  4. Okay can I be honest? I am TOTALLY freaked out by the mirror and the game thingy?! The dream house I can handle, but all those barbies lined up I are so creepy!

  6. Hahahah...When I was little I had that beautiful Barbie with a pink gown and a crown...oh I remember how much I loved playing with her!

  13. I got the townhouse for Christmas one year. It had an elevator and I thought it was the best thing in the whole world.

  14. The image is actually a print from Etsy shop "Studio Lyon". You should look her up -- She has some very cute things! I also have a small link credit at the bottom of yesterday's post. :)

  15. P.S. I'm pretty sure I would actually wear one of those Barbie shoe rings for a fun night out!

  16. My nine year old son picked out a pink and white Barbie basketball (proceeds go to breast cancer research) the other day at the store and said "Mom, may I?" and I said "But it's pink!" and he said, "Don't you like Barbie???" Enough said!

  17. Unfortunately, Barbies just make me bitter because they were my older sister's thing and she would never share. But throw an American Girl doll at me and I am set. I guess that's why I'm such a nerd now :)

  18. I am pretty jealous of the Louboutin Barbie.

  19. Barbie is literally the greatest thing ever. I love the shoe ring!

  21. I have a huge smile on my face right now!! Ohmygoodness, it's been so long since I've thought of those barbie shoes. That used to be so much fun dressing them in different styles!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love these Barbies! They are so chic!

  23. I had that very first Barbie! My Uncle was the owner of a toy shop and he gave it to me as a gift...now that tells you more than you needed to know... I wish I had kept her!
    And... he gave her to me when I was still in the womb...........................

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haha. That Barbie shoe ring is awesome. I love Barbie... although I know I'm a little too old to admit that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I must be getting old, the foos ball table freaked me out. Poor Barbie without arms, they should have joined the arms then they would have looked like the Rockettes Barbie style. I can imagine playing with the doll house so I guess I still have an inner 8yr.old in here somewhere!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That fuseball table definitely creeps me out a bit -- Barbie has lost her arms!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I never owned a barbie... Dolls were not my thing. I used to copy words off the blackboard in nursery school... More proof that personality is really inborn!

    ReplyDelete
  28. hahahaha... great tribute to the doll who inspires us all :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great post!!! So fun!!!
    Barbie was born the same year as moi. How does she do it?

  30. I loved playing with my Barbie dolls when little. I think my older sister had that exact dream house and my mom says she found me trying to get in it, lol. I guess I wrecked them too. :)
    Great post.

  31. I love Barbie!! I always tried to get my daughter to play when she was little but she never got into it. lol

  36. What a trip, Sue! I had a first editon Barbie (actually, I still do) when I was a preteenager. I remember playing with her until I was at least 13. At that time, little bitty girls didn't play with Barbies because they were semi-anotomically correct! What a hoot. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Oh, and the creative Mr. Adler is amazing in the way he has created design with her form...very smart marketing strategy too. Who from my generation wouldn't want those!

  37. A Barbie Foosball table!! Genius.

  40. My little girl never played with Barbie much. My sister said it had something to do with my telling her with those eyebrows and that hair, no way she was a natural blonde. My little 3 year old would nod along as if she knew exactly what I meant.

  41. So that's where all my barbie shoes went!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. okay, this was great. brought back a flood of memories of my Skipper where you twist her arms around and she grows boobs. and she had a big patch of hair missing on the top. i want that ring with the barbie shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Barbie! I loved Barbie when I was a little girl. I had a few. I liked to cut their hair. Haha.

  48. Have you seen the new limited-edition Louboutin Barbie? She comes complete with four pairs of Louboutins-- what a fabulous life. I lived and breathed my Barbie dream house when I was a little girl. Haven't thought about it in months.. that picture is bringing back memories!

  49. These are so fun - but I think that Barbie mirror looks more like an old fashioned swim scene from a musical - you know, where everyone is swimming in formation in the water!

  50. Ahhhhhhhhh, I miss my Dream House!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yes those were the days!
    I never had the house. I got the campervan instead.. complete with fold out jacuzzi and horse trailer.. Oh man I LOVED that car!

    That first image reminds me of an Esther Williams movie scene.. Something out of 'Through Fire and Water'.. Hilarious and deliciously camp!

    Happy weekend dear!

  55. Wow, these must be serious collectors items!

    The barbie shoe rings are cool, I guess we could all recycle our barbie accessories...that is, if we knew where we can still find them, lol!
