World’s Most Expensive Barbie


A Barbie dressed in pink diamonds has been valued at an $550,000, making it the most expensive Barbie in the world.

Signed by television director Stephen Cantor, it’s the necklace that commands the fee but it still marks a landmark moment for the iconic toy.

The Barbie phenomenon began in the 50s when the wife of one of the Mattel founders saw their daughter playing with a paper doll and realised that a life-like version would be a lot more enjoyable. Launched in 1959, the Barbie has never looked back.
