Barbie for big girls.

Day at the Museum

Some of you already know this but in case you don’t, I am guest blogging for the next couple of days for my good friend Rogier of Dutch Barbie World.  He is currently attending the Paris Fashion Doll Festival and is sending photos on to me so I can report for him.  He will return the favor for me while I attend NBDCC and Integrity Toys conventions.  When you attend conventions like these it is simply too much most of the time to experience the event and then turn it around and blog about it within a timely manner.  So…Rogier and I came up with a solution….one person experiences and reports while the other writes, edits and publishes.  Win, win. 

**NOTE!!  Republishing these photos without consent is prohibited!! They are property of Dutch Barbie World.  If you want to post these photos, you need to post the link to either Rogier’s blog or mine.  It’s that simple.**

Day 1:  The Barbie Exhibit at Musée des Arts décoratifs

This is a much anticipated exhibit going on currently at Les Arts Décoratifs.  Rogier was able to go today and snuck some photos for all of us.  We are posting only a few of the images from this exhibit as photography was “frowned upon”.  According to Rogier, the exhibit was beautifully done and very thoughtfully curated.  It is not a huge collection of Barbie but is of very high quality.   It was a “good for all ages” exhibit that “Brings across the magic of Barbie”.  If you have a chance to see it…a must for any Barbie lover.

For most of the Silkstone collectors, the pièce de résistance of this exhibit were the elaborate BFMC sets designed and built by Lars Auvinen that Mattel loaned to the museum for this exhibit.  Unbelievable!!

  4. The sets look gorgeous, wouldn’t we love to take some of them home with us, and as you say, an excellent job of curating this exhibition.
