This doll arrived on Barbie’s Birthday ( or National Barbie Day), March 9th. She is a gift from a friend.
She quickly adopted some New York Attitude –her look tells you she would be the one who quarrels with the cashiers at supermarket or passengers on the bus if they move too slow.
she is the Happy Holidays 2016 AA Barbie doll, although she does not look very happy.
She has a new face mold “Claudette” that I wanted but didn’t have, so she is my very first “Claudette”. She may be not suitable as a “Happy Holidays” doll, but she makes a cool Runway model.
She had glue inside her head. Mattel made a little progress on the glue heads: the glues are now water based, not oil based, so you will see less seepage, is this change good enough for you? as I told the story before, Mattel will not throw away the new auto hair-rooting machines, glue must be used. I hate any types of glues in the dolls heads, this doll is now glue-free, I removed it.
