Sanrio is the company that created the extremely popular Hello Kitty line. In 2007 Mattel came out with this Hello Kitty Barbie. She has a fabulous faux leather jacket and striped shirt which reminds me of Barbie's original bathing suit. She is cute but very modern in style.
A year late Mattel release this ultra cute Hello Kitty Barbie! She is so awesome! I love her hair style and makeup! She has a retro 50's and vintage Barbie feel to her that I love! Even the open toe heels are reminiscent of a vintage doll.
Mattel also released a My Melody Barbie. My Melody is cute bunny created by Sanrio and is one of Hello Kitty's Friends. I was very lucky in finding this doll at Tuesday Morning for only ten dollars! I don't visit Tuesday Morning very often and I forget they get in Barbies every now and then. I stopped in the other day hoping to find the Little Red Riding Hood Barbie and instead found this lovely doll. If you have a Tuesday Morning store in you area you should go look around unless of course you live in my area which then save the Barbies for me please!!!!!!!!
