What It Is
Mattel and color authority company Pantone teamed up to showcase Barbie in her favorite (and signature) shade of pink Pantone 219. The doll wears a unique gown inspired by the color with a leather bustier and a skirt made of 219 small fabric Pantone 219 color chips. A flower on her lapel is also made out of the fabric color chips. The soles of Barbie's white peep-toe pumps are also painted in Pantone 219. The doll also wears black and silvery bangles to complete the look. A doll stand is included.
Why It’s Fun
Most Barbie dolls are geared toward little girls, but no Barbie fan ever really outgrows her. Barbie collecting is a huge hobby enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of grown-up Barbie fans around the world. And with the Pink in Pantone Barbie doll, adult fans can celebrate Barbie's fashion heritage and her never-changing fondness for the color pink.
Who It’s For
Pink in Pantone Barbie is for the adult collector.
What To Be Aware Of
This is a limited-edition doll. There are no more than 15,100 Pink in Pantone Barbie dolls worldwide.
Pantone colors are used to provide consistency for colors used in design for a brand. Pantone 219 is the "official" color of all things Barbie, used in logos, packaging, and promotional materials. This doll is a whimsical way to celebrate both the color and the Barbie brand.
While the doll comes with a stand, some collectors may choose to keep the doll in its box to keep its value from decreasing.
