Winter is coming and Barbie and her sisters are getting ready for the holidays. Check out this very cute Barbie Life in The Dream House: Sisters’ Cozy Cabin plus the dolls that can be bought seperatly.
Love this set dispite the pink. Definetly will be getting it.
The new Ballet Wishes Barbie 2014 can be now bought on Target.com. A few days ago I saw just a small image of her and was not impressed. Ok, to be perfectly honest I thought she was a disaster. Why? Because I’m sick of pink ballerinas with a Mackie face! I would love something more edgy, more extravagant. I’ve been told she is the perfect doll for an older child that wants to start a collection and I agree. But then again…pink?
Anyway, looking at these HQ images she doesn’t look that bad and for $24.99 she’s a good deal.
I’m back blogging on my favorite blog. Well…sort of. I’ll keep things in a low key as wounds are not as easily healed. Anyway I want to send a big shout and thanks to my friend Ľubo Holík for helping me run the Facebook page. He’s one of the greatest and sweetest doll collectors I’ve met since joining this community. Thank you again, Ľubo for your help.
Because I’ve been away for almost a week a lot of things have happened in the dolly world so here’s a list of all the major events I’ve missed:
New dolls have been sneaked on BFC today. I’m not going to post images (you can already see them online if you know where to look) but let me share my thoughts about them.
*Fan made image. Not official.
There are threee new OZ dolls: Tin Man, Scare Crow and the Lion. B-O-R-I-N-G! I don’t even have to show you the images because they look almost the same as the 2009 dolls. So dissapointing. I’m sorry for saying this, but this is just crazy.
*These are images of the 2009 collection, not the 2014 one.
There’s also a very cute girl designed by Bill Greening, dressed in pink and holding a pink teddy bear. I like her but I must say I’m underwhelmed by these sneaks. Let’s hope the next sneaked dolls will be nicer.
Inspired by the wonderful FW 2013 Haute Couture collections by Dolce & Gabbana, this amazing OOAK Barbie doll by Magia 2000 was a gift for the talented Mr. Stefano Gabanna as a Christmas gift.
Here’s what Mario and Gianni from Magia 2000 had to say about her:
Mixed with a inspired Bianca Balti face painting, she wears a silk satin , fully printed and customized with a portion of the Canaletto’s painting, replica of the original dress of the Dg collection, lined with black georgette.
the printing of this fabric took several tests, to achieve the correct size for the doll and match the pieces of the wide ballgown. She also wears a black silk chiffon hooded cloak, fully hand encrusted with French blakc lace in different sizes.
She holds a custom Venitian mask, we created with papier marchier technique and hand embroidered with tiny pearls in whiote and gold colour, flowers and feathers.
Earrings have been custominzed with replica of the painting with matching coral color beads and clear crystals on gold base.
She has been completely repainted with professional acrylic colours and sealing.
A new elaborated hairstyle and fine matching jewellery set.
I just woke up to this amazing piece of news. Mattel has released the second wave of Barbie Glam Luxe Style dolls and they are just amazing! This has got to be Mattel’s best series ever. And it also has Midge! I’m so in love with them.

They are so amazing and that Midge is to die for! My faves are Midge and Raquelle. But every single one of them is jus gorgeous. They retail for $19.99 and you can already find them at Target. Kudos Mattel.
Wow, guys! It’s almost Christmas. I’ve been very, very, very busy at work as these are the last days before the winter holidays so forgive me for not posting as much as I wanted. can’t wait for the holiday so I can sit in bed all day, write on my blogs and take pictures of my dolls.
Anyway here are some new dolls and playsets that can already be found in shops.
Barbie Sisters Bike for Two! Doll 2-Pack
I do wish they would stop with the pink. Girl = pink is such bullshit! Girls like other colours, you know?
Barbie Sisters Safari Doll and Tent Playset
I have a thing for tents. I love this theme and one of my favorite Barbie series is Camp Barbie form the 90s.
Barbie Bedtime Princess Doll
Remember Bedtime Barbie from 1994? I so loved that doll and I remember seeing the commercial on the cartoon channels I used to watch in the weekends.
Barbie Fairytale Birthday Princess Doll
Barbie Fairytale Mix and Match Dress Up Playset
And last but not least:
Barbie Fashionistas 2014
Well at least these have less pink! The first dress is really cut but I hate that they took away the articulation. Via
Hi, guys! Just a quick post to show you some new Barbie cars that just came out.
First we have the Barbie Sisters Safari Cruiser that looks nice but definetly not special enough for $19.99. I’ve seen sooooooooooo many Barbie cruisers over the years that they just bore me to death right now.
The second car is a new version of the classic Barbie Glam Convertible that retails at $14.99. Good price but I would really like a car that doesn’t make Barbie look like a giant in it. Can you please respect the scale of the doll and create a car suitable for her hight?
