Holiday Barbie dolls are valued from $35 to as high as $750. Older Holiday Barbie dolls are worth more than newer releases. All prices are for Holiday Barbie dolls that are considered "Never Removed From Box," or NRFB in collectors' terms.

Holiday Barbie dolls were first released in 1988. That Holiday Barbie, featuring a red dress, is valued at an estimated $550 to $750. The 1989 to 1991 versions are valued at around $200, while those from 1992 and 1993 range from $100 to $200. Holiday Barbie dolls from 1994 and 1995 have an estimated value of $45 to $70 each.

The Holiday Barbie dolls from 1996 to the modern era are valued at slightly more than their average retail price, but are still highly sought after collectors' items. Each year's Holiday Barbie ranges from an estimated value of $35 to $75. Two exceptions to the price range are the 2004 and 2005 Holiday Barbie dolls. 2004's release was offered in a green or burgundy dress. The Barbie in green is valued at $75, while the much more rare burgundy clad Barbie can be worth as much as $225. 2005 also saw the release of two different color gowns: purple and forest green. The Barbie wearing purple is worth about $70, and the one in forest green is valued at $220.
