Pizza Party with Skipper, Courtney, and Kevin at Pizza Hut

After an 18-month hiatus, the Pizza Party is finally back on! And what better place to have it than Pizza Hut? Today, we gather to celebrate with Skipper, Courtney, and Kevin, our three beloved dolls who bring so much joy and laughter into our lives.

Skipper: The Special-Head Mold Doll

One of the highlights of this party is the presence of Pizza Party Skipper, a unique doll with her own special head mold. This mold is not commonly used, but I happen to love it. The sculpt of Skipper’s face captures her mischievous and playful nature perfectly. She has those adorable dimples and twinkling eyes that instantly bring a smile to your face.

Courtney: Best Friend Forever

Alongside Skipper is Pizza Party Courtney, her best friend and constant companion. Courtney’s optimistic and bubbly personality complements Skipper’s mischievous charm. Together, they make the perfect pair, always ready to embark on a new adventure or solve a mystery.

Kevin: The Boy Friend

Kevin, our boy friend, rounds out the trio. With his kind and caring nature, Pizza Party Kevin brings a sense of stability and warmth to our little doll world. Whether it’s sharing a pizza slice or lending a helping hand, he is always there to support Pizza Party Skipper and Courtney.

And now, the moment we have all been waiting for – the party at Pizza Hut! The smell of freshly baked pizzas fills the air, and the sound of laughter echoes throughout the restaurant. Skipper, Courtney, and Kevin, dressed in their casual attire, are eagerly anticipating the arrival of their delicious feast.

As the waiter brings over the pizzas, our dolls’ eyes light up with excitement. They take turns choosing the toppings, each creating a unique pizza that reflects their own preferences. From classic pepperoni and cheese to more adventurous combinations like Hawaiian and vegetarian, there is no shortage of choices for everyone to enjoy.

While they eat their pizzas, our dolls engage in lively conversations, sharing hilarious anecdotes about their adventures and secrets. They reminisce about the times they have spent together, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

In addition to pizza, Pizza Hut also offers a variety of sides and desserts, allowing our dolls to satisfy their cravings for more than just savory pies. They indulge in cheesy garlic bread, garden salads, and delectable chocolate sundaes, creating a feast fit for royalty.

As the night comes to a close, our dolls’ energy levels reach an all-time high. They dance to the infectious tunes of the jukebox, creating their own mini disco on the floor. The laughter continues, and it is clear that this pizza party has exceeded all expectations.

So, as we gather our dolls and bid farewell to Pizza Hut, we can’t help but feel a sense of gratitude. Their presence in our lives has brought endless joy and laughter, and a party like this is just a small token of our appreciation for them.

In conclusion, the party with Skipper, Courtney, and Kevin at Pizza Hut was nothing short of magical. The combination of their unique personalities, special head molds, and a shared love for pizza made this celebration truly unforgettable. We can’t wait for the next party, where new memories will be created and old ones will be cherished.

Barbie: A Journey From Perfect World to Real Emotions

Introduction to Barbie the movie: A Journey From Perfect World to Real Emotions

Last night, I had the opportunity to attend the pre-premiere of the much-anticipated Barbie, the movie at our local cinema. Can we consider it as a journey from the perfect world to real emotions ? As I walked into the theater, I was taken aback by the overwhelming crowd that had gathered for the screening. It seemed that the allure of Barbie had drawn in more visitors than anyone had anticipated. Excitement filled the air as the lights dimmed, and the movie began.

The Beginning – a perfect Barbie world?:

The movie opened with scenes already known from the trailer, giving us a glimpse into the magical and perfect world of Barbie. The visuals were stunning, showcasing a perfect Barbie land where every day was filled with joy and happiness. It was a world that many of us could only dream of. The attention to detail was remarkable, and it immediately captured the audience’s attention.

Barbie’s Owner and Real Emotions:

In the real world, Barbie’s owner was a young girl who loved her dearly. She played with Barbie, creating scenes and stories that brought her imagination to life. However, as the movie progressed, it became evident that the young girl had turned in a woman in her mid 40s who was feeling a sense of sadness in her real life. She mirrored the same emotions that Barbie seemed to experience in her perfect world which suddenly was not perfect anymore.

The Perfect World Shattered:

Unexpectedly, the perfect world that Barbie inhabited began to crumble. As Barbie’s owner faced challenges and hardships, Barbie could no longer ignore the real emotions that were surfacing within her. The once idyllic Barbie land was transformed into a world of chaos and uncertainty. It was a pivotal moment in the movie, as Barbie realized that she needed to venture into the real world to find healing and a deeper understanding of herself.

Barbie’s Journey to the Real World:

With determination in her eyes, Barbie made the courageous decision to leave her perfect world behind and embark on a journey into the real world. This marked a significant turning point in the movie, as Barbie stepped out of her comfort zone and embraced the challenges that awaited her. Ken smuggled himself into her pink car and joined her on the trip to the real world. The audience was captivated by the transformation that Barbie underwent, as she navigated the complexities of the real world with grace and resilience.

Ken caused chaos in Barbie’s perfect world and caused real emotions

Ken also discovered the real world in his own way. Finding the masculine world more than enticing he tried to import horses and patriarchy into the Barbie world with the idea to dominate it. After realizing that Ken wanted to take over Barbieland Barbie travels back with the Barbie owner that made her feel sad and her daughter to save the Barbie world from Ken.

Conclusion:

The Barbie movie, while having a somewhat trashy storyline, managed to strike a chord with the audience. It highlighted the importance of acknowledging and embracing our true emotions, even if they are not always pleasant. Barbie’s journey from her perfect world to the real world served as a reminder that healing and growth often come from stepping outside of our comfort zones.

As the credits rolled, the crowded cinema erupted with applause, a testament to the impact that Barbie had on the audience. Despite its flaws, the movie succeeded in delivering a powerful message of self-discovery and resilience. It left the viewers reflecting on their own lives, inspired to embrace their emotions and embark on their own journeys of healing. The secret hero in this play is however Allan.

In my opinion it’s also beneficial to know the characters from the 1960s until 1990s to understand the movie completely. Ruth Handler also appears as nice old lady living in the cellar of the Mattel headquarter. At the end we learn that Ruth was only a ghost since she died over two decades ago.

Keeping my promise – Barbie: A Journey from the perfect world to real emotions

In my first article about the movie which you can read here https://barbie.final-memory.org/barbie-the-movie-and-tickets-for-a-pre-premiere/ I promised to wear my Pinup Couture dress and bring a Ponytail Barbie with me to the cinema. In my wildest dreams I hoped to find a pink box like some of you may already have seen via Facebook. However our cinema had no such pink box for photos and we had to improvise for the photo.

Everywhere Pink

What we experienced was a whole cinema full with people dresses in pink. My dress has also a little bit of pink in it but it’s not completely pink. Yesterday pink seemed not to be a matter of age, just what the visitors imagined when thinking of Barbie. Maybe I’m a little bit old fashioned but I think the pink is a bit narrow-minded since Barbie represents at least for me more the the color pink.

Tutti, Todd and their problems

You have probably never heard of Tutti and Todd. No wonder. I also never heard of them for a long time. Even after starting to collect Barbie dolls I was for a while not aware that these dolls existed.

What’s the problem? Well, they were stopped to be in production almost a decade when I was born and I think they were not as wide spread as Barbie and the grown up family members.

Tutti and Todd are twin baby sister and baby brother of Barbie from the mid 60s until the mid 70s and then they disappear from the family and were never seen or heard of again. For a first impression I would like to link to https://fashiondollz.de/1965-tutti-todd-and-chris/#!gallery-1176-9939

D has always nice pics of a ton of Barbie dolls. But what makes Tutti and Todd so special that I dedicate here an article to these two twins? I recently bought a package with repair parts and among these dolls was a Tutti with a green leg and an open arm. So I was able to show you the wire inside the body. It’s the wire that causes the problem concerning the green arms and legs these dolls have often.

The wire reacted with some kind of liquid, often water. I think this problem is so wide spread because these smaller dolls were produced in one step while Barbie was produced in several steps. For Barbie you needed to produce the torso, the arms and the legs separately plus the head. For Tutti and Todd you needed only body and head. Here was at least a potential to save money and I think that these dolls now suffer from. https://fashiondollz.de/1965-tutti-todd-and-chris/#!

It’s something you hardly find information about but I think they are worth to be talked about even if they are out of production now for a long time. The little outfits have their very own charm and there are lots of outfits for Tutti and Todd around. By the way this Todd mentioned here has nothing to do with Todd https://fashiondollz.de/1977-ken-superstar/#!gallery-557-11415 from 1982, the groom of Tracy https://fashiondollz.de/1971-steffie-face/#!gallery-553-6993

The dolls are not related here. I know it’s sometimes a bit confusing. I hope you like this little article about Tutti, Todd and their problems.

Do you know Chatty Cathy?

To those of you who watch my youtube channel it’s not new that I’m repairing a Talking Barbie but do you know that there were more Talking dolls produced by Mattel? Did you know that Chatty Cathy is a bit older than Talking Barbie? No? She can also be repaired and has many fans around the world. Here’s her story.

First Mexican Barbie doll arrived

Last week I told you that I bought my first Barbie doll from Mexico. She has arrived in the meantime. Here’s Animal Lovin Barbie from Mexico. I assume she was there also produced in the late 1980s so that we can say that she’s approx. 30 years old. Their heads tend to become very pale. A part of the makeup is also pale. I don’t know why it happens but I have seen it on many of the Mexican Barbie dolls. It also seems to be like a disease.

A lot of work ahead of me

The next weeks are going to be very busy for me. I don’t if I find the time to do a Tuesday video for Busy B. I think it should not be a problem to do a Friday video but I don’t know if there is much more time. I’ve really some work to do in April and May. I’m currently reorientiating professionally and won’t be at home much for the next six or seven weeks. Of course that doesn’t mean that I stop collecting Barbie dolls. It’s just that I have less time in the next weeks for hobby stuff like youtube.

A visit at Tokyo Skytree

For Barbie dolls 60th anniversary you can visit an exhibition at Tokyo Skytree with different dolls from the last 6 decades and read about the dolls. There was also a one of a kind event for a Japanese designer. Everything ready for the 60th birthday huh ?

A funny video for Barbies 35th Anniversary

I recently learned that there was a video made by Mattel for the 35th Anniversary of Mattel. It’s very much skripted reality but it’s still nice and seems almost a bit historic. The reason I post this is because it’s funny. When you were a child like me back then you’ll remember lots of the dolls shown in this stage show. They made Barbie came to live for her 35th birthday and invented a stage show with the regular playline outfits and Barbie dolls from around. I’ve not known that a there was such a show. I’ve not known that they recorded the whole show for being able on VHS. A lot of the spirit from the mid 90s is here frozen in time. That’s what I like although it’s pure advertising.

Barbie doll sets you have never seen before

Do you have seen any set that appears in no book? Well I got a set many years ago that I’ve never seen in any book. This can be good since no burglar is going to visit you but this can also be bad because nobody knows that this set exists. Anyway, there is always a chance that you have something special because it isn’t shown anywhere.

A seller that I know offered in the last weeks something I’ve never seen before. I didn’t buy it but this reminded me that I also have something that a majority has never seen before.

Camp Fun Barbie

As far as I know the set was bought in Italy. I’m the second owner.
