Barbie Wednesday

Hello friends! I am excited to share with you some of my favorites from Mattel's Fall line preview!



I think Mattel has out done themselves this year and I am excited to add these lovelies to my collection!
The new American Girl reproduction gift set is a must have for both my Mom and I as the American Girl was Mom's first doll, and a favorite doll for me!



Also the beautiful Fashion Queen Barbie was one of the first vintage dolls that I added to my collection and I am super excited to add this reproduction doll to my collection too!


I squeeled in delight when I saw these next 3 dolls!Vintage styled Wizard Of Oz dolls!!!!


The changes that Mattel has made to these Wizard Of Oz dolls makes them a must have in my collection!!


The Wicked Witch is my favorite!!!!! I think she is so inspiring!!! WOW! I love the lace boots!!!

And of course if any of you are as big a Johnny Depp fans as we are then you know how fun this doll will be to have! The upcoming movie sounds exciting and we can't wait to see Johnny again!!!


I hope you are having a wonderful week, Lindsey

Hi Ladies,

This post makes me miss the set of Wizard of Oz barbies that I had. I had the original set when they first came out, what was it 15 years ago? I had to sell them when my husband got laid off. I have 4 barbies tucked away in a box under my bed, that I occasionally pull out and play with. You never really outgrow barbie!

Hugs,
Meri

Having just shown Public Enemies, Alice is not even out, and he's already ready to start his next part with Angelina Jolie! I can't keep up with him!.. though I DO try my best!

Love the Barbie's!! I used to collect them.

I am so ready to see Johnny Depp in that new Alice in Wonderland movie. Depp is one of my favorite actors -- Capt. Jack Sparrow especially!

All your Barbies look as tho they walked out of the 1950's. How beautiful they are, brings back lots of memories for sure, Char

Kelly said...

Oh I'm so excited! These types of Barbies are really hard to get here (and super expensive if you can!)
My lovely Boyfriend is taking me to Vegas for my birthday so I will be able to hunt these beauties down!

Aaahhhh these new repros just look great! Saturday matinee has always been one of my favorite outfits, but I never had it! The american girl looks great too! I have a lot of fashion queens in my collection, as it was always one of the cheap dolls over here and you can do so much with them. I especially loved them with the magic wigs. Mmm your post just tickles me: I might check my collection (now in the attic) one of these days! If I do, I'll let you know AND I will make photos for my blog!

Shirley said...

You sure do know how to bring back the memories of the barbies that we bought our daughter when she was growing up. She had a wide variety of dolls from the tiny to the Cabbage Patch which my sister made for her a long time ago. Thanks for sharing. Take care.

Lisa said...

Really cool! I love the first one too! I may have to see about this one!
Hugs, Lisa

Boy do those bring back memories! Really cute!

Jacqueline said...

Show and tell is so fun with Lindsey! Especially when you are talking Barbies!
I think the witch and Mr. D would make a good match!

My Passionate Pink Life said...

Hi Lindsey! I love the first two barbies...I just got the barbie catalog and there are a few in there that are must haves! Have a nice night! Hugs, Jennifer

Heidi Ann said...

Hi Lindsey:
I had the original Fashion Queen Barbie with her wigs. I spent last Sunday with my cousin, Sheree (I blogged about it), and we sat and reminisced about the hours we spent playing with our Barbies (we had ALL of them, in triplicate between the two of us, my sister and hers!) I only wished we'd saved them all! We'd be rich women in more than memories!
Thanks for the little walk down Memory Lane (again).
xoxo

That sure is some fun dolls that Mattel is releasing, I am not sure if I would know where to begin. But I am sure you have it all figured out. Have fun and Happy Collecting. Hugs, Diane
