2011 I Love Lucy Barbie Doll Collector Set | I Love Lucy Barbie ‘The Diet’ with Lucy and Ricky
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the I Love Lucy show, and to end the Lucy collector edition series, comes the final I Love Lucy Barbie doll. Mattel began I Love Lucy dolls in 1998, and released over 25 dolls.
The 2011 I Love Lucy Barbie doll is based on the 4th episode, “The Diet.” In the show, with an original air date of October 29, 1951, Lucy talks with friends about weight. They all have gained weight since marrying, yet Lucy insists she weighs the same.
In typical Lucy fashion, she later realizes she has gained over 20 pounds, and vows to get rid of it. After she accomplishes this, she sure looks magnificent in the emerald green evening gown, with Ricky by her side.
Lucy and Ricky Barbie Dolls
Lucy wears an emerald green gown with her hair in a bun, and long silver earrings. At the crown of her head, her feathered hat shows off 2 light green features. A cream colored 50′s style undershirt ruffles from the neck and sleeves of her sparkling green jacket.
A separate pleated skirt, with a high v line and a sparking bow complete the dress. Her high heel shoes and sparkling handbag match perfectly, as she steps forward, proud of her new look.
Ricky at her side sports a two piece black suit, with a white dress shirt. He wears a black bow tie, and carries his signature beige straw hat. He wears black dress shoes to complete the look.
2011 I Love Lucy Collector Set Packaging
The 2011 I Love Lucy Barbie packaging is a perfect match to the 1950′s style. The black and silver box is decorated with a big red “I Love Lucy” heart, and “60th anniversary” in the left corner. The background behind Lucy and Ricky shows the nightclub dance floor, and the band gearing up to play behind the checkered floor.
