Barbie of the month - January 2009

I'm so happy!!!!! Surfing around the Internet I found a picture of my first Barbie!!! Well, it's not the greatest picture, but... It's her... my first one... and of course because of this, she is the first in my "Barbie of the Month" collection. I present this to you for January :-)
She's from Brazil, the 1988-1989 collection. How I miss her...
This is introducing our "Barbie of the Month" collection series. If you have any requests or ideas please feel free to submit them to us and we will try to pool together the best ideas, and find some of the best pictures for the new series. Thanks a lot!!!

International Barbie house.

Check it out!!! One of the Brazilian versions of the American Barbie doll house. The idea was the same, just with different colors.

I remember been around 11 years old and one of my friends had one. I used to play with her and enjoy the time. Good times, good time...

First Barbie and the Remake.

Do you know the difference between the first Barbie doll and the reissue? It’s disappointing to discover that only after you can get your hands on the “big” one, that you can then figure out the real one, vs. the remake. Well, let’s take a look:
The "Real" first one:
• She has round holes with copper tubes in the bottom of her feet.

• Her eyes are very distinct. They are white with black outlines and bit of blue eye shadow. The later Barbies have blue irises. Also the eyebrows are much arched, not rounded.

• This is the face of the #1 and #2 Barbie doll. Her hair came in Blonde and Brunette styles. The second Barbie, also introduced in 1959, had no holes under her feet. Also the “skin” color was very pale.



The first vintage Barbie reproduction was released in 1994 to celebrate Barbie’s 35th Anniversary. And of course they are not exact with the first one. So, take note!
