Barbie started with me back in 1964 when I got my very first Barbie Doll. Well it wasn't actually Barbie, but her cute little sister Skipper. Then I acquired a Bubblecut Barbie and Midge, followed by Skooter, Ricky, Ken, and Francie. In 1967, I was one of the lucky girls who participated in Mattel’s promotion. I traded in one of my old dolls along with $1.50, and received a brand new mod chocolate bon bon Twist 'n Turn Barbie.
Barbie was my very favorite pastime as a child. I can still recall being embarrassed, because I seemed to play Barbie’s longer than my friends. I also remember standing in the toy department (more than once) dreaming about Barbie’s amazing outfits. The one that especially stood out was “Solo in the Spotlight”. Once I started collecting, it was one of the first outfits I purchased.
I love all the tech stuff out there today. So it only seemed logical for me to build a website. I wanted the site to be a wealth of information on every doll from the vintage era, as well as a valuable reference tool. And as an added bonus, I had another place to share my entire Barbie collection! As time went on, the site grew to include much more than just dolls from the vintage era.
