Nice Christmas presents

Although I didn’t expect to find any special Barbie doll for X-mas I was surprised by a nice seller who had a good offer. So I was able to enlarge my Barbie made for the Philippine market collection this Christmas. I had to wait long years to find any Barbie doll from there in general and suddenly it seems that some collectors sell a part of their collection from this very special country. I recently saw a report about a hospital and the poverty there. So I’m surprised that there were sold so many special Barbie dolls only for the market there. In a way that’s strange somehow. As far as I know Spainish is the offical language. Their indepence was celebrated in 1898 and for their 100th independence anniversary  were Barbie dolls available. I got one of them for X-mas.

Who has really no Holiday Barbie dolls?

The Holiday season is not far. Since August you can buy the lastest Holiday Barbie 2018 if you want. I’m not such a fan of her. I have several Holiday Barbie but not the latest ones. I think the history of the Holiday Barbie series is very interesting. Within the last 30 years many things have changed like the jewelry, the Make-Up and the dresses themselves. 

I think they are not so festive anymore. The early Barbie dolls from this series you can see a greater “wow”-effect. I don’t know really how to describe it but I would express them as beautiful. Maybe this is so because I grew up in this era and they were familiar to me. Anyway, I also have later Barbie dolls from after the 2000.

How not knowing the Winter Holiday outfit makes you a rookie

You maybe know the say “unexpectedly comes often” and so it was with this outfit. Last week I saw it and bought it. I had seen it in a video before and liked it. It was not a long time ago. My outfit is not complete here. It’s just a part of the whole outfit. The handbag, the jacket and the shoes are still missing but I like the hoodie and the pants. I was surprised how the hoodie was cut. The idea with the little zipper is just great. In general I think I have told you about the quality of early Barbie doll fashion.  It’s very good in comparison to what is sold nowadays in toy stores.

Is it warm enough for a Winter Holiday?

Or is Barbie freezing in these pants?

Anyway, let’s hope the best.

Christmas time

Christmas is not very far away and I thought  a long time about what to write execpt the ordinary wishes and greetings but it’s not easy. For many years I found it  very exciting to show you the latest purchases or completed outfits, dolls or play sets.  In the meantime many things changed. It has become easier to take pics and show them to your facebook friends rather than bringing anyone to read a blog article. Sad but true somehow but nevertheless I’d like to show you some pics of great Barbie dolls I bought several years ago. So here’s my Merry Chritmas to you.

Holiday Treasures Barbie – the trio

I’m proud to present you my collection of Holiday Treasure Barbie dolls. The were made in 1999,2000 and 2001.

The one with the blue dress is from 2001. She’s the last one from the series and she was a Collector’s Club Exclusive back then. I think you hardly can see it but the glitter on her white skirt sparkles and creates a very state occasion.

The one with red and gold dress is from 1999. She was the first one in this series. I really like her hairdo.

The one with the red and green dress is from 2000. She has  gold ornaments on her dress.
