I never liked the older Holiday Barbies, they were just so frou frouy. But I came across some more recent Holiday Barbies that I like and this is one of them. Meet Alyissa.
Although I am determined to debox all my dolls and enjoy them, I still hesitate before breaking the box seal. I was able to keep this box intact for storing the doll later, which is a bonus.
The dress, while gorgeous had this under it instead of tulle to give it fullness.
She came in one of those odd shaped boxes with hard plastic inserts on top and bottom. It was a pain in the shorts to get her out and off the liner. I could not save the liner but the box is intact for future storage at least.
I love both these dolls and am happy to have them in my collection. But I don't think they are worth the extra price they charge for these Holiday dolls. I'm pretty sure I can make gowns as beautiful as these. So I don't think there will be anymore from this line in my future.
