Mattel Princess of the Korean Court Barbie Doll

Inspired by Korea’s historically traditional costume, the Princess of the Korean Court wears a hanbok in the beautiful colors of spring. It is customary to celebrate Sol Nal, New Year’s Day, on the first day of spring, which is also the first day of the first month of the new lunar year. It is a happy day of joyous celebration and honors the heritage of the princess and her family. This made a very nice addition to my Dolls of the World collection. One of my most favorite. This doll is very beautiful and I love her long braided hair.
