I grew up playing with Barbie dolls. I started playing with Barbies when I was 8-years-old with my younger sister, and I didn’t stop playing with them until I was 14 or 15. We had a huge collection of Barbie dolls, including a big doll house, a Barbie boat, her pick up truck, her convertible and huge collection of clothes. I remember even packing her stuff and taking her along with us on trips. It resulted in hours and hours of fun playing dress up. I must admit, collecting her clothes and accessories was quite expensive. I remember us only getting new Barbie stuff at our birthday and Christmas.
I was browsing through the web today looking for some cool toys, and I noticed an article about the most expensive Barbie dolls. I was amazed at the price of some of the limited-edition dolls that are in existence. The doll in the main image of this article (above) was commissioned by Centuri in Australia, and is priced at AUD$600,000! The Barbie and the Diamond Castle, adorned with 44 round-cut stones including 318 real diamonds on her attire, is priced at USD$94,800. All of her accessories, including the tiara, slippers, earrings, necklace, bracelet and the ring are made out of diamonds and white gold. Last but not the least is the De Beers 40th Anniversary Barbie, which is priced at USD$85,000. Her gown has 160 diamonds complemented by white gold miniature jewelry. There are others on the list, and if you want to read more, you can check it out here. I have included pictures of the three most expensive ones. These dolls look exquisite!
