My Mermaid Barbie dolls

Today I’d like to show you my mermaid Barbie dolls. This series is called Jewel Hair Mermaid -series. The most important characteristic feature is the long hair. They are the Barbie dolls with the longest hair ever produced.
In the pictures below you can see the Jewel Hair Mermaid  Barbie (afro-american version), the Jewel Hair Mermaid Midge and the Jewel Hair Mermaid Teresa.

The Pajama Fun Series

Today I gonna show you a series from 1999 called Pajama Fun -Series.  Available were Skipper, Nikki and Courtney. This is the first time Courtney has red hair.  In the early 1990s she was a brunette.  This is also the first time that the afro-american friend Nikki has a new hairdo. It’s hard to explain how it exactly looks. The Barbie from this Series was a Target exclusive. She has the same nightgown that Skipper wears. The only difference are the colors. Although this series wasn’t available in Europe and especially made for the U.S. market I got them from other collectors from Germany.

A happy new Barbie year

Finally I have some free time to write a new article.  I was home for Christmas and came back 10 days ago. My  Christmas gift was the Pink Splendor Barbie. I wanted her since 1999 when I saw her the first time ( although she was released in 1996).  Since the prices for Barbie dolls are not the highest ones in history at the moment I found a seller who sold her for a good price.

To be honest I was amazed when I opened the shipper to get her box out of the shipper. My first thought when I saw her was “wow”.  She came in the biggest box I have ever seen anf she filled the box out. I’m happy to have her in my collection now.

Greetings from Asia

At my first convention visit in Hamburg, Germany last May I bought the Chinese New Year 2009 doll. I had seen her before but she was not available for a good price before. She was especially made for the asian market. In Germany she was hard to find. I didn’t expect her to be available on a convention.  I’m sorry for the pics but the box reflected the light in such a bad way that there was merely chance to take good pics. I didn’t want to debox her for the occasion of taking pictures.

Now I want you to show several little (Shellys) Kellys from my (Shelly) Kelly Collection.  They are from the rare Pool Fun Series. I’m not sure whether they were available in Europe in general. The only one I found with a european Box is the Marisa doll.  I’m proud to be able to show you the black Kelly as well as the rest of this series.
