Mystical Manipuri Barbie

Sounds like she is from India, huh? And she really is.¬† Luckily I found her several weeks ago in Italy. She’s my first Barbie from the first Expressions of India series from 1997. It’s stunning what foreign Barbie dolls were made for foreign markets.

She’s so exotic and I’m happy to have her in my collection.

Beauty Secrets Barbie and Christie

Finally after some laborious weeks I take my time to present you another couple from my collection. This time it is the Beauty Secrets series¬† ( okay it’s not complete the Beauty Secrets Barbie with the mirrors is not in my collection yet) . In general I’m happy to have the two in Nrfb. Oh I almost forgot to mention that they are from 1979. I guess you have never estimated them to be more than 30 years old. At the moment I concentrate on collecting Superstar Barbie….
