1993 Holiday Barbie - Got it Both in and OUT of Box
However, I'm not just looking to grab ANY Barbie out of the box, I require they have everything that they came with IN the Box, including their little stand and even their shoes and brush. This little beauties out of the box still carry a good monetary value, but not without each and every little accessory.
The reason I'm looking to obtain one outside the box is mainly to defeat temptation. My daughter LOVES her Barbies on her shelves, but I know one day it's going to get the point where she's going to want to take them out... with one outside the Box, she can still fluff their dresses and take care of them (gently) so it'll help remove that guilty feeling of wanting to open the boxes.
I thought this was a fair way of handling things as she gets older and has girlfriends come over who might be tempted to touch as well. I know when I went to some of my friend's homes, they had valuables on their walls, porcelain collections, etcs and it was very hard not to run up and do the 'Oooo's and 'Aaah's and then pick them up.
Accidents happen, so this seems to be the best way of avoiding any accidents from ever happening!
So I picked up a 1993 in and out of the box.
She looks very similar to the 1988 version, but with a few very obvious differences, including the fact that her dress is layered instead of one big fluff! She was ordered about the same time as the 2011 so she should be here any day, both of them should, so my daughter's looking forward to this new addition and the beginning of the side collection!
