Today I went to Toyworld to pick up the three Denim Basics Barbies I had on lay by. Before I went to collect them I checked to see if the special was still on. It was and even better the black-haired model 05 that I had hidden at the back of the display over 3 weeks ago was still there. Well maybe it was another one but she was there anyway. I intended to do the right thing and lay by her with a couple of passable looking outfits I’d found but the cashier informed me that they would not accept a lay by of under $50. This is a regulation that some stores have and I find it infuriating. However as my 05 was the only one there I didn’t want to risk losing her so I pulled out the plastic money and bought her right away. So now I have all the Denim girls except for 08 who I will look out for.
Back at home the great de-boxing began. Do other people find the packaging for Barbies as annoying as I do? But eventually I got them all out. The light in the doll room was not great by this time but I took a few quick photos to be going on with and will do more tomorrow of them in other outfits.
So say hello to:
