This year, to celebrate the Queen's historic Platinum Jubilee, Barbie is honoring Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch in British history, with a custom-made "Tribute Collection Barbie doll".
Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her 70th anniversary of service, becoming the first British monarch to celebrate a platinum jubilee. Following Her Majesty's coronation in 1953, the Queen's extraordinary reign began with a special sense of duty, humanitarian endeavors, a public life and unity, reflection and community for her nation.
Queen Elizabeth II Barbie doll is instantly recognizable with her elegant ivory gown and blue ribbons adorned with medals. The tiara is based on Queen Mary's fringed tiara, known to have been worn by the Queen on her wedding day. The miniature medallions on the sash are inspired by royal family orders. The pink ribbon was given to the Queen by her father George VI and the light blue one by her grandfather George V. The silver brooch, fastened beneath the sash at waist level, depicts the Garter Star Brooch - the badge of the highest and most exclusive order in the UK ('Order of the Garter').
Since 1959, the Barbie brand has been dedicated to unleashing the limitless potential in every girl and constantly reminding her that anything in life is possible - a message that has never been more relevant than it is today. Last year, Barbie launched the Tribute Collection to honor visionaries for their incredible achievements, impact and legacy as trailblazers.
Queen Elizabeth II Barbie doll is presented in a box inspired by Buckingham Palace styles, featuring an ornate 3D die-cut border that frames the doll. The interior lining is decorated with images of her throne and the famous red carpet of the throne room. The box is printed with a coat of arms logo and a badge commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne.
The Queen Elizabeth II doll will be available from April 21, 2022, ahead of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend of April 2-5. Sold June 2022.
