Product and Book Reviews

As we close out 2021, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the best Barbie releases of the year and make some predictions for what we can expect or hope for from the 2022 releases!


1. Extra dolls


Description: The cute and colorful Extra dolls first dropped in late 2020, and since then, we’ve seen four additional waves, including dolls, playsets, a vehicle and mini dolls. These dolls have been popular not just with collectors, but with kids, too. The dolls were also nominated for the 2022 Toy of the Year Awards.


Prediction: We’ve already started seeing dolls from the early 2022 wave, and due to the popularity of the line, it doesn’t seem like it will be discontinued anytime soon. An exciting upcoming addition to the line is a set of fashion packs with clothes and accessories!
