With the whole moving thing, I have been going through things and trying to purge as much as possible. I try not to hold onto anything that I haven't used or don't plan to use or will be easily replaced, etc.
One of the boxes that I kept opening over and over again, was the box with my few remaining barbie dolls, I decided that even if my daughters broke them that very evening, at least they got to see the light of day and get played with one more time. That plus that fact that I had to super glue the heads onto two of them helped me decided to take them out of my memory box and bring them back into circulation.
And for Melanie's viewing pleasure . . .
And did you remember Mel, that there were two sets of Barbie and the Rockers? I didn't until I googled them to get the red head's name. Apparently, I have Barbie from the 1985 edition, and Ken and Diva from the 1986 edition. Boo me for not remembering that my sister had the 85 Diva and the 86 Barbie. (That makes them sound like car,s hee hee)
Oh, and I still have Ken's rockin' long silver jacket, but the silver jumpsuit practically dissolved. Luckily they were issued with their own 'concert t-shirts so I still have a Rockers thing to put on him.
And the only other Barbie that survived my childhood (other than Hammer)
Hmmmmm . . ..anybody recognize this little lady from the Toy Story movie? I've always called her great shape Barbie, but I didn't google to confirm. The one on the left is the original, while the one on the right is a Christmas present from my sister when they re-issued her for Toy Story 3. I was really escited when I saw her in the movie because they even got the leg warmers right!
Of course new Barbie's leg warmers are sewn to the suit so they don't come off, but I'm trying not to count that against her.
Now if only I could decide what to do with my (and my husband's) original baby blankets.
