Item #: X8420
Bonjour! Barbie doll warmly welcomes you to France, a country rich in tradition and famous for its fashion and food. Look beyond the cities, and you'll find a countryside teeming with lush landscapes that have inspired artists for generations!
"A Taste of World Cultures...With Barbie!
The Dolls of the World® Collection is one the longest-running series in Barbie doll history. Since 1980, more than 200 dolls – even eclipsing the number of Barbie career-themed dolls – have been created. Representing six continents and nearly 100 countries, this popular line of dolls puts Barbie in the spotlight as both a fashion icon and a globetrotting jetsetter.
A First for the Barbie Dolls
This France Barbie Doll isn't the first in the Dolls of the World collection to represent the country in style. The dolls before her, however, were inspired by the culture and landmarks of the cities. This 2013 France Barbie Doll is the first to evoke the simple beauty of the French countryside, of quiet villages and quaint cafes, and landscapes that have inspired world-famous artists and given birth to some of the world's greatest works of art.
A New Look for Dolls of the World
France Barbie Doll is also part of a classic travelogue-inspired update to the beloved series, thanks to Barbie Collector Designer Linda Kyaw. While adding a sense of breezy fun and fashion flair to the line, even the Dolls of the World packaging got a makeover. The dolls now come in travel-trunk-inspired doll boxes, with a space for keeping small travel keepsakes with the doll.
