Welcome to Morocco!

I’m a fan of the “Dolls of the World” Collection that was produced in the 1980s and 1990s. I’m always interested in other cultures. They are so exiting. I already had several DOTW dolls from the 1990s that I bought back then. I liked them because their look was different in comparison to other Barbie dolls. I’m not such a big fan of traditional dresses but I liked most dresses that the DOTW dolls wore. I’m not informed if these dresses are 100% authentic or not but I think this topic is not so important.

As a German I would never wear a Traditional dress because to me they are not fashionable. It’s often hard to do trivial tasks in such a dress like going to cycle. I prefer to wear practical clothes. Nevertheless it doesn’t mean that I reject them completely. I really like Traditional dress for the DOTW because it’s a thing of understanding other cultures. Morocco has still something mystic… hard to explain… maybe the magic of the orient that fascinates me.

Ski Fun Time

I know I haven’t posted anything in the last 2,5 month. I have been very busy. Now that I have time again I would like to show you my little Ski Fun collection. I got the Barbie and the horse in 1991. Unfortunately most of the barettes got lost and I had to search and search and search to get new ones. I was so happy when I got them back. In summer I also found the dog Snowball, that I always wanted but never found,  and the blanket of the carriage. Maybe I can find the rest of the carriage in the future to complete my Ski Fun collection. It’s not the original saddlery that you can see. The original one was pink and I used the one that was delivered with the luxury horse trailer in 1996/1997.  Hope you like the pics.
