A new Barbie with Ken set has hit stores and it’s something we don’t see very often. Barbie with Ken Closet & Convertible set is a huge set that comes with two dolls, a closet and a car. Quite a weird combination but why not? You do get a lot of stuff.
I’ve never been a fan of this series, but the new Barbie Glitz dolls are also improved just like the other playline dolls. I’m glad to see the very pretty Neko/Renee facemold used. I must get her. Each doll is $8.99 on Amazon.
The Barbie fashion packs are slowly becoming more realistic even in the playline series. Finally! The bags are still hard plastic, as I have mentioned many times before, but the fashions are cute.
Even the same old boring Barbie dolls with hair accessories are a tad pretier.
I’m very curious as to how the 2016 playline dolls will look and I don’t mean the Style or Fashionistas ones. I mean the really basic ones. Maybe they’ll improve them even more? We’ll just have to wait and see.
This month I’ll beheading to Rome for thr last doll convention of the year, the Roma Fashion Doll Festival 2015 organized by Artist Creations. Can’t wait to see the amazing Rome once again and spend some quality time with my friends. Of course I’ll be blogging this entire time, but right now I want to draw your attention to the Charity Auction that has started on eBay that will benefit Fondazione Alessio Tavecchio. There are a LOT of amazing dolls including the Fairy of The Dark Forest Barbie prototype. I so need her!!
Check all the autions by clicking on the name of the dolls.
Three new Barbie careers dolls are up for sale on Amazon. While I’m glad we don’t have a pink fire fighter, I would still like to see more diversity in this line, more spectacular and never used before careers.

Ok, we do know we’ll be getting a Andy Warhol Campbell’s Soup Barbie doll but what you don’t know is that there will be TWO of them! Yes, one will be Platinum. Yes, collectors will go crazy again in their rush to get her. Oh, well…
Ava Duvernay Barbie Doll
Ava is an American director, screenwriter, film marketer, and film distributor and is the first African-American female director to have their film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Another piece of news comes from Brazil where the next doll in the Global Glamour Barbie series was unveiled at the Brazil Barbie con. Image via.
While I do like the sketch I would have loved for them to create something with a different country and culture. I’ve seen Brazil in the DOTW series a few times before so something fresh would have been more interesting.
So whata re your thoughts on the new dolls? More are coming!
