One more post for the day before I call it an evening:
BarbieCollector.com has previewed its first BFC™ exclusive doll, Ekaterina™, available for $99.99 and free shipping to new 2011 club members only, beginning February 9, 2011. If purchased in February, she will ship for free. She is a Platinum Label® doll, and no more than 3,000 will be produced.
The cost to join the the Barbie Fan Club™ is $24.95 plus tax, and it opens at 9 am, PST, on February 9. You get lots of great perks, in addition to three other club-exclusive dolls, including up $80 in Online Shop rewards ($20 per calendar quarter). It's a pretty good deal for those who love Barbie.
