I have a lot of Barbies, maybe around 100 but I find myself favoring the Gene, Tyler etc.. dolls so much more. It could be that they are so much easier to sew for.
There is a grace and beauty to the gene/tyler dolls that as cute as Barbie can be , she just doesn't compare. Not that I'm sending my Barbie's down the pike but they all remain downstairs while Gene and her wardrobe are upstairs for anyone to view and enjoy. Seeing them there inspires me to make more clothes and keep saving for that all important Trent to stand at their side.
One thing about the Barbies is that though I have no origionals (except 1 Ken and 1 Alan) the ones I do have are not going to be produced anymore. Therefore, they remain valuable in a semi-monetary sense but to me my Gene's are the cream of the crop!
