Barbie girl, this one's for you!




Feb. 22, 2010
One of my favorite toys as a child was Barbie. I would spend hours upon hours playing with my Barbie’s, dressing them in all the latest Barbie fashions, and decorating my Barbie mansion to the best of my little kid imaginative abilities. I probably played with my Barbie’s in some capacity until I was 15 or 16. I still get nostalgic thinking about them. Neither of my sister’s were into Barbie’s like me and I used to make my brother play with me as long as I promised to play football with him in the yard. He always got the short end of the stick because I was not good at football, or so he said, and so I would always weasel my way out of having to play center snapper for too long.
When I went away to college my Dad gave me my first Collectible Barbie. I was really into suns, moons, and stars at the time and I thought it was so thoughtful and fun that he gave me the constellation Barbie’s; all Collector’s edition. I knew by the way the box looked that these Barbie’s were special and not just an ordinary $10 buy from Target. I took them to college and displayed them with pride in my dorm room. My Mom began to also buy me Barbie’s and to my surprise and excitement Barbie’s from the Designer Collection. For Christmas and my birthday I was given a new Designer Barbie to have and to hold. I was always so excited to see what I would get next. 
Would it be Versace? 

 or Christian Dior? 

or Kate Spade?
 After I graduated with my Masters Degree and became a professional working at a University with an office, I started to display my Barbie’s on my top bookshelf. However, it got to the point that I had so many! My students loved talking to me about my Barbie’s and my colleagues often teased me about them. I however always adored them. When I moved from Southern California to Delaware, I did not feel like the Barbie’s would “fit” in my new office. They are now in a box in my spare bedroom. I still adore them but truthfully have nowhere to display them in my house-they do not go with my décor and for some reason there is an air of immaturity or a vibe that I get from colleagues if I were to put them on display in my office. 

So there they are. In a box. Until further notice. Sad. Alone.

Anyhow, the purpose of this post is that Barbie is releasing a brand new Christian Louboutin Barbie and the VIP wait list opens on Feb. 25th. They are only accepting 2000 on the wait list. If you are a Barbie lover and/or a collector, you do not want to miss this!

I loved Barbies growing up too! And probably played with them way too long into my teens! :) I do not have the Designer Barbies, but I do have a few that are very special to me. Barbie as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, Barbie as Sleeping Beauty, and an I Love Lucy doll (which I equate to Barbie, even though it is Lucy) from her VitaMeataVegaMin commercial. I wish I still had all my other Barbies from when I was growing up, Wedding Barbie, Air Force Barbie, Hawaiian Barbie (with the REALLY long hair!), to name a few. I am VERY saddened to say that all mine went to my sister, who was not as keen on them as I was; and I found out that the boxes of my beloved dolls where probably thrown away a couple summers ago. At least I still have those collectibles (still in the boxes!). :(
