Today I have some Barbie goodness. You are all going to LOVE them!
First, remember the picture of Daring Charming I was talking about when I created that post on him? (The one with my darling boy playing with him?) I found the picture. It was just so comical, he looks like a fallen King with his crown falling off. Hysterical!
Before I feature my NIB dolls, I rescued a couple from the thrift store. They had a LOT of dolls there but nothing really caught my eye. All were naked, newer body style. If they were old then yes, I would have snatched them right up. Some had chewed hands from pets. I have enough of those already. But these two really needed a good home so I picked them up. They have been bathed because my Captain Tornado wanted to give them kisses so I had to clean them up.
I love this one's hair! Purple streaks! And she was just an all around pretty doll.
Believe me, her hair did not look this good. She had frizz frizz frizz and so many tangles I had a hard time getting them out. Because of that she got a boil dip last night. It's better but still not where I want it. It will take more work.
She came with the cute sparkle capris and then I washed the white lace top and put it on her. It's the only shirt that somewhat matched the capris and that I had readily available. Hubby has been working on our yard that we have not had any time to fix up the doll room. So dolly's and accessories are still buried in storage. I'm hoping soon I can get them out!
The capris, do they really belong to her or to someone else?
This one, had a little tinge of pink by her brow and at the tips. You know me and dolls with pink hair!
Because of the pink, I didn't mind that she had a permanent swimsuit. I knew that I had a doll with that same necklace.
So I washed her and the pink washed right out so I figured it was marker. Then I looked again and the pink was still there. Maybe I was looking at a different part of the hair when I didn't see it. No biggie, I can take a pink sharpie and give her some awesome streaks to match.
Then as I was brushing her hair the pink was reappearing. So I stuck her head under icy water. Yep, turned pink. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks.
This is the Princess Merliah Transformation doll from Barbie, A Mermaid Tale. The doll where her tail turns into a surfboard.
Remember that I have this Merliah doll.
Her hair changes to pink as well but for some reason, the Princess Merliah I just got, her tattoo didn't appear. Oh well. I still love the hair.
Okay, now on to the NIB additions! My dad picked these ones up for me. So awesome!
First today, we have the most beautiful 1996 Blossom Beauty Barbie!
Her dress magically transforms into a floral bouquet! And her magic fairy really sprinkles glitter! Well, that can become a little messy. I'm all for glitter (really!) but I think the hubby would get miffed at sparkles everywhere. :)
Back of the box reads: "Barbie asked her flower fairy in the garden to make her party dress. The fairy sprinkled Barbie with glitter and her dress magically opened to reveal blossoms in colors of the rainbow. Ken thinks Barbie is the prettiest flower of all!"
And what a great Ken too! Is that the Alan head mold? LOVE
And you can also hide your sparkle fairy in the dress so you can have glitter to transform your dress at any time (and also by pulling the string.) I'm going to have to watch YouTube to see how this looks. So many questions but I don't want to take her out of the box!
Okay, watch this. It all makes sense now. The dress opens up. :) Don't you just love the old jingles of commercials? I wonder how much someone got paid to write that song, haha.
Now we have another awesome doll. This is a beautiful AA 2000 Teacher Barbie!
What a beautiful doll.
She even comes with a chalkboard that really writes! Also included in the accessories are a pencil sharpener, erasers and some personal boards for the students to hold (I think).
On the back of the box we see that it includes three subjects: dinosaurs, music and geography!
I love her. I'm glad I have a teacher doll now as the hubby is a teacher! Anyone know if there is a Teacher Ken doll?
And the last for today. This is the special edition 1997 Carnival Cruise Barbie!
How cute is she with those star earrings and sailor outfit? And the hat!
She comes with her cruise bag, all ready to go! You can definitely tell that this outfit is from the 90's. The high waist shorts with belt and crop top. :)
The back of the box reads: Barbie looks her nautical best as she gets ready for all the excitement and fun of her first ever Carnival "fun ship" vacation!
Well that's it for today friends. Have any of these dolls made their way into your collection? Let me know in the comments!
I'll have more unboxed goodness in the next post. Stay tuned!
