Mattel has created a line of dolls to celebrate the release of Disney’s live-action film, CINDERELLA. These dolls are amazing and collectors are going to scoop them up! What makes them unique is that they’ve redone the face molds of the dolls to appear like the faces of the actresses in the Disney’s new CINDERELLA live-action film. They’ve also recreated the dresses from the film and they’re stunning. All of the dolls are standard 11″ Barbie dolls so their clothing and accessories can be interchanged with other Barbies.
Disney CINDERELLA Barbie Royal Ball Doll by Mattel (2015)
I’m love the whole line of new new Mattel Barbie and Disney Cinderella Dolls, and it’s hard to choose a favorite. This new Cinderella has been made to look like Lily James and I’m guessing it will be the runaway top seller. It’s Model CGT56 / UPC 0887961072525 and was released on 2-1/15.
Disney Cinderella Barbie Wedding Day Doll by Mattel (2015)
This is the 2nd doll in the new Mattel / Disney Cinderella Live-Action Movie doll collection and as a reformed Disney and Cinderella Barbie collector, I almost purchased this doll. She’s stunning! The upgraded face mold to match Lily James and the details on the wedding dress had my “buy button” finger twitching! She’s Model CGT55 / EAN 0087961072488.

How to Become a Successful Disney Barbie Doll Collector
If you’re thinking of monetizing on the craze, know that doll collectors are notoriously finicky when it comes to their dolls. The will exam the face and hands of every single doll on the shelf until they find one that’s perfectly painted. They’ll also examine the hair and clothing, but face and hands are key.
There’s also the issue of the boxes. Collected dolls, though made for play, must have pristine boxes. No bumped corners, and absolutely no wrinkles or creases anywhere on the box or in the cellophane. Price tags adhered to the box takes away from its value as well.
If this all sounds a bit much for a child’s toy, then buy them because you love them and want to enjoy them, and by all means let your children play with them! But if you’re hoping for a return on your investment, choose your doll wisely and then store her intact in her box, inside another box to keep it from getting damaged, and then store in a location that doesn’t have a lot of temperature and humidity changes. That’s NOT the garage or attic and likely somewhere safer like under your bed where the temperature and humidity is kept at an optimal level for you, which means your doll will be persevered better as well.
