Christmas Loot #1

Before I go on to another Christmas themed doll, I wanted to share some of the dolls I received this year under the tree.

I don't know if I mentioned that I love the space dolls. I have always been fascinated with space and everything that has to do with it. My dream job when I was in high school was working at NASA ground control in Houston. But knowing that I was not skilled in math or physics I abandoned that option and went into business (which has been a very fruitful option!)

Oh well, I can live out my dream job through Barbie right? Because she has held some 200 jobs or so through the years?

I was pleasantly surprised with her as one of my gifts.

The 1965 reproduction of My Favorite Career Miss Astronaut. I LOVE her! The mod look, the blond hair, everything! I love how she is proudly proclaiming that she IS indeed a rocket scientist standing with her helmet in tow next to her lunar module.

This next picture depicts a little better that her space suit is sparkly! Perfect for Barbie!

What I love most of all? Her little space mittens, space boots, and the flag. So cute!

I don't know why but the mittens are the most adorable things I have ever seen.

This was originally sold as an outift for Barbie and Ken even had a Mr. Astronaut outfit too! Check out here for pictures of the original outfit on the Fashion Doll Guide

Barbie sets the path for girls who want to be anything. I admire anyone who challenges girls to be in different industries that were primarily dominated by men. I have a girlfriend who got her Ph.D. in physics and now works at a huge computer company in research and development. She is one of the brains behind your computer processors. :)

Go Girls. And Go Barbie!

See you next time :)

Congrats, she's a great gift.

Love the details on her outfit, especially the zippered boots.

I love the repro dolls, they give us a chance of getting to the rare outfits without paying a fortune.

I agree! While it's awesome to have an authentic vintage, I now have the vintage dolls I love at less than half the price. And my Enchanted Evening is even out of the box! It's so fun to have her on display. :)

I love the boots too. So very mod!
