A Day For Barbie

Posted by helen on November 25, 2011

Newest Updates:  Sorry,  Date Changed to Jan 7th.


Our next “Barbie Day” is set on Dec. 17th. 2011,

Meeting Point:  Statue of Atlas    12PM (noon)
                               630 Fifth Avenue  NYC
                              Main Entrance Frontcourt to Rockefeller Plaza
                               Subway E, F, to 5th AVE & 53rd St or F to 47-50 Rockefeller Center

Lunch:   Trump Grill at 1:00 pm

Gift Exchange: $30 limits

Theme: Winter Holidays

I think my travel doll theme would be “Winter Whisper“, my gift swap theme would be “Poinsettia Pretty” or “Holiday Hearts” (does “Holiday Hospitality” sound better?) 

If you live nearby, you are welcome to join the fun. Holidays in NYC are so beautiful. 

if you are new to “Barbie Day”,   here is a brief:

What is “Barbie Day”? –it’s a local Barbie doll collectors’ get-together. 

What We do on “Barbie Day”? 

1. Showing your  Travel Dolls:  Travel doll is the doll that keeps you company & participates the Barbie Day Events with you. each Barbie day has a particular theme, both you & your doll are suggested to  dress up for the theme . here is a group of travel dolls dressed up for “50th Golden Anniversary” Barbie Day    As you can see, all the dolls are dressed up in GOLD.

2.  Swapping Gifts: gift-swap is voluntary.  if you bring a doll for exchange, then you get a doll as return. if you dont bring one, you simply dont get one.  Here is an example of the Doll I made for swap,  the theme is same as above “50th Golden Anniversary”,  the doll is dressed up in gold.  gift Swap is fun, I always participate. you make someone happy and you get surprises as well.

3. Lunching together: Sorry, no free lunch in NYC,  you pay for your own lunch,  depending on where we eat and what you order, the average cost is from $20 to $35.   pleasant dollie-conversations during lunch time always bring you inspirations…

I love to see everyone’s travel dolls. some collectors bring exotic dolls with them—the dolls you dont often have chances to see in your local stores,   like Chataine, City Smart, etc.  you always learn something new from other collectors.

Just in Case you forgot my Travel doll, her name is  “Eleven”, she has traveled to many places with me,  here she is (on the right), with her fellow travel dolls,  on  “Barbie Loves Art” Barbie Day (Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC), she is dressed up in  Monet WaterColors:
