The Carol Spencer Holiday Barbie was a 1994 special edition prototype that has been estimated to cost $999, but is currently on sale on eBay for a whopping $5,000. Carol Spencer was a designer for Mattel since the 1960s, hence the prototype name and the incredible value.
A standard Barbie doll is 11.5in tall , equating to 5ft 9in at 1/6 ‘playscale’. Barbie’s vital statistics have been estimated by Yale academics at 36in (bust), 18in (waist) and 33 in (hips).
Among the rooms was a nursery for a Barbie baby, which posed a problem: Barbie is technically not married and, technically, she can never have a baby. “They don’t want her to have a baby. They don’t want to tarnish the image of Barbie at all,” said Robin Goglas, a Barbie collector from Clermont.

This toy was very difficult to put together as it did not come with instructions and because the plastic appeared warped in places and would not fit together properly.
Naturally collectors will be willing to pay a lot more money for a doll that is in mint condition compared to a doll of the same model that is damaged beyond repair. The doll will be especially valuable if it is in its original box and comes with all its original accessories.
Markings: Barbie can be somewhat easy to identify because they all have markings on their right buttocks, feet and the back of their heads. Sometimes you’ll find marks on the stomach which is usually just the mold number and not the year the doll was produced.
The most valuable holiday Barbies are from the years 1988-1992. Dolls that are NIB (new in box) from those years sell for between $40-$200. A set of NRFB (never removed from box) dolls from 1988 to 1998 can sell for around $1,000. Holiday Barbies ranging from 1995 to today are not worth as much money as older editions.
