Barbie Dolls

JIMMY JUST LOVED TO BUY ME BARBIE DOLLS. EVERYDAY, I'D WAKE UP WITH A NEW BARBIE DOLL NEXT TO ME!....I LITERALLY HAVE HUNDREDS!...THEY ARE ALL SO BEAUTIFUL!...SOME ARE COLLECTOR EDITIONS.  I HAVE WEDDING BARBIE, REPANZUL WITH THE TOWER. ONE LOOKS LIKE IT'S FROM DR. ZHIVAGO, WITH FUR TRIMMED HAT AND COAT..CHRISTMAS AND HOLIDAY EDITIONS.......I HAVE HER RED CONVERTIBLE, AND SEVERAL ROOMS.......I HAVE MANY KELLY DOLLS, WHICH IS HER LITTLE SISTER.........I HAVE KEN DOLLS.........HORSE AND CARRIAGES.       WE HAVE THEM ALL DISPLAYED ON SHELVES IN MY HOUSE HERE.  I STILL HAVE MY VINTAGE DOLLS FROM 1960..THE ORIGINAL BARBIE WITH PLATINUM BUBBLE CUT HAIRDO...ALSO KEN AND SKIPPER, ALONG WITH A BLUE CARRYING CASE AND LOADS OF CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES. I BELONG TO THE BARBIE DOLL FANCLUB, AND GET THE MAGAZINE.  SOME BOXES I OPENED, BUT MOST I'VE KEPT UNOPENED.  THE BARBIE DOLL INDUSTRY IS VERY BIG AMONG ADULTS AS WELL AS KIDS.  I ALSO HAVE HUNDREDS OF STUFFED ANIMALS THAT JIMMY BOUGHT ME....I ALSO HAVE SEVERAL HEIRLOOM DOLLS........A VICTORIAN GIRL, A BRIDE, A FARMGIRL.........A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL DOLL, NAMED CLARISSA, WITH LONG HAIR AND RED DRESS THAT IS SO LARGE, I HAVE HER SITTING IN A CHAIR...SHE IS A "PARLOR DOLL."  AND THEN, I MUSTN'T FORGET "CHISTINA," WHO IS A BABY DOLL WHO LOOKS LIFELIKE.....I HAVE SEVERAL OUTFITS FOR HER.  SHE ALSO SITS ON THE COUCH.  IF YOU THINK I'M NUTS ABOUT MY DOLLS, JUST WATCH "QVC," TO SEE THAT DOLL-COLLECTING IS A BIG THING AMONG WOMEN!

Hi Fran. First I want to say, I like your typing in caps cause I can see it better. My eyes are getting worse all the time. Second, I have seen those doll shows on QVC and you are right. It's a big thing with adults. I used to collect bears and especially Boyds Bears which I got from QVC. I had to finally stop though as they were taking over the house. LOL.

I BOUGHT MYSELF A FEW........SWAN LAKE BARBIE AND THERESA. SOME STUFFED ANIMALS ARE AWAY IN BOXES!..........I ALSO LIKE TO COLLECT ANGEL FIGURINES......ANGEL PINS......ANYTHING WITH ANGELS! THANX, DAKOTA, FOR SUCH A NICE COMMENT!
