Mattel and the WB have teamed up with several companies to release some cool and fun collectibles ahead of the movie. If you're a fan of over-the-top kitsch and camp, this summer is going to be terrible for your wallet. It's already been hard for my own!

On July 21, 2023, Greta Gerwig's Barbie hits theaters. I've personally been looking forward to this movie since it was announced. As a child of the 1980s and 1990s, I had an extensive collection of Barbie dolls and accessories, and I'm incredibly excited to see Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling bring the iconic Barbie and Ken to life.

To promote what looks to be one hell of a summer movie (alongside Oppenheimer, which opens the same day), Warner Brothers has released a handful of fun trailers, including one of my favorite teaser trailers of all time;

Little People Barbie: The Movie Special Edition Collector's Set

Fisher-Price's Little People have been a toy staple for decades, and within the last handful of years, the company has started to target the adult collector's market.

You can find Little People sets of KISS, The Office, The Golden Girls, RuPaul, and more. These adorable toys can still be played with by younger fans, but they are ideal for older collectors.

Some sets, such as the Lord of the Rings six-figure set, resell on eBay for between $60 - $100. This Barbie set includes Barbie, Ken, President Barbie, and Gloria.

Impala Lightspeed Inline Barbie Skate

While skates might not be the first thing you think of when you think of 'Barbie collection', these skates are replicas of the one's Barbie and Ken wear in the movie. While the website is completely sold out, the skates are going for double on eBay.

Chances are, once Barbie fever dies down these will become more affordable. You can even match these with the Protective Set, also inspired by the movie!

Barbie Aldo Collection

Shoes and Barbie go hand in hand. Aldo, a mall staple for many years, is releasing a line of Barbie shoes and accessories later this summer. The line includes varying shades of pink shoes, handbags, and maybe even jewelry. The light pink Barbie platform heel will likely be the it item from the collection, and I have no doubt this shoe will see a price spike on eBay once it's released.

We have seen after-market prices on shoes drop considerably this year, so if you miss out on this shoe at the release, you might be able to find it for cheaper in a few months.

Barbie x Cakeworthy Collection 

Cakeworthy has been on my radar for a few years thanks to their Disney line. Their clothing is on the more expensive side, but you absolutely get a quality item worthy of the higher price tag. For this summer's most fantastic plastic movie, Cakeworthy has dropped their new Barbie line, complete with clothing, bags, and even post-it notes. Out of everything in this collection, I believe the Barbie Box Purse will be the big collector item. We've seen in the past just how popular Loungefly backpacks can be, and this unique purse is no exception!

Barbie Movie Doll

There would be no Barbie movie without the one that started it all, the Barbie Doll. Based on Margot Robbie's portrayal of Barbie, this doll has her perfectly pink gingham dress with matching accessories, and unlike the dolls we grew up with, this Barbie is very poseable. Barbie dolls can be extremely collectible, even the new ones. While it might take some time for this doll to see a price increase, she is still worthy of any collection!

There are loads of Barbie collectibles coming out this summer, so check back to see what other adorable Barbie products might just fit your collection!
