DOLLS PRICE GUIDE: Modern Barbie Dolls


DOLL:   Barbie as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.

SIZE:   11 1/2"



CHARACTERISTICS OF DOLL:  Doll wears thick braids, and carries Toto, her dog.  Also comes with a plastic basket.  Doll wears red ruby slippers that light up when you press doll down, and doll says "There is No Place Like Home" AND "Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."

PRICE$10-30.00, Doll is readily available, and is part of a set of 5 including Glinda, The Scarecrow, The Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Man.&nbsp.; Set is good value for the money.  There are also three Kelly and Tommy "Munchkins" available..  

I am finding them at thrift stores.

COMMENTS:  This Barbie is from the play (or "pink box" line of dolls.  There have been two other "Dorothy" Barbie dolls--one from the Hollywood Legends collection which is much rarer than this doll (but only selling for approximately $60 to 80 NRFB on eBay right now; the doll was MUCH higher before this doll was released) and a porcelain Dorothy.  The outfit on the Hollywood Legends Dorothy is much less shiny, and there is a frilly petticoat visible under the gingham dress.  The basket in the earlier Dorothy is straw, and this one is plastic.    This doll is a cross-over collectible, and also collected by Wizard of Oz collectors.

MARKET REPORT: This doll has not increased significantly in value since its release.
