Barbie for big girls.

Love in Praga

This past year at The National Barbie Doll Collector Convention, the talented Magia2000 team of Mario Paglino and Gianni Grossi presented a collection that was very close to their hearts.  They showcased a OOAK collection centered on the theme of love.  A fitting theme as they announced at this event that they would be tying the knot themselves later that year.   How special is that?!!  There wasn’t a dry eye in the house after that announcement.  With all of the love going on in that room, many collectors walked away with the right to purchase some of this stunningly beautiful collection.  They used a new system of drawing numbers and when your number was drawn you could choose from what was left or decline to purchase.  The people who had their numbers chosen early walked away with their first choice of the options.  I was lucky enough to have my number chosen while one of my favorites was still up for purchase.  Her name is “Love in Praga” which I understand to mean Love in Prague.  I am honored and so very pleased to have this one of a kind creation in my collection and was so happy to participate in this celebration of love at the NBDCC in 2015.

    Congrats! She is breathtaking Rebecca! I missed their party this year much to my disappointment. I am lucky enough to own 3 of their masterpieces and my eyes light up every time I look at them. ❤ 🙂

  2. You picked a great doll! I must say I am over taken with happiness! I love polkadots, see thru and pink! This also reminds me of Barbie’s Pink nighty p.j. set with the robe, from the 1st.doll. I have mine from my childhood and still just adore it! Her jewelry and purse are so perfect! Congrats on picking thus one! I can see this being copied.💗💖💓
