2016 Holiday Barbie Pictures Released!!

Although she's not on the shelves yet, the pictures have surfaced about the 2016 Holiday Barbie.

Originally, Mattel had placed these photos on their Facebook page, but then quickly removed them (or so I read) but they are confirmed the official 2016 Holiday Barbie...

Now, given that the Barbie hasn't 'ACTUALLY' been released, there may be some changes when it finally is released (which I'm expecting will be sometime in early or late July).  I'm actually quite excited not to just see the classic Red, Green, Silver and Gold that they've been doing for the last 7 years...  The last time I saw some 'color' aside from the classic Christmas colors was in the 2009 Holiday Barbie, where she was PINK.  This time we have some really beautiful blues, and I assume the Brunette will be one of the 'special exclusive' releases to either K-Mart or Wal-Mart.

Now, I will admit, they look a bit more plain than I expected, but they certainly are a breath of fresh air!  I am also very excited to see how they will do up the boxes this year for these beautiful Holiday Barbies.  Given the variation of colors of their dresses I'm expecting either an all clear box like the 2009, or maybe a white box to fit each of them.

I will wait for the 'Final release' of the Barbies before adding her 'officially' to my list of Holiday Barbies, but it shouldn't be much longer before they go on sale (as they typically do in July).

As soon as they have them on the shelves, I'll make sure to let you all know here, happy hunting!
