Dreamhouse Midge

I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this doll on store shelves ever since I learned she would be available for us to purchase. Finally Barbie's best friend has returned with the Steffie face mold. Of course, this isn't the first time Midge has been made with this face mold, but it's definitely been awhile. I really hope that Midge is here to stay....especially with this face mold. I was also pleasantly surprised to find she had rooted eyelashes. I am definitely adding her to my favorite dolls list. So....here she is. 


I have to say that I think she is cute as a button. Love her big blue eyes and pouty Steffie lips. She will soon be living in my Barbie Dreamhouse right along with Barbie. I'll be sharing pics soon. 

Here is a picture of this great doll that I found on the internet. 


She's just as adorable in person as she is in the above picture. I do think I will work on my Midge's bangs a bit, but other than that, she is awesome. I hope you like her too.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me. I hope  you leave a comment.

Wedding Party Midge Gift Set

Wow....June is almost half over. Hard to believe we are halfway to Christmas again. Didn't we just have that? lol I say that more and more every year it seems. Anyway...on to my post for today. There is a saying here in America....June Brides. A lot of brides to be want to be a June bride, so a lot of weddings take place in June. So...I've decided to share a few of my bride dolls to celebrate the month of June. I did this last year too, so we'll see how far I get before the month is over. 

Mattel gave us a wonderful gift set in 1990, and I am so glad I own it. The Wedding Party Midge gift set is one that marks a milestone in the Barbie dolls friends and family line of dolls. Midge Hadley has been Barbie's best friend since she appeared on the market in 1962. As we Barbie collectors all know, Barbie has appeared on the market too many times to count wearing a wedding gown, but Mattel has yet to marry Barbie to her longtime love.....Ken. I won't even begin to speculate why that is either. lol 




Isn't the whole bridal party attractive? Of course, Barbie is Midge's bridesmaid and Ken is Allen's best man. Kelly is the flower girl, and Todd is the ring bearer. Midge even has a gold wedding band painted on her left ring finger. 

I hope you enjoyed this post about Barbie's best friend getting married. I really cherish my Wedding Party Midge gift set in my collection. It's still nrfb too.
