Barbie Collection: Around the World with Fashion

July 25, 2013

A friend of mine and fellow Barbie collector, Silvia, has just stumbled across this amazing UK official Barbie site called “Barbie Collection: Around the World with Fashion“. It’s the 2013 version of the Discover the World With Barbie series and there’s also a French site for this collection: Les Robes De Voyages.

    Hi Ada!
    This collection was re-launched in Spain last fall and in Bmania forum there are a lot of pics. Most of the dresses are the same as the 2000s collection but modified to fit the belly button body. Unfortunately, some accesories are missing from the previous collection :(

      Hi, Mary! I realised that after I published the article. I was so happy they brought back this collection but I’m so dissapointed now. If the Romanian dress is the same I’m going to write an open letter to Mattel.

    Do you know why they used all these old designs. A lot of them are a few years ago. Did Mattel found some extra somewhere in a box ;-)

    Hello, I just stumbled upon your blog and found this entry. I would love to get these each week. Is there a way to subscribe to the UK magazine if you live in the USA? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    How many dresses in total are there in the collection in Australia?

    The collection needs shoes to accompany the dresses
    Dosent Mattel realise that women like to look good from top to toe?
    Barbie is aware of that.

    I have started the collection and have 22 dresses and the guy that brings them to our store in our town decided he was not coming no longer so I am missing cuba and canada so frustrating and the company said the only way I can get them if I buy the whole collection through them what a joke!
