I love Barbie commercials. Who doesn’t?! I used to watch morning cartoons in the weekend just to see the beautiful Barbie commercials. So I was very happy when I found these new ones on the official French Barbie YouTube Chaneel. Check them out below.
If you follow me on Facebook and Flickr then you probably know the new playline Barbie dolls and sets I have uploaded yesterday. Seems like Mattel is really preparing for Christmas. So let’s see what we have new.

Sorry for the long absence but I was away for more than a week. That’s why I didn’t get a chance to write about the amazing dolls that are up for auction on the Pinceno Fashion Doll convention. Here’s the link to the auctions: LINK.
My favorite is, of course, Ninimomo’s Miss Salem. Just amazing! So bid, bid, bid! The money are going to a good cause!
I didn’t have time to show you the fall 2012 newsletter from Ninimomo. They have a lot of interesting articles and news. First you can check out pictures and info from the National Barbie Convention 2012.
Then you can meet Sheree Martin, the extremely talented designer responsible for creating NiniMomo’s new and amazing delegate displays and fantastic convention displays.
Also meet Meet Dave and Valerie Webster of Canada, winners of the Live Auction and Golden Ticket entries.
And last but NOT least, this year’s Rockets! The 5th Radio City Rockette celebrating the Holiday Season wears the classic “Toy Soldier” military inspired costume used yearly for the Christmas Spectacular.

Mattel Principal Designer Jim Holmes has designed 3 Barbie and Ken OOAK sets plus a OOAK Barbie and the prices are already very high. The sets are really pretty. I especially like Ken. He kind of reminds me of David Beckham. Besides of the 3 sets there’s also a beautiful collector book. Check them out below. I hope they’ll sell well!
While surfing on the Simba website I saw the new VW New Bulli Party Bus for Steffi Love and I must say I’m just wowed. So many details! Such great colors! Do you see this Mattel?!
Compare that with the new Barbie I Can Be Flight Attendant. Yes shes cute but as people pointed on facebook she’s so unrealistic. Too much! I would definetly buy Steffi Love and not because it’s a set and has a bus but because it’s so much fun.
If you’re into vintage dolls then suerly you know Pedigree’s Sindy. I’m more of a Hasbro Sindy fan, but, never the less, I admire the old 60s and 70s Sindy. A few days ago I saw an article about the new Sindy doll that i knew would come out in 2013 and that will now be produced by Tonner!
The first doll will be Trendy Girl Sindy. Can’t wait to see her!
“Bulldog Licensing signs Tonner Doll Company to produce a replica Sindy doll.
The popular Sindy dolls from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s are set to return in spring 2013.
Robert Tonner and the Tonner Doll Company will produce a replica Sindy doll for the collectors market, Bulldog Licensing has announced.
The British doll first launched in 1963 and went on to sell over 150 million units worldwide. The Sindy brand is still popular today, with classic dolls selling for as much as £1,500 on eBay, Top Shop featuring Sindy in its blogs and footwear brand Irregular Choice using Sindy in its 2012 Lookbook.
Tonner will be recreating the 1972 Trendy Girl Sindy and develop original and modern clothing styles to accompany the doll.
“We are really looking forward to bringing Sindy into the Tonner fold,” said Robert Tonner. “As a huge doll collector myself, it is quite a dream come true to be able to work with such an iconic name in the world of collectibles such as Sindy.”
Bulldog MD Rob Corney added: “We are delighted to have brought a market leader such as Robert Tonner on board for a programme that is growing rapidly. Sindy is big news at present and this is being reflected in the huge amounts of interest we are dealing with from the licensing community.”
