Most Expensive Barbie: $302,500 For A Doll?

With Christmas just around the corner we know that the Barbie doll will still be popular with you girls — although not certain if parents would be willing to pay the price of the latest version. Stefano Canturi was commissioned by Mattel to design and produce the worlds most expensive Barbie.

Parents can breath a sigh of relief, as only one has been made. The doll went for a staggering $302,500, although expectations had been higher. What made this doll so expensive was her jewelry, a chocker that contained a one-carat square-cut pink diamond.

According to BBC News, the previous record was set back in 2006 when the Barbie doll went for $17,091 — why would anyone want to own a doll worth that much?

However, let us not take away the fact that all the money earned from the sale of the doll will be given to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This is something very close to my heart, as this horrible disease has affected me as well as many of our readers in one way or another.
