Ever wonder what happened to all those Statue of Liberty Barbies? Well, they are available again--from The Stature of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, according to this press release:
CELEBRATE 125 YEARS OF LIBERTY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON WITH STATUE OF LIBERTY BARBIE®
Proceeds Benefit Projects at Liberty & Ellis Islands
New York, NY (November 30, 2011) — Are you trying desperately to find Statue of Liberty Barbie® to give this holiday season in honor of the Statue’s 125th birthday? You’re in luck! The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation has just announced it has refreshed its supply of Statue Barbies in their online gift shop at www.ellisisland.org. Not only does the Foundation offer Barbie donned in her patina-inspired gown and carrying a clutch inscribed with July 4, 1776 from the Statue’s tablet, but it pairs her with a handcrafted three-dimensional brass ornament, “Lady Liberty’s 125th.” The perfect gift for lovers of these two legendary ladies! Statue of Liberty Barbie® is offered for $39.99 and together with the 2011 collectible ornament is just $64.99, a savings of $5 if both were purchased separately. Proceeds help support the Foundation’s non-profit mission at the Statue and Ellis Island. Details at www.ellisisland.org.
