Brazilian Banana Bonanza Barbie by Bob Mackie

by Alison Rasmussen

Bob Mackie's latest addition to the Barbie family has been announced - $150 retail with a Nove,ber 15, 2012 release date: Brazilian Banana Bonanza Barbie.

Interestingly, she was designed by Robert Best for the Bob Mackie collection, unless this is a typo. She's a Gold Label collector doll, and she's quite cute. I saw a real-life version of her at the National Barbie Collectors Convention, and she's pretty impressive.

She's a Barbie Collector direct exclusive, and you can see additional photos on
