I picked up a 1988 happy holidays barbie the other day, but it is different from all the others I have found online. I think it is an canadian or european version. It looks identical with the exception of it doesnt have the poinsettia on the front of the box and it says "Barbie Gran Gala" and "Barbie Passion" in addition to "happy holidays" on the front. Also, all the wording and product info (the small print) is in several different laguages. Any thoughts as to whether this makes it more or less valuable? It is NRFB

Hi, I have the exact same barbie you are describing. I won this in QLD myself in 1988 when I was 6 and never opened the box. Did you find out any more info about this barbie?
My box is a little worse for wear after all these years of moving however could be fixed.
