I have been enjoying reading a new Barbie guide book that I received for Christmas. The most interesting chapter talks about how there are so many rare prototypes. Outfits that were made from different and left over materials. Collectors are discovering variations of styles and colors every day! How exciting it is to be a Barbie collector.
Like this photo I found showing a similar style dress using different materials.
I also found it interesting that Barbie dolls from the Seventies that weren't as highly sought after in past years are becoming so now that the women who had those dolls as girls are buying them now.
I leave you with this photo of a Barbie plate I found at a garage sale several years ago. It shows a ponytail Barbie in the outfit called " Solo in the Spotlight".
Have a great day,
