Attractiveness of images and a variety of outfits contribute to the fact that doll lovers turn into serious collectors.

Sensational appearance of collection dolls
The first "collectors" of dolls became known in the 70s of the last century. The company-developer of "Mattel" released the first collection of Barbie. Doll collectors had a common name - "Capsule of Time".
After 10 years, Barbie appeared "Festive" - a collection doll in a chic, solemn image, dressed in a lavish ball gown. The exclusive series is still developing and today has more than 10 copies. After the global sales, the company pleased fans of the porcelain model Barbie, called "Blue Rhapsody". Since the 90s, all the outfits and accessories are created by famous world designers for Barbie. Collection doll "Festive" Barbie looks more modern and improved.
Today, Barbie look quite different, not like the dolls of the 20th century. New "breath" in collectivization was made by developers, offering the buyer a new series called "Fashion Model". At auctions, the approximate cost starts at $ 500 per collection. The popularity of this hobby is caused by the unusual manner of presentation of dolls by the company "Mattel". The essence of it is to include the label "label" of a certain color in the name of the collection. All products are conditionally divided into categories that determine the parameters and value of Barbie. Collectible dolls can be distinguished by the color of the label, for example, gold or pink. There are 4 categories and 2 exclusive series.
Those toys that can be purchased at a reasonable price and at virtually any major store have a pink label on the box with Barbie. Collection dolls are represented by several models:
