Mod Friends

Posted by helen on February 6, 2019

Mod Friends came home when Walmart discounted them.

Mattel’s repro dolls have never been good sellers, the prices always drop as rotten apples fall from the trees. This set’s price dropped from $80 to $43. But it remains $80 on Barbie’s own website.  I suppose they are for a specific group of collectors who have fond memories of playing these type of dolls in their childhood.

Hello, February!

Posted by helen on February 1, 2019

Is Polar Vortex hurting you? but please think of these warmer days that filled with love

Late February days;
and now, at last,
might you have thought that winter’s woe was past;
so fair the sky was and so soft the air

—William Morris

To celebrate Barbie’s 60th Birthday, Mattel will remake “Busy Gal” Doll as a tribute to her successful careers.

Today is  “National Wear Red Day” –“Go Red For Women”  is the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women.

Have a Fabulous February!

My Barbie currently has an empty wardrobe,  I sold most of her outfits. but I managed to find this dress from the “Citrus obsession” Doll.

The photo below is from Last year, like many famous actresses, Barbie was dressed in black to support the “Me2” Movement at the 75th Golden Globes. I think I tweeted the photo but never posted on this site.

Debutante Ball

Posted by helen on January 3, 2019

I was very disappointed when I heard that Mattel will remake “Busy Gal” & “Astronaut” to celebrate Barbie’s 60th Anniversary as a career girl. Both have been reproduced before, why making the same thing again & again if your new price can not beat eBay price?

I went through Mattel’s Vintage Archive on Barbie Signature website, and I think this “Debutante ball” sounds like a perfect choice for 60th anniversary.

I searched the dress on eBay and  found its very expensive,  and it bothers me that  the bodice of the dress doesn’t fit  the doll:

so I tried to make one for my doll:

Barbie signature has become a mini manufacturer that makes trashy souvenir dolls for Junk Movies.

Mattel almost has NO creativities of its own. It makes me believe that Mattel does not need “designers”, it only needs a couple of people who have a sharp Market sense and know which movies or fashion designers are more sellable than others and making dolls to resemble their costume designs is profitable.

I purchased Elegant Rose, Mod Friends Gift Set and the 3 YSL platinum dolls

I would buy Midnight Glamour, Proudly Pink, x-file Dana Scully, Dr. who Iris Apfel dolls if they are discounted, as I only like their faces or hair colors, so I would not pay full prices for them.

Barbie will be celebrating her 60th Birthday soon.  Where have all these years gone?

May you have all the dolls you wishes for in the upcoming new year. Although the market is slow, Barbie is still under the spotlights.

sorry, Barbie didn’t get a new dress for the new year. as I was too lazy to make her one.

Make your 2019 sparkle, dolls!
