Barbie Fashion Icon of the 60's

About Me

The Barbie on the left has belonged to me for over 40 yrs. I was 13 when I received her for Christmas and she is the only Barbie that survived my childhood;  Barbie was displayed on her stage until I went off to college and then boxed up for the next 35 yrs.  While she was in that box, I played years of volleyball and softball,  finished college, learned to fly, got married, raised two sons and worked for 25 years; Barbie never once crossed my mind.  Three years ago for the lack of nothing better to do, I unpacked my childhood treasures and among them found a Chatty Cathy doll some Liddle Kiddles, a Crissy doll and my beautiful Live Action Barbie.  To make a long story short I never put her back in that box and as you can see she has a few more Barbie friends.   I fell in love again with my Hippie Girl and realized how special and beautiful the vintage Barbie's really are.   My friends and co-workers laugh or roll their eyes when I tell them that I have a Barbie Collection but when I show them my dolls or their photos that laugh turns into an OMGosh!!!  What a lucky kid I was to have grown up in the Vintage Barbie/Mattel era.
