Eden Starling is the main protagonist in Barbie in A Christmas Carol. She is played by Barbie. She’s voiced by Morwenna Banks and her singing voice is by Melissa Lyons.


Eden is a famous singer in the Victorian era of England. However, Eden is very cruel and mean to her employees and never in a good spirit. After her performance singing O Christmas Tree, she was furious finding that her tea and crumpets are not there, causing her to be enraged. Her best friend, Catherine, supposedly served her, but she was busy making costumes. Eden is always in a bitter mood because she was raised by her Aunt, who would always tell her: "In a selfish world, the selfish succeed." Eden was so mad at Catherine and her other workers that she made them work on Christmas.

That night, Eden was visited by the ghost of her Aunt Marie. She’s chained bound with mirrors connected to it because of what she's done while she was alive and tells Eden to change. Eden was soon visited by three spirits, each showing her the past, present and future. The first spirit shows Eden's structured past, living with her Aunt. She and Catherine were best friends. Aunt Marie didn't let Eden to go to the Beadnell's house for Christmas, saying that she has to rehearse more if she wants to be a star.

However, while Aunt Marie is sleeping, Eden manages to sneak out and go to the Beadnell's house to celebrate. Later, Aunt Marie came to the Beadnell's house looking for Eden. In that moment Eden told the Spirit of Christmas Past to send her back to her bedroom, because the outcome was too painful to see because her Aunt had yelled at her and the Beadnells. Eden explained that she lost her Christmas spirit because of that painful Christmas she had because of her Aunt.

When Eden was shown the present by the Spirit of Christmas Present, she sees her employees, even Catherine, teasing her behind her back. She was furious, but slowly had a change of heart when she sees the orphanage Catherine helps. Overhearing a conversation about the orphanage closing due to lack of funding, Eden shows concern for the orphans' future and wants to know if they'll survive. However, the ghost repeated her cruel words which offended her and she demands they leave at once.

When Spirit of Christmas Future shows Eden her terrible future with her being poor and Catherine as a cruel fashion designer, she decides to change her future and be a lot nicer to her workers. That morning, she rushes to find presents for her workers. When they arrive, she greets them and lets them take the rest of the holidays off and her workers were delighted to see Eden had changed and Catherine was happy to see that her friend has her Christmas spirit back.

Physical Appearance[]

Eden has light skin, blonde hair and green eyes. She has a beauty mark under her right eye. Her hair is in ringlets. When performing, she wore a green gown with gold detailing and green low heels with buckles. In addition, she wears a pearl necklace with green diamonds and long-white gloves. To sleep, she wears a long-purple sleeping gown with a gray sleep mask. On Christmas Day, she wore a red and gold dress with long-white gloves, red hood with white fur and red low heels with buckles for Christmas Day.


Initially, Eden was shown to be rude, selfish, bad-tempered, bratty, bossy and reluctant to change. But as the plot thickens, her attitude is proved justifiable. As a kid, Eden wasn't so selfish or rude. She was very friendly and she was a good person. But because of her strict and egoistic Aunt, Marie, who never let Eden be free and who always said that "In a selfish world, the selfish succeed", she grew up with confidence in the words of her Aunt. In the possible future shown by the Spirit of Christmas Future, penniless and jobless Eden was a lot more timid and modest, a life of hardship and poverty having humbled her greatly. But after the three spirits visit her, she repents her disposition and changes into a kind, lovable and genuine person - her true self.
