DOTW Special Edition Mariachi Mexico

March 21, 2014

I had no idea this DOTW Special Edition Mariachi Mexico doll was produced until this morning when I stumble upon pictures of her on Flickr. She is so cute! I hope Linda decides to continue the DOTW line. Maybe add some more countries. I don’t think we’ll be getting new dolls this year, but maybe next year?

    I agree with you Dita…!
    Mattel has a lot of potential to really keep Barbie Doll collectors hooked on buying more and more barbie dolls if only they would go outside their box and stop limiting the possibilities of creating new and exciting Barbie dolls with new and vintage flair. I myself stopped collection the dolls of the world, for several reasons… #1, the same countries year after year…SPAIN, MEXICO, BRAZIL, JAPAN, CHINA, HAWAII, SCOTLAND,FRANCE, Etc,,,,,BOOOoooooRING..! none the less I no longer collect that line. The other thing is the using of the same ol’ face molds…Mattel has so many vintage face molds that can and should be utilized in the creating of new dolls, yet they choose to use the same face molds..time after time.. again…BOOOoooRING..! Countries like, KOSOVO, ISRAEL, LEBANON, ERITREA, LAOS, VIETNAM, ETHIOPIA, GUATEMALA, EL SALVADOR, HONDURAS, MALTA, CRIMEA…etc…. (take a look at the Ninimomo website…) Mattel needs to partner with them…. Come On Mattel get with the NEW PROGRAM…!

    It’s my understanding that the world is larger than just the few countries Mattel has Barbie represent…. #2 Again..back to the “Face Mold” issues…. the face molds, Mackie, the Lara, and lately, Steffie are beautiful but SOOOooooo OVER USED…. the face mold used to make Goddess of Africa… and a plethera of other dolls with the same face mold is also EXTREMELY Tired and Boring… ENOUGH…!!!! We get it… but Mattel doesn’t..SAD..! Unless Mattel starts hiring more innovative, spontaneous and more edgy designers that are allowed to think outside the narrow box thy are in… I will not continue spending thousands of dolls year after year on Barbie. I sue to buy her weekly..and now I just shop thrift stores and yard sales for her….

    1. The Heart Family Face Mold/Jazzie- (2-total)
    This mold would be great to be added as a Barbie friend, re-styled and re-tooled, this doll face mold is beautiful. I have seen doll OOAK designers re-do this face mold and it looks wonderful..! on Flckr, I saw a design of this doll re-bodied on a Fashionista articulated Barbie body and re-named LuLu… super cute..!

    2. The 1979 SunSpell Goddess/Italian Face Mold… PLEASE RE-USE this face mold… Kinda reminds me of Sophia Loren..! Gorgeous.. bring her back.. Barbie collectors would be all over it..!

    3. The Super Star Barbie-Christie Face Mold- bring it back, make her Latin/Afro-American, Beautiful face mold..!

    4. Vintage 1979 Starr & Friends, Traci, and Chelsea doll face molds… time to be creative and re-do…. don’t change, just improve..! They would be an awesome re-use, minus the awful body style… re-body them on articulated Barbie bodies..and re-name.

    Get the Picture…!?

    Correction: Tika, not Yika… LOL… I can be so passionate at time about this subject….

    Absolutely. I have the suspicion, that Matell focus this collection only on countries in which they can sell the doll very well. What else is the reason for so many mexican, irish, chinese and spanish and italian dolls?

    And please, dear Mattel all your french dolls are nowhere to find in france. Maybe in night clubs or on helloween parties. Even in France there are so many different folcloristic costumes!

    I check daily the showcase but no dolls in sight.

    Maybe they quit this line. :-(
