Barbie Wednesday




A few posts ago I had someone tell me they found the Little Red Riding Hood Barbie at Tuesday Morning. I have been looking for her ever since! I knew that if I got desperate I could buy her online but I wanted to find her at Tuesday Morning's cheap price. So last weekend I finally found her!!!

She's a couture version of Little Red Riding Hood!


The Back of the box reads:

Why, Little Red,

What a great big, wonderful

fashion sense you have!

The Better to be fabulous in, my dear!

The most delicious goodies

Little Red has for Granny?

Sweet styles! No wonder why the wolf

adores this couture cutie.




I received my newest Barbie catalog yesterday!

Not only are these catalogs nice to look through and order from, but you could cut out Barbie for altered art! You can order the free catalog at barbiecollector.com.






It's most interesting on the first page is this giant Barbie Mannequin. She is the only one available and costs $3,000.00.





The custom made chair which you see in both photos is exactly like the one in Barbie's Malibu house. This lovely chair sells for $7,800.00. And who wouldn't want a three-foot tall pink poodle? There are only two of these poodles available to own for $2,000.00






I happened upon this new Barbie Loves T3 hair dryer. It's sold at Bloomingdales. Mattel really has came out with everything this year! I wonder what they will come out with next?!



Wishing you a great day, Lindsey

I love your Barbie posts! I had no idea there were so many cool Barbie items available...or even ever made. I was looking at Barbie books at an antique store the other day and thinking of you! Have a great day!

Congratulations on the Little Red Barbie Hood-- she was well worth the wait! The other day, when Puppet and I were Halloween costume storing, we came across a Barbie Doll (original black/white bathing suit) costume complete with the box! It was $en$ational! (I wish Tuesday Morning's carried it, then it would be affordable. LOL!)

Congrats on finding the Little Red Riding Hood Barbie at Tuesday Morning! She's cute, and a little bit naughty!

I love those Barbie catalogs!
I saw a Barbie Dream Home at an estate sale last weekend, and I thought of you, Lindsey. It didn't seem to be in very good shape. I wouldn't have minded having it, but I TRULY have NO place to keep it.

(Make that Barbie's Dream HOUSE..sorry)

Madison said...

I love the mannequin, poodle, and chair! The thing I don't like is that they have started dressing their barbies up to look inappropriate. Oh well that's Mattel's decision. Thanks for sharing!

Love, Madison

It is always interesting to read your barbie posts every week. I'm not sure I like the little red riding hood, but hey. :) Barbies have always been beautiful dolls. My favorites are the ones that come out each year for the holidays. I always look forward to seeing what dress has been designed for them this year.

Cheers!

Ha...Jacqueline would love a 3 ft tall pink poodle..lol...I have a pink poodle bathroom! I bought the 2001 Malibu Barbie tonight mint in box at a thrift store. What in the world was that person thinking that let go of her? Crazy! Thank you for your address...next week, a Barbie treasure is coming your way. I need to get it packed up for Lindsey's house!

Diane said...

Oh My what will they think of next. I think a Barbie collection would never end. Good luck on your hunt!
Thanks for stopping by my blog I enjoy your comments. Hugs, Diane

I sooo look forward to Barbie Wednesday! This is the time I can read about things that brought such joy to my lie as a child. If it was Barbie I had it or wanted it.
I saw some tiny "Barbie" dolls in the Halloween section at Target.
Speaking of Target I got a Brbie lunch bad on sale after the Back to School ruch was over. I was soooo excited.

I love Barbie! I have all my Grandma's from her doll collection. I've been meaning to sell them on ebay, but maybe you have inspired me to keep them ! :) LOVE your blog!

Natasha Burns said...

Oh my gosh they don't make Barbies like I was used to seeing as a kid! Red Riding Hood looks rather sexy there in her fishnet knee highs! LOL!
