I am crazy about Barbies. I have been collecting for several years and I sometimes try to sew or crochet fashions for my dolls and take photos of them.
Besides Barbie, I also love Susie, Jenny, Dynamite Girls, J-dolls and some others but I'm trying not to collect too many categories!
I hope I will have time to browse around this site. It looks great.
Thanks for taking the time to say 'hi' and for becoming a part of the community. I look forward to seeing your creations :)
Hi Valerie! It's nice to see you. What kind of Barbie do you collect? Playline? Silkstone?
Thanks for the welcomes.
I like lots of Barbies, but I have only 1 Silkstone. Most are playline, some collector (all deboxed and mostly redressed), and probably my favorites are the mods. I originally had 2 Barbies as a girl, one straightleg standard brunette and one Malibu. I still have them and some of their original fashions. As an adult I got a lot more mod and a few vintage Barbies.
I didn't intend to collect any of Barbies little sister or cousin dolls, and I have resisted buying any Kellys, but recently a friend gave me a Tutti and a Skipper and I also bought a Malibu Skipper because, well, she's irresistible. I also have a few Francies and Casey, so it's not strictly Barbies & friends. I admit I am sexist, though. I don't collect Ken or other male dolls. I just can't get as excited about dressing them as the girl dolls.
