It’s a Barbie Christmas! The iconic, 11-inch doll, named after Barbie inventor Ruth Handler’s daughter Barbara, made its debut at the American International Toy Fair in New York City on March 9, 1959, which makes Barbie one of the most beloved Pisces in pop culture (next to Rihanna). And given the Barbie movie’s box office takeover, it’s safe to say that Barbie season is carrying over into the holidays.

In honor of Barbie’s undeniable impact, we put together a list of sold-out, hard-to-find Barbies to give as holiday gifts. Vintage Barbies are big business and can fetch tens of thousands of dollars depending on the condition, the rarity of the doll and when it was released. So, celebrate the holiday season with celebrity Barbies that are perfect for music lovers and collectors alike.
