See you someday...

Life happens, things changes and I'm a new person. At the moment, I have decide to give a undefined break here. I may come back, I may not...too many things happened and be a Barbie collector is not a priority for now. I really enjoyed the time and the friends I had made. I'm very grateful for all the wonderful people I had contact here, but it's time to let go and wish you all all good and great things :-)

Vintage Wednesday - 1964 Vintage Brunette Swirl Ponytail Barbie Doll #850

I found this doll on eBay(pictures are from eBay)and I had to share here...she's in a great condition as there are no green marks on her ears or anywhere to be found on the skin and the colors looks so vibrate that I wonder how this doll has been stored, I'm impressed to see a doll in a good condition like this considering she's from 1964!
The dress is not the original one, the one in the picture is actually from a fashion Barbie set called Barbie fun and games (#1619)

Her hair was not redone, it contains the original hair lace as well.

 Eyes and lips with original paint.

I wish I could put my hands on one like this...
Happy Wednesday to all!

Celebrity Monday - Goldie Hawn

Goldie Jeanne Hawn (born November 21, 1945) is an American actress, film director, producer, and occasional singer.  (
Wow! I'm getting old...I remember having a lot of fun  watching movies that Goldie Hawn was on it, she looked fresh and young, but yes, the time has passed and I can say that she had done not one but a extensive list of movies, shows and likes. She was so funny and  did such a great job that along her career she has always done her part very well as a actress.

 Her curriculum is very, very extensive, so let's get the nail in the head! The Barbie was was based on her well know role as a go go dancer on a variety show called Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. I'm sure she must be on the most beautiful ladies in the late 60's list...I'm glad Mattel was able to caught her talent and make the doll. A sample of her role on the show...

Only thing...this doll is for collectors who appreciate a nice doll and understands why she was made. You don't want have to explain to a kid why she has tattoos all over, for example, nothing against giving it for a kid, but even on says she's for the adult collector! It's a piece of art with reasons behind every detail. She's a black label doll and it was released on 2009.

Mattel had done a really good job on this one, face and character wise, details were very well placed and showed.

What do you think, did you like it?
Have a great folks! God Bless you!

Skipper 50th Anniversary Doll

I haven't been on Barbie for a long time and today when I was browsing around the website, I'm sure it's nothing new...This doll caught my eyes. I think it was a very good idea from Mattel, since Skipper's lovers can add this piece of cutie to their collection.
 The doll is a re-creation of the fashion outfit above. According to fashion doll guide this set is very rare to find, specially the whole set.

I like the "old dolls", some of you may know my preference for the 80's looks ones, but for me the "modern vintage look" on the new one was the best, i really like it!

She's a gold label, a 2014 vintage reproduction and it's sold out on - actual price was $39.95, but you can get on eBay, if you are lucky, for no less than $100 plus shipping and handling.

Ps: Pictures are from Barbie

I also found a picture, on eBay, where you can check the doll in the box

Really nice!!

Good Thursday Folks!

    1992 Walmart 30th Anniversary Star Special Limited Edition Barbie Doll

    I have progressed some how...remember THIS post about the Barbie's dolls I have found on my shed, well here is the fist one!

    She came in the box like this:

    picture from eBay
     She was dirty, but not in a bad condition...I washed her clothes and gave her a nice bath, she looked like new! I didn't feel comfortable to comb and "fix" the hair, so it's the same way as when I got her.

     So, one less to go!

    Good Tuesday folks!!

    Celebrity Monday - Lindsay Lohan

    Hello everyone, after a long vacation, meaning break from myself I guess, i came to say hi...Hi!!! Well, let's start all over again...hope to stay longer...

    I grew up up watching  a lot movies that Lindsay Lohan was in it, she was (and is) very good for a kid actress, despite all the "trouble" she got herself into (I'm not here to judge, but her bad behavior was for while the principal talking on the celebrity world) , she has done a awesome job on a lot movies out there.

    Folks, enough for  gossip!lol

    Lindsay Morgan Lohan[1] (/ˈl.ən/;[2] born Lindsay Dee Lohan; July 2, 1986) is an American actress, model and recording artist. She began her career as a child fashion model when she was three, and was later featured on the soap opera Another World for a year when she was 10. (
    There is not much to say about her, other than she has been in a lot of things on TV and has been in a lot of trouble as well, then my question...So, why Mattel would make a doll of her, again...we all make mistakes in our lives, but then I go and buy a doll, ask me how I'll explain to my kid that she's really famous because...she's a great actress, OK, done! (I actually think the doll was released before she got on the media for the bad reasons...I think the doll was released a little bit before all the mess, on 2005) then, the way kids are born these days, knowing more than you about everything!OK Google it and you'll find more "bad" that "good" pictures of her. Oh! Well, I'm going too deep on these thoughts, jeez I don't even have a kid yet ha ha I'll worry when time comes and talk about the doll...

    Ok, the doll was a part of the "My scene Goes Hollywood" set on 2005, back then she was "The mean girls" movie star, because she was the good soul in the movie, so it explained, i guess...

    I was not impressed by this doll, I guess it may be a OK "play doll", but not a good addition for my collection, I was never a fan of the "My scene" line and haven't ever bought any of them, so it may be the reason I didn't like that much this one, I don't like the big heads, i like the older molds, but well, Mattel has to follow the market, the competition and a variety of lovers, so after at all she's a OK doll!

    Have a good week, Folks! God Bless you!
