Cut & Style Barbie ( also known as Superschnitt Barbie)

Today I wanna show you my four Cut & Style Barbies fom 1994. The dolls were made for the Playline-market but nowadays collectors are also interested in them. Many of them had them in their childhood. I also belong to the ones who had one of them in their childhood. Today I like all of them. Each one is special in her own way but earlier I was only interested in the blonde Barbie doll with the pink dress. I’m happy to have the whole series.

Generation Girl Susie

I have always been a fan of the Generation Girl Series but until now I had none of them. Yesterday I got the first of my Generation Girls. She’s called Susie and the european Version of Generation Girl Tori. I like her since she reminds me on the fashion and the feeling from then. Obviously the Generation Girl Tori was made for the whole european market and not only for Spain and Portugal.

A modern Todd

About two months ago I found a Todd from the 1970s and now I have also a modern Todd from the 1990s. He is included in the Dream Wedding gift set from TRU from 1993.

Camp Fun Barbie Deluxe Set

Since I had no time to post new articles in the last weeks, I wanna show several new dolls that have arrived in the last weeks. The first one is the Camp Fun Barbie Deluxe set. I got it from another collector who bought her in Italy in the mid 1990s. I have never seen this set before and so I thought it could be interesting for other collectos.

Todd

About two weeks ago I found this little Todd on a flea market. He’s from 1974 or 1975 and wears his navy shirt and parts from the outfit  #7986 called “Hubschangezogen”, an outfit only available in Europe.

Phone Fun Courtney

To complete my favorite series from Skipper doll and her friend Courtney I was searching for the last Courtney to complete my collection. A few days ago I got an offer for the Courtney and I bought her. So here she comes… Phone Fun Courtney from 1995. Now she can phone Skipper. I bought the Skipper back in 1995 when she was available. I deboxed my Skipper but I never really played with her.

Nikki has finally arrived here

After a long journey the Totally Yoyo Nikki doll has finally arrived here.  She has completed my favorite Teen Skipper series. Now that I have the whole Totally Yoyo series I want to show them to you. The first one from this series that I bought was the Totally Yoyo Skipper in 2008.  Suddenly in May 2011 the other two were offered and I bought them. Courtney arrived here about three weeks ago and Nikki arrived here yesterday. An interesting fact to know is that the Nikki doll from the promo pics were a short skirt but obviously it was replaced by the same skirt Courtney wears only in different colors.

First Teen Skipper doll

Today I wanna show you another part from my Teen Skipper collection.The difference between the Skipper dolls from before 1996 and the ones produced in 1996 is that the Teen Skipper has the same size like Barbie. Before 1996 they were smaller than Barbie dolls. Maybe this was an attempt to make Skipper more interesting for little girls. Her friend Courtney, who was a brunette til 1996, became a redhaired friend later. Skipper also got a new friend called Nikki(aa – doll).
Very interesting to know is that there is a difference in the facial painting between the Courtney made for the european Market and the US Market. I gonna make a picture for comparison in the next days.

Where do they spend their next winter holiday?

Yesterday I finally received my Winter Holiday gift set from 1995 with all three Barbie sisters (Stacie, Kelly and Skipper)from the 1990s.
It’s a set that I wanted for years but it’s not easy to get. It wasn’t available in Germany back then. As far as I could identify the hints it was available in the USA, Canada, France, Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Argentina. So here it is. Skipper has the rare Pizza Hut Face that was only used once for the Pizza Hut Skipper in 1994.

Kebaya Barbie -Greetings from Malaysia

Last Sunday I had the chance to get 2 Kebaya Barbie dolls for a low price. On Wednesday the dolls arrived here.
I like them because they are very exotic. They were produced for the Asian market and available in Malaysia.
