Barbie Dolls are not just for little girls, there is a huge collectible market for Barbie Lovers throughout the world. Barbie turned 50 in 2009 and believe it or not the 29ths annual Barbie convention sold out in 2 days. Barbie lovers from 13-80 and all over the globe came to celebrate Barbies Birthday. One of the most coveted Barbies To won is Mattels’ 50th anniversary doll worth a whopping $50,000. Barbie is decked out in 34 carats worth of white and black diamonds, which sparkle down to her heels, complete with a 24-karat-gold chain bracelet on her left wrist.
Mattel estimates there are over 100,000 active Barbie Collectors in the world with 90% being women of the average age of 40. The average collector spends $1000 per year on collecting Barbies. (source wikipedia)
