2016 Soda Shop Barbie doll IRL images

January 24, 2016

The 2016 Barbie Fan Club has just started and one of the EXCLUSIVE dolls we’ll be able to buy is the Soda Shop Barbie doll. I have talked about her before, just when the promo pictures were first presented, and now I have some IRL images of her (thank you, Raymond!) that have given me the possibility to make up my mind about her.

While her face is cute and sweet and I do appreciate the white underskirt (is that what it’s called?) I HATE the hem on the skirt. So cheap. :( Overall, I’m not getting her. So far I think I’ll just try to get the Black and White Platinum doll. And maybe the articulated Black Dress Silkie.

What are your thoughts on this girl?

    She looks like a project a kid would do to practice their sewing in a home economics class. As a whole, she just looks awkward and infinished. Yet another failure Mattel….

    I like her outfit but I don’t like the expression on her face. She looks stuck-up or even bitch.

    I think she’s cute, but I have to say I’m disappointed in the eyes on these dolls. They seem vacant. That is my main disappointment. in my Cherry Pie doll. As far as this girl’s outfit: I’m not a fan of poodle skirts. If the poodle and ribbon can be removed, I’d be tempted.

    Her outfit is cute, but I’m not a fan of the vintages face mold, so an easy pass for me.
