Barbie Turns 50

I've written about my love for Barbie.
(click link above for pics of my collection)

I've got the 1959 original logo tattooed on my ankle.

I've collected her for years.

Barbie Millicent Roberts, I still adore you.
Happy Birthday girl!

I didn't realize Barbie had a full name. Millicent???

Ooo yeah. Barbie: The Forbidden Fruit of my youth. My stupid Feminist mother hated Barbies. Now I'm one of those sad middle aged women who buys Barbies for her daughter because SHE loves them lol. That is some serious collection, girl! Awesome.

I had no idea you were such a fan...and to know she had a full name?!? I always just assumed she was "Barbie" you know, like Cher and Madonna (though let's face it, they have full names too!)...not such a bright 8 year old was I?!?! lol!!!

I never knew Barbie had a middle name!

I loved playing with my Babies when I was little....I'd STILL play with them...I need to go buy me one.

Patience said...

I love her too!

I realllllly wish my mother hadn't given away my original Barbie with the black striped swim suit! And my original Ken doll! And my sister's Skipper doll!


Thomas said...

Oh man, I should get a Ken tattoo, sans genitalia and all (or nothing).

"I've got the 1959 original logo tattooed on my ankle."

giggles: I know you haven't had that tattoo for THAT long.
