Toys R Us Canada: 40% Off Barbie Collector 2014 Holiday Doll - Now $30 (Reg. $50)
Can you hear it already? "Mommy, daddy, I want Barbie for Christmas"! If you're the parent(s) of a young one, then you know it's coming and since Christmas is officially less than 3 months away, now is the time to start shopping for presents. Luckily, Barbie Collector 2014 holiday doll is now on sale for just $30 at Toys R Us. She was originally priced at $49.99, which means that you will be savings 40% off the original price but only during this week-end.
Every year, a new holiday-themed Barbie doll is released with a different look. Her dress, hairstyle, jewellery and even her positioning in the box all differ year to year. While last year's Barbie doll wore a white snowflake dress and very blinged-out earrings, this year's Barbie doll is instead wearing a red sweetheart dress with a gold statement necklace. There is a bow at her waist and the dress is slightly lifted at the bottom, revealing gold accents.
If my little girl was old enough, I would definitely take advantage of this deal as I, myself, grew up playing with Barbies. The recommended age is for 6 to 10 year olds but it really depends on each individual child.
Since this Barbie doll is a collector's edition, you can expect her to come in special packaging. So, for all those of you who collect dolls or even Barbies in general, this one is definetly a must-have. In fact, although there are no reviews on Toys R Us' site for this doll yet, here's a review I found on Amazon:
Simply Beautiful! I have many of the Holiday Barbie's. This one is one of the most beautiful. She has hair a wonderful golden shade of blond, slightly darker than the usual very pale blond. I was also pleasantly surprised to see the gold glitter eye shadow on her eyelids that make her extra special.
Speaking of which, Toys R Us' deal is currently the best one you can find out there with both Amazon and Sears listing her at the full price of $49.99. You can take a gamble and wait until Black Friday or perhaps even Boxing Day to see if she will drop in price but considering she's at a 40% discount right now, the chances are slim to none, especially since the lowest price we saw for the 2013 holiday Barbie was $35 last year, but you never know!
As Toys R Us ships orders over $25 for free, you're also sure to get this doll shipped at no additional cost.
