that produces Creative and detailed dolls like Monster High continues to design duds- maybe the Barbie team should take a little field trip and take some notes from that department ?

  5. OMG that brunette doll is GORGEOUS. like, the I have no problem with the blonde either, she looks amazing. All three dolls are drop dead beautiful. I will be purchasing the brunette, that is absolutely certain! Can’t wait. And the AA looks sooooo stunning.

  6. Rebecca, it’s the Karl lagerfeld facemold.
    Darlene, when I want to buy something that has Collecter written all over it and a price to match this status then I want something different from the $20 or less playline doll. How do they justify the bigger price? The doll looks like a Style Barbie doll and I’m sure the quality is just the same. So why charge $40 for her?

    1. Cause the fashions don’t look like garbage? I don’t know. I haven’t seen the material they’re going to use yet. I remember being really peeved at the Tim Gunn ones. The Yellow Blazer fabric was not so hot. You could see the thread count because it was so low. But I don’t think they’d give us sequins with the Style line.

  7. Thank u for updating, the new barbie look sound exciting !after look wait of waiting now mattel give articulation to their few barbie? The poseable silkstone suspense me….

  8. Sweet tea and Night out actually look like Integrity toy’s ITBE line of dolls that are $80 -99 – a basic doll. But the Barbie jungle, ick. That sickeningly smile. They need to keep that for the kids/playline and Walmart. Colletors want articulation, quality scale fabrics, not that cheapo look.
    I have been collecting with Integrity since 2007and I have to say you get your money’s worth. None of this paying for a membership and then hoping you will get a platinum doll and the website crashes. This is my biggest pet peeve. Then the Tokidoki fiasco with a scavenger hunt! You are already paying $24.99 for a collector membership, the least they could let us do is put the doll in our cart without fishing for it and being put into a waiting room or having to ‘hunt’ for it. Mattel is so out of touch with its collectors, Integrity is not. I have never had this company play games like this when I am ordering or preordering. Mattel still hasn’t learned the art of preorder yet either- they let you order, pay for it, then put it on ‘backorder’ or ‘delay’. I like these two dolls so time will tell. But I would definitely encourage anyone fed up with Mattel to try Integrity toys, you will not be disappointed with the quality.

  9. no Rebecca….
    Sweet tea don’t look like Poppy Parker!
    just Poppy looks like Poppy
    and it is the reason i have a Poppy Parker home….

  10. So STOKED for these! Only possible disappointment… are those hinged knees? Can’t be right? If it’s the ball where you can pivot the chin around, I am thrilled. And they are all dressed so tastefully. wow.

  11. i saw IRL pictures of this doll somewhere on facebook, they have the same body with the articulated Barbie Basics.
    the brunette one looks super cute in the IRL pics. The blonde one has great outfit, love faux leather jacket. but sadly the face looks way too playline… :-(

  12. I love the “Sweet Tea” Barbie. I think she’s gorgeous! I can’t say the same for the “Urban Jungle” Barbie though. I agree with your comment. She does look like a Playline doll. She’s has what appears to be the large, bubble head, with the cheap facial paint. Her eyes look like they’re stickers. I hope she looks better in real life. The “Night Out” doll looks lovely though. I wonder why she’s so much prettier, and looks like she’s be designed to be of a higher quality, even though she’s from the same collector’s line.

    On another note, I’m sick of the Barbie Collector website to sell and advertise playline dolls. That’s what Barbie.com, and Mattel.com are for. I wonder if they’re running out of ideas for their dolls, so to make it seem like they’re still full of creativity, they fill up the space with dolls from their playline. Like many others, I’ve got quite a few ideas as to new dolls they could create and sell to Barbie collectors. They just keep re-releasing the same dolls in new packaging.

  13. I have been out of the loop with collecting barbie from 2011 up to 2015 so I am playing catch up with a few that do excite me just like my “original girls” from 1981-1988. (Not just anybody joins my plastic army even when I was 6!) I too been bitten by the “integrity bug” but to collect as many as I like to had in a timed manner before the X number release runs out is not at all easy if you don’t have enough money to spill!

    The decal eyes on barbie these days on a big number of dolls, both collector and play line since 2014 to now are so bad! I know they are just looking to simplify the process but there is nothing enduring about dead eyes! While I’m on it, that weird greyish purple and frosted fuschia lip colors have had their day and does NOT suit every doll. I’m sure others besides me have carefully re-tinted lips out of those shades if need be.

    I do love the return of eyelashed dolls and the improved rooting process (they weren’t very well done in 1991-1996) and the full switch to no more rubber bending legs I’m guessing is an environmental choice so if a doll does end up in recycling, the plastics don’t have to go to as many multiple plastic separation bins.

    Some have complained about Barbie being less weighty, I have felt a few of these (Sweet tea is lighter than the Dreamhouse gals for example) but at least they are not hollow like in the 80s- early 2000’s . The new plastic bodies are pretty sturdy, I like that they feel like the original barbie bodies pre TnT and bend leg/Miss Barbie, that may have started a bit after model muse bodies came along
