Recently I got my second Hispanic Barbie (aka Rio Senorita). I wanted to complete my first one. She only came with her dress. I put the new one in my showcase and realized that although it’s the same doll and they were made in the same country the facial painting is completely different. Each of them is beautiful but very different. I already heard it from other collectors but it was hard for me to contribute something to this topic because I only had one. Have a look at my beauties…they are from 1979.
Believe it or not 14 days ago I got my very first Vintage Allan! I wanted him to accompany my Vintage Midge that I got last year.
Allan was the boyfriend of Midge in the early 1960s and they dated and almost 30 years later after a re-issue of Midge and Allan in the early 1990s they finally married and almost twenty years later they got offspring.
I found her to be a bit lonely and in October I found him. He needed a break before his long journey. I dressed him in 1990s Ken clothes. Not the best choice but better than being naked. I think I’ll go shopping for him in the next weeks. He gives my underrepresented male fraction a bit more weight.
Until then I’m going to show you pics how he is looking now.
