Tokidoki Barbie Owners Cash In on eBay
Just last week, the internet was abuzz with news regarding the release of Mattel's latest, and perhaps most cutting-edge, plastic persona: the Tokidoki Barbie.
While the newest member of the Mattel family raised controversy among parents for her bad girl ensemble (equipped with leopard leggings and a pink wig) and, more concerning, upper-body ink display, she doesn't seem to have the same effect on collectors and retailers, for whom the Tokidoki Barbie is proving a Jesse James/Kat Von D-worthy match made in toy heaven.
As of today, the sold out Tokidoki Barbie, which originally retailed for $50, is already selling upward of $300 (I saw bids as high as $375) on eBay, which has become the official second-stop shop for the scarcely supplied and highly demanded (Missoni for Target being the latest collection to draw serious PayPal blood).
Track Tokidoki Barbie on eBay, and live the latest Barbie dream with these punk-rock-meets-plastic finds.
