    I think I’m definitely going to go for it. I’ve been checking eBay prices for months, maybe years now and it’s the best price I’ve seen. And condition. I asked the seller if she’d go any lower and she said £150 was the lowest, which I don’t mind paying since I had the money for my birthday so it won’t hurt me financially. I think I just wanted to double check if anyone wise thought the doll was a good price as I’ve only ever brought Pocahontas 17” at retail in store. So this is my first time buying on the second market.

    Thank you both for your reply and advice - much appreciated!

    I hope you can get her soon and enjoy her. Would love to see a picture if you'd like to share one. (once she arrived of course) :)

    My beautiful blue dress Aurora arrived today and I couldn’t be happier! First time buying a doll from eBay as I was lucky to get my beloved first LE Pocahontas doll from in store. And I’d say my first experience buying off second market was a succes! The seller packaged her in two boxes (one of the boxes was her original shipping box) with lots of bubble wrap and extra padding so she was very secure. I even had trouble getting her out the boxes because of how secure she was! You honestly wouldn’t think the doll was pre-owned as she looks brand new!

    I can’t remember her exact COA number as I was too excited to display her next to Poca but she is in the 3,000 out of 4,000.

    I’m very happy to now own my dream dolls. That is until they make an Esmeralda and Kida LE doll :) - I tried to add a photo but each time I did, they didn’t upload. Can someone kindly tell me how to upload photos again as I’ve forgot.

    Thank you so much! I’ll probably rearrange at some point but she makes the perfect new addition.

    I just can’t get over my luck at getting a perfect doll for my first time buying off eBay. No regrets in buying her :)

    My FB group had heard rumors of there being a LE for Clara from the new Nutcracker? Any evidence to that being true or false, or were they actually referring to the Barbie Signature Collection doll Disney released?

    She's pretty, but I seriously wish we'd gotten a Clara instead. JMO though.

    I am guessing Disney did not have much confidence that the Nutcracker would be a box office success(which it is not its a horrible flop for Disney) it was the same with Wrinkle in time barely no merchandise. I am guessing Disney thinks Mary Poppins will fare better at the box office and that dolls of her would sell more. I will be picking her up. As for the Nutcracker I personally did not like the film at all. Aside from Mackenzie Foy as Clara and Kiera Knightly as Sugar Plum and some nice visual FX I just thought the film was not well done or good at all. I agree that Clara and even Sugar plum would have made a nice LE doll from Disney

    That makes sense from a business side. The film itself looks like a trashfire (I personally haven't seen it yet, not sure if I plan to but I have Nutcracker enthusiasts in the family lol so I may) and like another rehash of Tim Burton's Alice which I also wasn't a fan of. However, I looove Clara's purple dress or even her little soldier outfit and I'd love to have an LA doll of either outfit. I'd love to see Misty Copeland in doll form, but it looks like we definitely won't.

    Corret me if I'm wrong (and I haven't seen the film), isn't Misty Copeland already featured as a Nutcracker doll via the Barbie line? Because the one wearing the white ballet outfit looks nearly like her. Agreeing that it would've been fantastic if there had been LE dolls directly from Disney, guess they're holding back after Alice and Wrinkle. I haven't seen the film but I want to. Being a Nutcracker and James Newton Howard fan.

    Disney is selling Sugar Plum, Clara, and the Ballerina (Misty Copeland) from the Barbie Signature collection, yes. Sugar Plum and the Ballerina are beautiful while Clara is just kinda meh. They could have put much more effort into hers than they did, which really disappoints me.

    she looks like a lovely doll. But after purchasing all of that designer dolls and spending an arm and leg for snow i dont think i could afford to buy another doll. She looks a lot like emily blunt

    I think she looks the best compared to other live action dolls. If only the movie would be a blockbuster

    Is anyone here going to be trying for Mary Poppins on Saturday in store? As with Jack and Sally there seems to be little to no buzz about this doll. Not that that is a bad thing id love an easy release like Jack and Sally(when we got to the store for them the manager had forgotten they were released that day) and we were the only people in line. My store still has one more Jack and one more Sally. If anyone is going to be at the Burlington Ma store I will be there.
