The Barbie dolls released in a limited series, made especially for the 70th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, were sold out in three seconds, the Guardian newspaper writes.
“John Lewis reported that it sold out all the goods in stock in three seconds, and most sellers on eBay hope to sell a sought-after collector’s item at least double the price,” the publication writes.
The dolls were sold for 95 pounds.
The doll has become one of the last souvenirs to celebrate the platinum anniversary of the reign of the British Queen, which will be widely celebrated in early June. The doll’s face practically repeats the face of the monarch, and her outfit in the form of an ivory dress with a blue ribbon looks like the dresses that her majesty prefers to wear for official photos. As a curiosity, it can be noted that instead of white gloves on the doll’s hands, the manufacturers made mittens.
Doll manufacturer Mattel has confirmed that the limited collection has already been sold out in the UK, but hinted that a new batch of goods may arrive.
