Bill Bam's Collectibles is pleased to announce that we are now an authorized Mattel Barbie Doll dealer. Although we have had much success
in the past selling Barbies bought from Mattel's major distributors, being able to purchase direct now means we will get the new releases much quicker and we will be able to offer them on our site at a much more competitive price.
Barbie dolls have been a collecting icon since 1959, many fads have come and gone (beanies, furbies, and many more) but Barbie remains a
strong steady seller. A key factor in the selling of Barbie's these days is the fact that Mattel no longer sells the limited edtion dolls to the mass market retails such as Toys R Us, Walmart, Target, and KB Toys. These dolls are being produced in much lower quantities and only being distributed by speicalty retailers such as Bill Bam's Collectibles and specialty doll shops. Mattel will continue to sell the low end dolls and "Pink Label" dolls to these mass market retailers but not the limited editions.
The new release Barbie dolls sell well year-round as the avid collectors purchase quickly to avoid missing out as dolls sell out. Mattel will generally sell out during the pre-order process so we cannot always reorder. To insure that you have every opportunity to take advantage of this program we will be sure to announce to you all details as soon as we have them available so that you can update your datafeeds and product
The following are historically the best selling Barbie themes. The annual Christmas Holiday editions, the Celebrity dolls, Pop Culture themes, and the Designer themed dolls.
