New Barbie Dolphin Magic and Fashionistas sets

Looking at these I can concur: Mattel is pushing the playline series more and more each year. Please notice the fabric swimsuits and the fabric mermaid tale. It is obvious they are focusing on the playline dolls more than the Collector ones. Let’s see if that will pay off. Thank you soooooooooooooooooooo much, Muhammed Bagci for these.

Barbie Dolphin Magic is a 60 minutes spcial that will premier this fall.
Synopsis: In this fun, underwater adventure, Barbie and her sisters visit Ken at his summer internship where he works at a coral reef researching dolphins. While diving and exploring the reef, the sisters discover rare, rainbow-colored dolphins who only visit once a year. This amazing find encourages them to learn more about preserving the coral and all the sea life that lives there. That’s when they meet Isla, a mysterious new friend who’s also on a mission to save the coral. What seems like a simple task turns out to be quite the adventure when it’s revealed Isla is really a mermaid. But there’s no time to celebrate having a mermaid for a friend, because Isla needs the help of Barbie and her sisters, and the gemstone dolphins to save the day.


The dolls above are cute, but I am most excited about these Fashionistas packs. The AA in the yellow dress and the one with dark hair and blue dress are everything! I swear this line is getting better and better. Of course the quality of the fashions and of the accesories could be better, but the design is spot on.


I don’t know yet when these will be released so stay tuned for more info.

As a lot of you have already noticed, Kira is making a comeback! Wow. I love that they use more and more of the 90s “forgotten” face molds. This series is getting better every year. If it only had articulation again…

New articulated curvy Barbie body?

The Barbie Style Instagram account just published this image that shows a very beautiful AA curvy articulated body? Could this mean we we’ll be getting it in the next wave of Fashionistas? Maybe even a tall and a petite articulated body?

Brunch time! Tag your bestie.? #barbie #barbiestyle

As I mentioned on my page, I think Mattel is putting more effort in the playline series than in the collector one. Such a shame…
