The last days of 2011 have brought me one of the dolls I’ve been thinking for the entire year: Barbie Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci . My dear friend Catalin, who is also responsible for the fact that I Can Be…Katrina Kaif doll is in my collection, has given me this amazing present! There’s no need for me to tell you how amazing she is. The Mackie face looks so angelic and I LOVE her delicate articulated hands. But what most surprised me is her box. Clearly this doll was made for the European market as the text on both the front and the back of the box is written in many European languages INCLUDING Romanian.
Never in a million years did I expect that as Romania is such a young country when it comes to doll collecting. Our community is still small… I’m going to write an email to Mattel to ask them about this. Does this mean we’ll have more collector dolls here? Does this mean there’s going to be a Mattel Romania? Questions, question!
Can’t wait to find out the answer.
