Barbie and Mattel have honored six “sheroes” at the Variety Power of Women Luncheon by presenting them with their own OOAK Barbie dolls. Ava DuVernay, Kristin Chenoweth, Emmy Rossum, Trisha Yearwood, Eva Chen (Lucky editor-in-chief) and 5-year-old fashion designer Sydney “Mayhem” Keiser have now their own Barbie dolls.

While I really don’t get the 5 year old designer thing, I really like the dolls. It would be a great idea if Mattel would create an actual collector series with powerful and influential people. It would bea great for both adult collectors and children.

Who would you like to see represented in such a series?

Barbie Signature Style Barbie Dolls 2015

Two new playline Barbie dolls are up on Amazon. Kind of expensive if you ask me, but they are nice. Not wow, but nice.

I’m kind of over these kind of gowns for Barbie. They have made such nice street style fashions for Barbie so I wish they would do the same with her formal gowns. Nobody in their right mind would wear these dresses in real life.

Cherry Pie Picnic Barbie Sample?

Helen from Helen’s Dollsaga has found an auction on Chinese eBay, TaoBao, with what looks like another sample of the Cherry Pie Picnic doll. Looks like it’s a combination of Cherry Pie with some Shamrock Celebration accessories and a never before seen dress.

The seller also has an auction for a nude Queen of The Dark Forest Barbie.

Can’t wait for the Queen to be on sale and I must admit I like Cherry Pie Picnic in a dress rather than in trousers.

Golden Eternity – Portugal Convention extra Doll

My dear friends Macelo Jacob and Mónica Núñez del Castillo (Monlew) have teamed up yet again to create a beautiful doll for the Portuguese Convention that is taking place as we speak.

Golden Eternity Barbie.
Limited edition Extra doll 25 pieces
Convention doll Portugal “”Os saudosos anos 80″

Golden Eternity Barbie has a special meaning for Portuguese collectors as Maria Campos, president of the Portuguese Doll Collector Club and Chairwoman at Official Barbie convention in Portugal, has express herself:

GOLDEN ETERNITY…
… This is the way we will keep this girl in our hearts: Shining and forever…

We chose our convention theme for this year to be “Os saudosos anos 80″ (the wistful 80’s) as this was the decade that officially introduced Barbie to the Portuguese market and because most of us, Portuguese collectors, played with Barbie dolls then and we have fantastic memories from that decade.
A fact is that decade brought us an exclusive Barbie, made exclusively for the Portuguese market and that’s why “Augustus Barbie” is one of my favorite Barbie dolls from the 80´s. As she is so special, that doll inspired us to create an exclusive limited edition of 25 dolls, initially only for the people who worked with us in the convention this year, but soon we notice that she will be so, but so amazing, that we would love to share this gorgeous with other Portuguese collectors! Special thanks and congratulations to all the lucky ones.

“Golden Eternity” is an actual doll with an 80’s inspiration for the 2nd Portuguese Doll Convention. A golden recreation of one of the most exclusive dolls we have and will surely stay in our hearts forever.
We were lucky to know talented Marcelo Jacob and Mónica Nuñéz last year at Madrid Fashion doll show convention, they offer their help to make something special for us for our party and they did.
As Portuguese collectors know Barbie dolls in the 80´s came and were made in Spain and this is what has happened again with this glorious doll
It is great how Barbie joins people from many countries and helps to make new friends.
We wait for you in Portugal with our arms opened to enjoy our favorite doll.
