Barbie® Lunar New Year Doll Starts a New Holiday Tradition!

By Allen Voivod

Get ready to celebrate the Lunar New Year with Barbie®! In case it’s new to you, Lunar New Year is a fifteen-day celebration that begins with the first new moon and ends with the first full moon of the lunar calendar. To honor the history and beauty of the holiday, we’re proud to present the Barbie® Lunar New Year™ Doll!

On New Year’s Eve – as in, the evening before the Lunar New Year, which falls on February 12th for 2021 – families gather to celebrate with food, fireworks, and time-honored traditions. The holiday is filled with festive performances and lucky red decorations, which symbolize prosperity and abundance. That’s a fabulous way to kick off a brand-new year!

Creating an elegant silhouette for the occasion, Barbie® Lunar New Year™ Doll wears a red satin cheongsam featuring a peony print, symbolizing prosperity and good fortune. Her dress is finished with delicate teal trim and Chinese knot style buttons, while golden and teal tassel earrings, a stylish bracelet, and chic heels complete her look.

NRFB collectors will be thrilled with the sophisticated packing, which is ideal for display in its own right. But should you want to de-box this doll, she comes with a doll stand to create the perfect presentation. You’ll also find a Certificate of Authenticity in the box as well.

The Barbie® Lunar New Year™ Doll is part of our Black Label® series of dolls and will retail for $50.00 in the online shop. When she debuts, there will be a limit of two (2) dolls per person, so as many Barbie® fans as possible can add her to their collections. (This limit is subject to change at a later date.)

Whether you’re starting a new tradition, giving her as a gift, or you simply love the look of this doll (and seriously, who could blame you?), don’t wait until a new moon phase begins to get the Barbie® Lunar New Year™ Doll in the online shop. She’s bound to find a special place in collections all year long – or at least while supplies last!

I bought 2 from Walmart and end up returning them. For $50 , I thought it’s little expensive, she just doesn’t seem too impressive for me to keep her for that price.

First time I saw this doll and I fell inlove with her! :classic_love: Her face is so pretty especially the eyes and that sensual red lips... melt my heart! I'm pretty sure this is one of the best dolls this year.

As a Korean Barbie collector, I hope we could get a traditional Korean doll at some point. We celebrate Lunar New Year too!!

Pretty face. If she wasn't pixelated and had an articulated body, I would buy her for sure.
