What It Is
It's the 150th anniversary of New York City's iconic toy store FAO Schwarz, and Barbie is getting in on the celebration. The FAO Schwarz 150th Anniversary Barbie Soldier Doll is dressed in the iconic toy soldier uniform worn by the store's greeters. This limited edition Barbie pays tribute to the store in a red crimson dress accented in black and gold and paired with arm cuffs, a black hat, and boots. Barbie also holds her hand up in salute.
Why It’s Fun
Much like FAO Schwarz, Barbie has remained a constant icon for toy lovers, young and old. And for both Barbie collectors and fans of the toy store, this pairing is a great way to celebrate FAO Schwarz's history and Barbie's own unwaivering status as a premiere fashion doll for all girls.
Who It’s For
This doll is part of the Pink Label Collection of dolls targeted toward the earliest Barbie collector and are graded for ages 6 and up. They're ideal for girls or adults who are starting or who have doll collections.
What To Be Aware Of
This is a limited-edition doll, available exclusively at FAO Schwarz and Toys "R" Us.
While the doll comes with a stand, some collectors may choose to keep the doll in its box to keep its value from decreasing.
