Barbie for big girls.

Barbie gets a Tim Gunn Makeover

Word on the street today is that Mattel and Tim Gunn have partnered on a set of dolls.  The Project runway guru has designed two dolls and of course clothing.  It sounds like the dolls and clothing packets will be available at Target and in August.  All I can say is cute, cute, cute!!

  5. Hello from Spain: thank you for sharing this news. It is a pity that in Spain there are going to sell for now. The doll collection is beautiful. I like them all. The clothes and accessories they are wearing is gorgeous. If you buy any edited photos … I am excited about these new Barbies. Keep in touch.

    Love, love, love, but Target here in Australia doesn’t get the exclusives, which is a shame, so looks like I will be stalking ebay!!!!

    • Hi Marion. Oh man! So sorry that Australia won’t be selling these. That stinks! You will be able to get them from too. Do you have a shipping buddy?
