Friday Night Date

One of the best things I think that Mattel is doing and has done is offer reproduction vintage Barbie, friends, and family dolls for sale. 
Some vintage Barbie doll collectors would disagree I'm afraid, but that's okay. I think enough collectors want them, so Mattel keeps producing them and offering them for sale. Yaaaaay! Don't get me wrong, because I also love vintage Barbie and even own some. Still....the more affordable reproductions are a great option for me. 

Today I thought I would share a set that I own called Friday Night Date. This is a great set and I love mine.

Aren't they a great looking couple? I think Barbie is gorgeous with her big red lips and titian hair. Ken is dashing as always. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

Barbie Love Animal Print

Do you love animal print? I know I sure do, but it has to be faux prints all the way. Of course, Barbie loves animal print too, and it's been obvious in so many of the fashions she's worn over the years. 

Today I thought I would share the 2005 Animal Print Fashion Fever dolls that I have in my collection. I have a number of Fashion Fever dolls in my collection, but these are 2 of my favorites. 

I love this Barbie doll with the blue streaks in her blond hair that matches her animal print fashion. Also....her blue eyes. She is very pretty and trendy wearing this faux animal print fashion. 

Since I don't have the original packaging for the above doll, I'm not sure if Mattel gave her a name. I think she is Chelsea though, and she's adorable with her freckles and pink streaked auburn brown hair. 

I keep both of these dolls displayed out in the open in my bedroom along with a lot of other dolls. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by and visit. 

Comments are appreciated too.

Hair Wear Top Model Barbie

Can you believe that 2013 is one quarter done? April is almost half over as well, so this year is definitely flying by. It won't be long until it's summer here in the US.

On that note, I thought I'd share a doll with you that's been in my collection for awhile now. She is Top Model Hair Wear Barbie. Since red is my favorite color, I had to add her to my collection. I also own the other 2 dolls in that series, but I'll save them for another day. Here are some pictures of Hair Wear Barbie, and I hope you enjoy them. Below are some pictures of her redressed, and I think she looks quite fierce in this fashion. 

In the following pictures, Barbie is wearing her original fashion. I just love the cherries on her top and in her hair. Just adorable. 

All in all, I think she wears both of these fashions very well. 

I hope you really enjoyed my post today. Stay tuned for more posts this month. I'm going to try and post something at least weekly. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
