X: Barbie Extra


#AtoZChallenge 2024 letter X

The ever-tricky letter X! This is the most I could find for this one.

Here is the description of the Barbie Extra dolls from the link above:

Barbie® Extra dolls rock bold fashions and bright colors, and they make big statements! Each Barbie® doll has their own unique style that's playful and over the top. And their pets -- each different and all adorable -- have tons of personality, too! Barbie® Extra lets kids explore self-expression through style and offers an exciting fashion and styling play experience with posable dolls. They are all about having fun with fashion with glitter, gummy bears, emojis and stand-out hair -- bringing EXTRA vibes wherever they go. Each sold separately, subject to availability. Dolls cannot stand alone. Colors and decorations may vary.

  • When it comes to fashion, Barbie® Extra dolls have a 'more is more' attitude, featuring 15 pieces that include clothing and fashion accessories, as well as a pet and pet accessories.
  • ​Play out Barbiecore style with the dolls that inspired the trend.​​​
  • A fun and playful look showcases her confident style with pink, teddy bear-print denim shorts paired with a matching jacket with extra-furry sleeves.
  • Barbie® doll's accessories -- an ice cream cone clutch, Barbie® nameplate ring, heart-shaped sunglasses and lots of jewelry, including a charm necklace -- add personal expression and unexpected moments of storytelling fun.
  • The pet bulldog figure is oh-so-EXTRA, too, with a removable bear-themed beanie, studded collar and adorably grumpy expression.
  • Barbie® Extra dolls make a great gift for kids 3 to 10 years old, especially those who love to be extra themselves!

A line of Barbie Extra Mini dolls was also made:

The line only lasted two years (2021-2023), making it one of the more obscure Barbie lines.

Well done on this post! It's usually such a stretch to get X and Z. What luck that Barbie had Extras!

I just "discovered" your blog today, via the A to Z challenge. After doing a quick perusal through your posts, I think I'll have to go back through more slowly. I had a few Barbies (the OLD ones) when I was growing up, then passed them on to my daughter. Good job with your "x" post! I'm a bit stuck on "x." LOL

All Barbies are extra, but some are Extra extra (or is that extra Extra?). How fun!

Those are cute. Feedly asked if this post was about the fashion industry. I guess it kind of is?
