When this Charlotte Olympia Giftset was released at Barbie Collector last fall, it sold out in minutes. I didn't even try to get one. A "Gold Label' Barbie means that less than 10,000 are produced. In this case, the box states "No more than 2,700 Worldwide". In Barbie terms, that's a truly limited edition!
Charlotte Olympia Barbie immediately started its eBay run, selling for up to 4x its original retail cost of $125. I gave up hope. The prices have come down quite a bit, but the average is still almost double.
Earlier this month, I thought I would do a random eBay search. You cannot imagine how excited I was to find a seller offering her at original retail price. Yes, dear reader, that's right! I actually bought a NRFB Charlotte Olympia Barbie for $125. And it actually arrived in perfect condition! I was almost afraid to open it.
Here is a photo of the Barbie. She uses the "Shani" body which is like a twist n turn waist doll with legs that click at the knee. The head looks like s silkstone head! She is quite a lovely doll.
This is an exceptional giftset with a lot of fun play time! Had I been able to secure one last fall, it would have easily made it into my top 10 of 2016. If you can find one at retail, jump on it! It's worth every penny!
