Cherry Pie Picnic

Bill Greening and Mattel have given the collecting community a fabulous start to a new series of dolls.  The series will be called “Willows, WI”.  It is a tribute to classic Americana and you can’t get more American than Apple or Cherry pie.  This one may be worth it for the little picnic basket alone…adorable!

Cherry Pie Picnic Barbie® Doll

Gold Label®

Designed by: Bill Greening

Release Date: 4/1/2015

Product Code: CGT29

No more than 4700 units produced worldwide.

She is a Barbiecollector direct exclusive so only available there.  She retails for $75.00.  Kind of pricey for vinyl.  She is cute though.

Barbie Fan Club Membership Renewal Starts Today

2015 BFC membership

If you were a member last year, you can renew your membership starting today 1/7/2015.  If you want to sign up as a first time member, you will need to wait until 1/14/2015.  The BFC has sold out for the last couple years but it has taken a while to do it so don’t know if you need to rush for this one.  It looks like there will not be an “official” club doll this year.  There are, however, a number of club exclusives that make it worth my interest.

Here are some of the fun perks of the club this year.

This may be another platinum offering like the previous black and white collection offerings but don’t quote me on it.  If this will be a platinum offering, I predict this one will go fast like the others.  I may actually enter the shark tank for this one Winking smile

Aaaaahhhhh!  Do my eyes deceive me??!!  A pink Silkstone offering for 2015?!!!  Ummm…no brainer…I’m in.  Please oh please don’t make this a platinum offering.  If it is, I would not only enter the shark tank…I would bring a honkin’ harpoon with me.  Just sayin’ it up front people.

This would be the adorable preview we saw at convention this year I believe.  I will be adding this one to the collection too.  I mean come on…the picnic basket alone is worth it.
