Barbie for big girls.

For the Vintage Barbie Collector…Let’s Play Barbie

I am not a vintage Barbie collector but I certainly admire those who are.  You will not meet a more Barbie knowledgeable group than vintage Barbie collectors.  Mattel announced at Barbiecon that they would be releasing a Barbie reproduction set that would give you a choice of three different hair colors of a vintage reproduction Barbie and you would get 4 vintage reproduction outfits with it.  This set was a huge crowd favorite at the Mattel preview at convention and now it is finally available to order.  This set was designed by the very talented and fellow collector..Mattel’s Bill Greening.  The set retails for….ready for it….$175.00.  I guess you have to look at the fact you are getting 4 outfits and the doll in vintage reproduced packaging.   This price may put it out of many collectors price range but it sure does look like a fabulous set and a must have for any vintage reproduction collector.  I am considering this set.

    I ordered the redhead – mostly I want the outfits. I may sell the doll if she doesn’t grab me. I think the idea of sending an outfit each season is clever, but I would much rather get them all NOW – lol!

    Hope you have a great weekend, Rebecca!!!!!

    The blond and red head colors seem off, the color choices Mattel Made for these two colors S T I N K. I’ve looked at the real photos from ebay sellers of these dolls hair colors. YIKES!!
