Today I wanna show you another one of my favorite Barbie dolls. She’ s called Noir et Blanc Barbie. In 2003 when she was released, she was a Barbie Club exclusive. Fortunately she was also availabe at several Barbie dealers and so I got the chance to buy her. I like her extraordinary black and white dress. She also wears a black and a white shoe. I wish more such extraordinary Barbie dolls would be available today.
Finally after at least 10 years I was able to find the Gold Jubilee Barbie in Europe. She was made for the 35th Anniversary of Barbie in 1994. Only 7000 Barbie dolls were made for the market. Back then she was a very limited doll. She looks very typical for a Barbie doll for the 1990s dolls. She has rooted eyelashes and a very opulent dress. She also has a very extraoridinary box. I’m so happy to have her in my collection now.
Today I wanna show you the two Barbie & the Sensations dolls that I have in my collection. Two years ago I found the Belinda doll from that series in nrfb condition. In January 2012 I bought the Bobsy doll in nrfb condition. She arrived here by the begin of march 2012. At the moment she is one of my latest dolls. Three dolls are still missing to finish this series.
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.
I got a lot of positive feedback for my last blog article. Now I wanna show you another favorite of my Kelly Giftsets that I found in 2009. This time it’s the Kelly Pretty Kitty Giftset. It was available in 2002 and it’s a Target Exclusive. To me it’s interesting since I never saw such a Giftset before. When I bought my Kellys here in the mid 1990s pets weren’t available for them.
I’m back. My PC broke down in January but now I have new one and I have new dolls to talk about 😉
Finally after 10 years I found this set recently for a low price. Ten years ago it costed approximately 50 Euros in Germany. I thought the price was too expensive to buy the set and so I waited several years. The set is interesting to me since I collect the early Kelly dolls and it’s a special TRU edition.
I wish you a Happy New Year 2012.
Today I’d like to show you now my Holiday Barbie Collection. She contains the first 10 Happy Holidays Barbie dolls from 1988 -1998, the Millennium Holiday Barbie dolls and continues from 2001 to 2011. The only dolls missing are the Happy Holidays Barbie 1997 (blonde hair), the Holiday Visions Barbie doll from 2003 and the Holiday 2004 Barbie doll in burgundy dress(Sears exclusive).
In these days I’ll celebrate my 15th anniversary of Barbie collecting. I began to collect Barbie in the last days of November in 1996. The Irish Barbie from DOTW (Dolls of the World) was my first collector doll. I was happy to have her in my collection. She was followed by two other Barbie collector dolls in December. One of them was the Happy Holidays 1995 ( we bought her as Happy Holidays 1996 here in Germany) and the Indian Barbie from 1996. And these three dolls were only the begin of my collection.
