...looked a lil' somethin' like this...
I even have a painting of a 50's Barbie in my house- it's the classic 50's make-up and hair and Barbie- which I love.
People have said, oh this looks like a little Barbie house... I smile..and think, excitedly, "yes my pink couch does look like it's from a Barbie house" and I think about how I never had the Barbie Dream house...but now I have a Barbie "dream couch" ha ha ha
Ofcourse Barbie's proportions aren't real, but she is just a doll. No one has a head as big as Dora the Explorer...ha ha ha, and I have never wanted arms that don't bend or feet that are always ready to go into a high heel. But my favorite part was dressing her up in fun clothes...it was like a having a little mannequin. My grandma used to sew clothes for my moms Barbies! I wish I still had them!
Well here's a little treat...the first EVER Barbie commercial from 1959....I love the stairs in the commercial too - it was played during the Mickey Mouse Club...
Barbie has inspired everyone from Bob Mackie to Nicki Minaj...!
Who else loved Barbie and/or still does?
Kandee...who wishes I still had my Peaches N' Cream Barbie
