Two new books about Barbie doll and they are from Japan and written in Japanese

Several months ago I bought a book from Amazon Japan and while looking around I found two other interesting books but they were sold out at Amazon directly. So I had to found a solution that I could buy from the Amazon Japan Marketplace and have the books shipped to Germany. I gonna tell you more in video that I plan how I did it exactly. Today I got the books from the donahue. I took a look inside but my Japanese is too bad to read the books at the moment but I will try to learn it.

I bought these books a birthday presents although they needed two months to arrive here. That’s okay and also the fact that they are used. I have nothing against used books.

Twist n Turn Barbie

Finally I found my very first TNT Barbie.  I don’t know the exact hair color but it doesn’t matter so much to me. It’s just good to have one. I have been looking for one for several months or years… I have forgotten it. Anyway, here she is…

She’s the one from 1966 with the marking that you may have seen something like Pat. Pend. then (C) 1966.  She has real eye lashes but I have to replace them later since they are not perfect anymore. She’s the first one with bendable legs with joints and a hip joint.  She was produced in Japan ( typically for early TnT Barbie dolls). Later versions were produced in Taiwan and Korea. I did a short video to show her with all her beauty. Here’s the link to my Twist n Turn Barbie video.
