This is a Barbie doll I have had for many years. Probably about 20 or so years to be more exact. I no longer really collect as many Barbies and female dolls as I prefer the boys. I don’t really have the room for them so most are stuffed in a trunk along with the older 1980s and 90s Kens that I don’t like as much anymore. I might decide to drag them out again one day if I ever decide what I want to do with them. There are a few Barbie’s that I still really like including this reproduction one from 1959. The real thing is the same age as me. Imagine Barbie turning the big 60 this year. That actually makes her a pig just like me too. For those who don’t know it is the year of the pig in the Chinese zodiac but I am getting really off track mentioning that. I quite like that Barbie came out in my birth year though. I got to thinking about it so that is why I am doing this post. I’m afraid her outfit is a bit dirty from being on display all these years. I tried to clean it up but did not want to make her worse. I won’t go into the details of her outfit as Vanda has featured it on her own dolls. So in honour of Barbie turning 60 here she is. I must say she has aged much better than I have and she kept her figure too.
