Easter Barbie dolls - past and present: a series on Easter Barbies - Nashville Doll Collecting Examiner





Easter Barbie dolls - past and present: a series on Easter Barbies



The first time Barbie officially celebrated Easter was in 1959 when Mattel issued the vintage Barbie Easter Parade outfit which featured a black
coat over a colorful print sheath dress. The following year, Mattel
continued to make the dress without the coat.



The next time an Easter-themed Barbie doll appeared was not until 1993 when Mattel made the Easter Fun Barbie doll. Barbie wore a white dress with a colorful Easter egg print and came with stickers to decorate eggs inside the box.

Starting in 2001 with the Flower Mania Barbie, Mattel
appears to have had a hard time committing to the Easter theme. From
that point on, some years Mattel would produce an Easter Barbie, and
some years only a spring-themed doll. I am including just the Easter
Barbie dolls in this article.



This is part three of Easter Easter Barbie dolls - past and present: a series on Easter Barbies and follows Easter Barbie dolls from 1993 to 1999.
