Mattel is now accepting applications for the 2012 Collector Advisory Panel (CAP). Since its inception in 1997, the Collector Advisory Panel has provided a special opportunity for open communication with the collecting community and our dedicated Barbie® Collector team here at Mattel headquarters.
The 2012 panel will be made up of eight collectors who will regularly participate in surveys and idea sharing about Barbie® doll collecting throughout the year. Once selected, the panelists will enjoy an extra special CAP Orientation Day hosted at the Mattel headquarters in Southern California, at Mattel’s expense. The annual CAP Orientation Day is currently scheduled for Monday April 30th, 2012. In order to be considered for CAP, you must be available to attend the all day orientation on April 30th in El Segundo, factoring in travel time the day before and after the event.
Click here to download your application form and instructions. And remember — creativity counts! Your application should reflect your passion for collecting and your love of Barbie, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to your presentation style.
Please note: The Collector Advisory Panel is intended to represent hobbyists and fans only — individuals who collect and love Barbie for the pure joy of it. For this reason, dealers, storeowners, and writers for collector publications are not eligible to participate. You must be 18 years or older to apply.
All completed application materials must be postmarked by Friday March 23, 2012. The selected panelists will be notified on or around Friday April 6, 2012.
We look forward to hearing from you soon. Best of luck!
