Mattel® Belk Barbie doll 2012

I just came across this beautiful doll while reading Sandra’s The Doll Cafe Facebook group. I’ve never heard before of this chain of shops, Belk, so I was very surprised to see that that there’s a Barbie doll created especially for them. And what a doll! Gorgeous in every way! I need her! ASAP!

Barbie goes back to…Brasil

Via Barbie Fashion News I have a very interesting piece of news! Seems like Mattel is going back to Brasil and will start again producing dolls there. Yey! I absolutly adore the Barbie dolls made by Estrela back in the 80s. They were so unique and so beautiful and I hope now they will keep up with those strandards and we can again enjoy the Brasilian Barbie dolls.

Playline news: Glam Car and Sweet Easter

This month two new Barbie playline dolls are coming out. First we have the 2013 Barbie Doll And Glam Convertible Vehicle Set. I love the car. Ok, it’s pink, but the shape is really nice. I don’t really care about the doll. Then we have this year’s Barbie Easter Sweetie Barbie Doll. Nice dress. I like the fact that the pink is not very strong.

Batman Ken and Catwoman Barbie 2013

By now you must have already seen the new Barbie and Ken dolls that are on sale at BarbieCollector.com and that are made to resemble the characters from the 60’s Batman tv series. Just like in the case of the Oz dolls I almost didn’t want to post this because I’m so dissapointed with this line. It’s a cool thing that they have a new series with a new theme, but poor Batman looks…soooooo….stiff. /:) Catwoman is cute and everything (don’t really care about the vintage mold) but she still looks too plain for me. No wow factor here.

I’m waiting now for the two Audrey Hepburn Barbie dolls (according to Doll Genie there will be one inspired by the Sabrina movie and one by Roman Holiday) and the Trina Turk doll and I hope they’ll not dissapoint. I’m wondering now if they’ll also do a Robin doll and maybe a Penguin one? :P

The Wizard Of Oz™ Barbie Collection 2013

I’m sooooooooo dissapointed and bored with this line I almost didn’t want to post this article. :( I’ve seen this theme SOOOO many times before I just don’t understand why they are making dolls from the original Wizard of Oz movie. Ok, great movie. Everybody loves but…enough is enough. Not even the new face molds excite me. Boring, boring, boring.
