Barbie Wednesday


Mattel has been releasing photos of some of their new collections for 2010. One of the new Barbies is Barbara Streisand. I am sure they had to create a special head mold just for her!



Mattel has also created this trio of 8o's rock Barbies. Starting with Joan Jett Barbie!




Debbie Harry Barbie. I think she is the prettiest of the trio!




And Cyndi Lauper Barbie! She is quite lovely too! I think her hair color is awesome!




I happened upon this cool new item from Barbie that I can't wait to add to my collection. A vintage reproduction shoe card! Isn't this cool?! I love how you can see the styles change as you go from top with the Ponytail Barbie, to the bottom with the Superstar Barbie.



This is a Barbie football table, in which two teams of Barbies spin their legs at the ball while somehow keeping their impeccable hairdos in place. Surely an added challenge to those working the handles. It's a limited edition, on sale in Parisian concept store Colette, for an unimaginable 10,000 euros.

I want to thank you all for the early Birthday wishes! I am really super excited, but starting to feel old.
I can't wait for Saturday!

This is the second Barbie Wednesday I've been able to enjoy--so much fun! Thanks for your visit, and for always saying such kind things!

Oh, my unbelievable! Rockstars as Barbie! Those shoes are fun! Those dresses! The hair. Amazing.

Fun. Thanks...

How lovely to meet a barbie fan. In my youth there were no barbies and once married we got 4 sons so no barbies here. But we have two granddaughters and thank goodness for that they love barbies but too young to be collecting . I just tell them to hold onto them, never throw or give them away

I love to see those new Barbies. I wonder isn't the Barbra Streisand face mold the same as the grandmother face mold that came out a couple of years ago? I love Joan Jet the most, as I think neither Debbie Harry nor Cindy Lauper look like the real ones as I have seen both life at the time...now that is what I would call an old lady! As we should say: You just have opened your eyes, but you will realize that in about 20 years, enjoy your birthday!

Jacqueline said...

I'm too vintage to roll with the Barb and the Joan and the rest...Put Barbie back in her poodle skirt and pony tale and I'm happy as a lark. The shoe card is a keeper for sure!

Heidi Ann said...
